Outlook for iOS

Search old emails

Need to be able to search emails older than one month. Many email apps have a "search on server" option. This would make Outlook almost perfect.

        Work saved in old system were not moved to the new system. More work for me when all has to be copied and my access to the old files were taken away. Not much of an improvement.

        I can’t search old emails anymore on my iPhone. I need to be able to see more then just 5 emails ????

        Hard to search emails. The search was not as friendly as we had in Gmails. Old emails did not appear - limited.

        It is so hard to search on old emails. Most of the time when you search it wasn’t there, but when you look in to your emails one by one, its just there. Not everything will appear on the search results. Even you search by sender/recipient.

        I'm honestly shocked that this isn't already a feature. I've been using outlook for exactly a month now and, while I love the app, I'm going to have to uninstall it now as no server search function for older emails renders it completely useless. Yesterday I could find my flight details. Today I can't.

        I find it very hard to find my old messages there should be an easier way to look for a message that has been sent a few weeks or possibly months ago

        The mobile app is s pain to use, especially when trying to find old messages. The nesting of messages drives me batty

        I want all my emails, at least the possibility to search for them. Even those since a while ago.

        Hi - would really like the ability to download all old emails on phone. Now it's only going back 30 days/1000 emails. To go back any further, you have to manually keep selecting "load more conversations".

        Thanks

        Dear Team,

        I face issues when searching old mails , unable to find messages at right time.

        Search all emails (not just downloaded)

        It's f-ing ridiculous this does not already happen

        Rather than just loading 1000 messages or 1 months worth, I'd like the option to load all emails. Would love to use Outlook exclusively instead of default iOS Mail app but this limitation prevents it.
