Search folders when moving an email
Need folder quick search, either to see contents or to move emails to a folder faster

When moving or copying an email to a folder, I’d like to be able to search sub folders instead of just opened folders.
add search to folder view to search folder name or part name so filtering on the folder list, not jumping please, display a filtered list as entering. ie from inbox default display, press folder list, search then filters showing only matching results. thanks, only way to handle large folder lists and sub folders.
I have many folders in my inbox. It would save so much time to be able to search for the folder, similar to moving a folder, rather than to have to scroll down to it.
When you go to move a message and the list of folders pops up, have the focus right on the search filed so you can start typing immediately without having to select it manually.
I have a lot of folders and could use the ability to search after tapping the “move to” option in the email actions. This would save a lot of scrolling.

I have six (6) plus accounts in my Outlook for iOS. It would be awesome to be able to move my message to a different account folder. I primarily make this move from an IMAP account to an Exchange folder.

Currently when searching for an email system searches all folders, except deleted, to match the search. Would be good to be able to select a specific folder/s

When you have tens or hundreds of folders it's fundamentally impossible to locate the correct folder where to file an email through scrolling. One needs to be able to search by folder name

Pull down and type a search, just like Apple Mail.
This will also allow marking, deleting & moving emails while in Search mode.

I would like to be able select a folder such as Deleted items. So if I select Deleted and I want to search just that folder the search is only in that folder and not all folders.

Please include the complete title of a folder and location path in the search results that appear after you search for a folder to move mail to. I have multiple folders with the same name and I am unable to move mail until I get to my computer because the location path is t displayed on this version of Outlook. Thank you for your consideration of this request.

Once you move files it would be nice for outlook to remember where you moved and add that as a suggestion. Apple email does this currently and it saves much time storing emails.

Search for folder to move email to (as opposed to having to scroll through all folders).

this would save a lot of time and improve efficiency.

Make it easier to file a message you are reading.

I like how when I move an email, I can search for a folder and move the email. I would love to be able to search for a folder in general—so when I need my Drafts email folder I don’t have to scroll through dozens of folders to get down to the drafts.

Move to folder search result suggestion.
Move feature should mimic outlook Mac app. When I type a folder name into the search field, it should show the full directory. That will help distinguish folders with the same name.
Sure would save a lot of time.

When Move is selected have the app suggest the “move to” folder by using the From item. In that way one would not have to search an entire list of folders to find the destination, which sometimes lead to accidentally saving to the wrong folder. For reference, the iPhone mail app does that.

I’d like to be able to start typing in the name of the folder I want and have folders that start with those letters pop up. For my email organizing it would be faster than scrolling.
