Ability to perform an advanced search on emails with frequently used parameters like :
- Date Range
- subject line
- by folder
- with attachment
- me as recipient: to or cc

Allow for advance searches on the app like you can on your pc
Search is terrible, no idea what algorithm your using but it’s awful!!! Should have option to search separately the subject, body or both of the message.
Also the To or From columns as well should able to be searched. Ordering names is not consistent!!!
It’s a DB, come on folks it’s not hard!
Exactly from or exactly too as a search option

Am usually unable to search emails by sender orsubject unlike the PC outlook app where search is easy and quick.
Search based on date specific conditions not working well. For example mails or all outlook items before 03/2019 etc.

Make it possible to search for an email using dates, discriptors or key people listed in the email.
Would like a search option that doesn't group or sort threads and would be just be in chronological order

Search folders similar to the desktop folders would make the app more useable for people who use rules to sort messages into folders. Unread, flagged and categorized searches would be nice but mostly unread.
Filter and search should be easier - it is not intuitive. It is very difficult to find an email, or filter by a sender. You can’t copy and paste an email address outside of the app.

More capable search features for iPhone. At least, to be able to easily select: to, from, subject, body and from what inbox or sent mail.
If I just want to search for emails from “John Smith” to me, don’t include every email John Smith has sent (including the ones I’m just copied on).

Add features to search for other emails other than received on phone app. Eg deleted, sent, folders

There should be a much easier way to search folders. For instance, I have hundreds of folders. For me to find one being that I do not know the exact name sometimes is super difficult. They are all organized into Multiple layers of sub folders. To find one is very difficult

There is not availability to see my search folders in the outlook mobile app , same as the Outlook in the desktop. This make more difficult to work and find emails related to specific items I am monitoring.
Your search function needs to be more intuitive. When you type in a word it should be able to find what you are looking for... this is not the case. When someone replies to an email then you cannot search for the original email.

On multiple mailbox all folders are merged. This is problematic as the same folder name can exist in multiple mailbox.
Some mailboxes can have many folders and can only be located by scrolling. A find folder search will be most useful
The search function is terrible. Half the time I am unable to locate an email that I know exists. Take a look at Apple’s Mail app and duplicate that.
Your search algorithm needs to be updated to be effective.
