Ability to change email Sort Order Within Threads
It would sure be nice to have the option to change the sort order in which the emails appear within the threads. I, for example, would like the most recent email to show up at the top of the list. Currently the most recent email is showing at the bottom.
It's dumb - and the dumbest part is that the ancient and now defunct Windows-Phone version of Outlook did it correctly.
On my iPad, message threads have most recent at the bottom. I would prefer to have the most recent on top as it is on regular computers using the same version of outlook.

Yes, I would really like to have the newest message at the top.
In outlook app, tap at top that says INBOX. This opens a side menu with all your folders. Tap the gear icon. Scroll down to “organize by thread” and slide bar to off.
WHAT?!?! Not possible??? Are you kidding? WHEN WILL THIS BE ADDED.
Outlook on iOS has the most recent message on the bottom. I would strongly prefer to have it on top, which is default in most mail clients.
Add an option for users to select it themselves.
Add me to the list of individuals who cannot use Outlook until this is implemented. Sort order can be changed on every platform except iOS. This was first suggested in Jan 2016. Over four years ago and still under review.
Crazy that this has not been implemented years ago!
how many votes and comments are needed for developers to implement this?
When I look at threaded email conversation on my desktop Outlook, the most recent message is at the top. On iOS Outlook, the most recent message is at the bottom. PLEASE FIX THIS. It makes using the iOS Outlook app painful to use. Why the difference? Simply baffling. PLEASE provide an option to control threaded sort order.
This client is great and has some nice functionality. But, honestly having to scroll to the bottom of a long thread to read the most recent reply is a deal breaker. It’s 2020 and people have been asking for this for YEARS! Make it happen!

sort messages in threads - newest at the top and / or newest at the bottom. Only unread message expanded and others collapsed.
With all the great improvements done, I still find it confusing to identify the latest email received in a long email thread that contains many replies with the same “trailing body”.

IOS team, if you go back and look through the threads, we have been asking for this feature since 2012. Wondering why it has taken so long to provide this small adjustment
^^ What everybody else
Is asking... newest to oldest sort order for threead please
Messages in a thread should have the choice to be listed most recent on top.
I want a setting to show the newest mails in a conversation on the top and not on the bottom.
Organize by thread button in the mail settings in active by default. While the “Organize by Thread” button is active, new message for the same subject’s are allways displayed at the bottom.
I want the new message to be displayed at the top topic, when the “Organize by Thread” button is active. But for this, on more option button should be added that the most recent message at the top. Can you add this in the next update?
Please provide us with the feature to enable the newest messages to come on top of mail conversations.
Nobody enjoys scrolling down 50 mails to look at the newest one on the bottom.
Currently the thread is in what appears to be a random order and I would like it to be sorted sequentially with the earliest/oldest one at the bottom and the most recent at the top. Thank you.
I think I found how to do this !
On my iPhone I opened Outloook, Clicked on "Inbox", the the gear icon (settings), scroll down and deselect "Organize by Thread" (I also turned off "Focused Inbox", as I want to decide what's important to me)
Now my inbox seems to behave as it should.
