- Date Range
- subject line
- by folder
- with attachment
- me as recipient: to or cc

Mail search is not effective in iPad. If you could improve search feature it would be really helpful

Add search strings to search functionality so it is possible to search for something very specific.
Example: In outlook desktop version you can search for cc:person, which will provide all search results where person was in cc.
There are several search strings in outlook desktop version, all which make finding a specific email much easier.
Fix the search feature when searching for email subject. When I search one time I may or may not find what I’m looking for. It maybe a search by email address or subject, but most times it gives me different results. It totally irritates me and I am about to go away from exchange and away from outlook if this feature can’t be improved. Maybe I’m using it incorrectly, but it seems to be terrible.

Most of the iPad users use Outlook, and its really ironic that iPad Pro are such beasts in terms of performance whilst the search function in Outlook iOS is primitive.
Having such powerful mobile devices now (iPad Pro, Samsung Note, etc) one expects feature parity of Outlook on mobile devices versions as that on Desktop.
So I would also request strongly to enhance the search function in Outlook iOS and all mobile versions to be as powerful as Advanced Search function as in Outlook for Win/Mac.
iOS mail app searches all mail. Outlook mobile only searches back 10 days. Almost worthless search function.
When searching allow the notes field to be searched as well.
Improve mail search functionality & user friendliness in outlook messages to the same level or better as in apple mail
In addition to the global search already in place, it would be very helpful to be able to specify a folder and search only within it.
Search in Good was fantastic. Just copy it. The current search is too broad and completely useless. I have to use my desktop based outlook to really search for content within the 100 emails I get per day.
Please give a chronological search return function. The way the search AI returns results are counterproductive.
Restore the search feature to previous capabilities. The search feature on the latest update is a disaster.
When you’re moving an email to a specific folder there’s a search bar to aid you finding the particular folder you want. However, when you’re just looking for a folder to access what’s already stored there, there is no a search feature to find that folder quickly. Would be very helpful when you have a lot of folders like I do.
I can not search with the same I can do in iOS
Simply unread to me
Better search options. The results in the iPhone app find what I’m looking for but outlook does not. Also needs better sync.
Search the mails with specific text, and be able to forward/transfer the resultant mails to a Specific- old/new folder.
It will help the user in using the folders for easy viewing of the mails later.
Let user to use not only 1 key word but 2 or 3. Also it will be better to add date interval limitation during searching

My account only stores one months worth of email. This is not enough as many times I need to retrieve emails active longer. My iPad has 1TB of storage so storing and downloading all emails is easy. This option shoiuld be available.
If you search for Amazon.com, it would be nice to get all the emails that have that header instead of every email that includes the word Amazon somewhere in it.

With 37,000 employees globally, if I want to share information with those in a particular Employee Resource Group (ERG) there is no current way to identify those in the group. Having an additional column in Outlook specifically containing which ERG’s a employee belongs to that is searchable, would be a tremendous help! We currently have 9 different ERG’s within my company and all ERG leads supporting 3,000 members would like this ability very much!
A separate search required for inbox and sent items, otherwise it is very difficult to identify the mails.
