Managing mail threads
The current system for managing the mails thread is not productive. Basically the app treats the whole conversation as one, and makes it difficult to pick and manage a single email in the middle of the conversation (be it for deleting, mark, or flag).
Opening the thread marks every mail as read. And then is painful to go to whatever email is lost in the middle the conversation.
Ability to expand a thread without opening any email. I should be able to see all the email records in the thread without having to open the thread itself.
There are plenty of suggestions for this made by users here, but under different requests because this affects so many things.

Get rid of these horrible threads. I waste so much time trying to find an individual email.
Bring back the ability to look at the individual emails in a thread.hard to see who emailed when it gets buried in a bunch of reply’s
Email Chains get lost when you respond just to a single part of the Chain on the Mobile Version
I have switched off conversation view, but need to be able to see the conversation on-demand from a specific message.
Mobile version makes it harder to delete one of a set of replies to a thread
On long threads it’s easy to forget what the email thread is about because the subject is only visible at the top of the thread. Could we keep the subject line visible and highlighted/bolded?
When viewing a thread, keep the subject line at the top frozen so that as the user scrolls, they know exactly what thread their in as they get lost in the weeds : )

There is no way to share an email, only print. How?...
Newly replied-to threads should go to the top of the inbox list when threaded view is on...

When there are a couple of threads and I want to answer or send to a new person, it’s total guesswork what will be sent and to who. Many times I don’t dare doing that and have to go to a desktop.
Could definitely be done better.
Make it easier to find buried replies in outlook mobile
It is extremely confusing when the thread has the newest response at the bottom. Should be able to have the option to flip it if wanted
Very confusing compared to iOS mail.
Need the option to select 1 Email in threads.
The current format is so confusing and really not user friendly.
Being able to manage threads settings would be nice. Have new messages on top or bottom by choice. Also being able to group or have separate threads would be useful. A simple slide button for this in settings would do.
Would be better not to have emails threaded together it’s very hard to find previous emails within a thread.

Please make a setting so you can view newest emails on top
When you forward an email from a sender, it does not allow you to then separately reply to the sender from down in the email thread.

On a received email, if I have responded one time, I can never find a way to respond to the sender again in the app. Because the conversation thread only allowed me to respond to myself!
Why is it, can it be fixed, or I was not using the app correctly?
Thread needs to work L like on Apple. Option to open the thread and select 1 email. The current format is so messy and not user friendly that the only option is to disable email thread completely
