Mute threads on mobile app
I often use my phone as a tool to triage my email inbox. It's frustrating to archive an email that I don't need and see it pop back in my inbox. With longer email threads, I have to archive them countless times. Would LOVE to be able to mute an email once and for all!
When I have my days of from work I would like to be a ale to mute my work email inbox so I’m not thinking about work for my 3 days off. You could give the option of a drop down box under notification to select how many days you wish to mute. As I don’t work set days I can’t just mute it for the weekend. Also working night shifts I get woken up to email notifications when trying to sleep. So would also be handy to be able to select how many hours you would like to mute.
Person 1: Thanks!
Person 2: Thanks!
Person 3: Thanks!
Person 4: Thanks!
Me: please make it stop.
Please add mute threads.
Since I use the app for my professional account only, I would like to define mute times (e.g. weekend or holidays), where I don't receive any new email on my phone. The app would not show, that there are new messages (no indicator at the app icon and also no push notifications). When the mute time is over, I might receive one push notification like "in the meanwhile you received X messages" instead of a single push notification for each message.
Maybe it would be also good to define exceptions for emails from certain addresses, which I can receive despite I have an activated mute time
Add an option to get no app notifications for a given e-mail thread.

Adding a mute for reply-all threads

People add me to an email about which I'm totally uninterested and then for days exchange comments; the ever-lengthening email continues to show up in my inbox, even if I delete or archive it. I'd like to mute the conversation so that the meaningless (to me) exchanges go on in the background.

To be able to set outlook not to notify me of emails at certain time parameters eg outside of work hours. Perhaps also by location?
Add the ability to mute conversations/threads. This will disable notification of new mail to the thread without deleting or archiving them. Useful when added to a very active thread, such as P1s, and I want to have history of the conversation without knowing about each email coming through.

I would like to mute my work account for the year because I’m in school.
I am often looped in on noisy e-mail threads that send me lots of notifications. It would be nice to “silence” that e-mail thread, and perhaps only get notifications if I’m specifically at-mentioned in the body of the e-mail.

I manage 3 emailboxes, but really only want notifications for 1. Can you make a function available where I can mute an inbox from notifications, or make it really clear to whom the message has been send.

I’m getting batch emails I can’t mute. It contributes to some alarm fatigue. Please address

It would be nice if there was an option to add E-mail addresses to mute notifications for when receiving an E-mail from specified addresses.

It would be great to have the ability to “mute” an account. They is, to be able to turn it off and back on again.
In the “off” setting, no mail checks would be made. No incoming mail would be processed. No notifications or alerts would happen.
In the “on” setting all operations would work as they do now.
Currently, the only way to turn off and turn on accounts is to delete them and then create them again. That’s troublesome for certain accounts due to all the host and credential settings involved.
Thank you for considering the enhancement to make your app truly world class!

Can you add an option to mute email converisation ? Than app should not notify on a new email for a week or a year. Like Whatsapp.

The reply all default is killing my inbox and I’d like to be able to mute the threads where people reply constantly

I can't believe this isn't a feature. It would completely change the way I interact with my work email on weekends or on vacation. PLEASE make this happen!
It would be nice to mute an account or toggle it off when you go on Vacation. If you have personal and work accounts in Outlook, you still see that you have unread messages in accounts if you only select your personal account on the icon. I would like to disable it without having to delete it.

On the desktop version I can mute a conversation. Especially useful when a new person starts and the entire org sends a welcome email. Sucks when mobile. Would be a wonderful addition to the mobile app.

It’d be great to have the option to mute notifications for an email conversation! But still keep notifications on globally.
