    Please allow us to search by:
    1. Folder (Inbox or Sent)
    2. Recipient (to:, from:, or cc:)
    3. Subject or Body

    And finally, when you click on a contact from a search, add some options to "view emails from, including, or to, this person"

    All e-Mails which I can find using search from the O365 web version or using the iOS Mail äpp are not showing in Outlook iPhone.

    It’s really hard to find emails when you use the search function. It won’t show people you have cc’d when you search for their name. It only shows the ones you have sent directly to them.
    When I search for a name, it should show all emails their name is in regardless if they were directly emailed or copied in. Thanks

    Very difficult to search for emails when the entire thread is bundled together. Suggest have email chains visible but also have individual emails exactly like desktop version.

    It’s horrible and so hard to find emails

    Also the ability to search specific folders from iPhone app

  • Charles Hoffmeister commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    One of the most annoying things when searching is that there’s no search results just limited to the focused inbox. I have all my accounts with gmail and when I search for email I get tons of results from spam etc that come up in the results. Just like with the focused inbox there should be a “focused” search.

    Contact search needs significant improvement. Search by company name and both last and first name.

    Date and time NEED to be on the emails for goodness sake!

    Outlook is definitely a great app, specially on PCs.

    If you receive 30+ emails a day, PC Outlook helps you a lot when you need to find email you received or sent.

    Unfortunately, on iOS, search is not very intuitive. You can hardly find what you are looking for. It is usually much faster to go back to my office and turn on the computer and search than on my iPad.

    Wildcards such as To:NAME, from:NAME don't seem working.

    Allow an advanced search ribbon or box to display in Mac Outlook that you can preset to allow for faster searches.

    Need to be able to search individual folders. When you have 40 plus folders with up to 500 emails in each it’s crazy you can’t search just that folder.

    Get with the times guys and make this happen
