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
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.

I was told by the Support team that Search “only works with Google, Outlook and Office 365 accounts.
By default, if you search for emails all accounts will be selected, but if you select one of your Google accounts, you'll also see results from the trash.”
Is it possible to change this so that Search works (searching Trash) in other accounts like iCloud and Yahoo?
Seems like some users are against searching Trash. I find it very useful sometimes, especially if you delete soneth8ng by accident and need to find it later.
Thx and regards,

Make mail search option available in specific folder of users choice.

I would like to see all of my emails from an account on the iOS notification screen, but only get an audible alert for my favorites. This works with the native iOS mail app and is a convenient way to quickly see mail from an account.
I’m missing the tool that is permitting us to search key words or persons within a specific directory. I have over 200 thousand e-mails in different directories. I would like to focus my search in for example my sent folder rather than having hundreds of results coming from multiple folders.
Searching for an email; from, subject, to, etc. It is imposible to understand the app logic. Is frustrating and unpractical.
Not search global.

Can not use key word or email address to search email
Currently the search feature is very basic, and given the small screen it's not practical to look for specific emails at all.
Can you please help add at least basic search filter functionality to make this easier?
Exchange syncing - with more people using apps for work (iPad pro users for example) it makes sense for MS Outlook to have greater search functionality. Currently exchange syncing is limited to 30 days. This needs to be much broader is users are going to solely use the app.
This app is useless to me without this feature. It only searches all locations and returns way too many results. Need to be able to search just one folder at a time, e.g. Sent, Deleted, client folders I’ve set up, etc. this is a pretty basic email function, I don’t understand why it hasn’t been added and I see others have commented the same.
The search function is really slow and doesnt pull all mail. The apple mail search function is far more effective
Search should behave like search in apple mail.
Could you have a search bar at the top of the list of mail folders? I have a very long list of folders and a search option would help a lot.
Thank you for considering,
On outlook you are able to search from: someone, or to: someone or with a subject: key word and so on.
This is non existent in the app and the general search is very hit and miss, completely missing results that are visible at the top of my inbox otherwise.

Currently, Outlook mobile only returns the latest 100 search results, which isn’t helpful for our users. Please either increase this value or let it be configurable.
