I am unable to find info even something as recent as last week. This is regardless if desktop or mobile version in comparison to Google gmail
When searching for feature you should be able to pick the mail box you want to search in

Currently search features list all emails from all folders rather the specific folder.

Searching for emails by To or From - at the moment it just brings up To
Please add a function to allow me to search specifically by ‘To’, ‘From’ and ‘Subject’

Never can find anything useful when I search. Have to use another program to find simple keywords in an email
James Kendall commented
The search function leaves much to be desired. Gmail search is much more comprehensive and searches for the keyword in any email and email address. Why is outlook so insufficient in this manner?

Why is the list of emails when I search truncated??’n
Jon Ahrendt commented
The auto suggest for contacts and corresponding emails that show up are confusing. In Outlook on desktop, it doesn't perform that way. It gives you emails, not people. Having the search box moved from bottom to top is less convenient to use than of it stayed at the bottom.
Can’t stand the way the inbox is organized. I want a mobile version that looks and feels exactly like desktop (which I also have). It’s infinitely easier to navigate, sort, search, etc. with all the functionality in the desktop version that allows me to customize how I want it. Don’t have that here and it’s incredibly frustrating. Would be a good way to separate your product from Apple’s. Right now, I don’t see much incremental value.

It,s very difficult to find emails. Even when you type an specific email address, the app just won’t show all the email received or sent to it. Also would be nice to search email by date, recipient to, recipient from, etc.

Need much better search options in both inbox and sent folders

Have a separate search for email and one for calendar
Andrew Monu commented
At the moment when you search for the sender of a past email or subject the results are awful
Juan Francisco Catalan commented
The search in outlook doesn’t work, and I am almost just to delete the app, it’s only for the calendar with my desktop that I don’t do it.

Mimic gmail search functionality. It is much easier to search emails in gmail vs outlook.
Meegan Moszynski commented
The search function in Outlook is terrible. I can almost never find the email I am looking for, whereas in Gmail I always find it 100% of the time.
Can’t find emails quickly
Nambiar, Devin commented
In Gmail, you can search multiple things by just typing in commas in the search query. i.e. “from:firstname.lastname@example.org, subject: advanced search, date before 5/26/18” and the search will plug in all those filters. In outlook, there’s nothing like that and when I try it says no messages found. It’s exorbitantly harder to find old messages in outlook than in google. Please please please tell your PMs to step up their game, Microsoft Outlook team.
