It would be great if HTML functionality can be enabled in outlook instead of sending emails in text, this would provide a complete mobile work experience
Is there any way that can ignore HTML for mail email on the reading? I expect to read bigger font size and it can warp automatically.
Stationary forms for emails would be cool, even yahoo mail has it
For IOS apps one should be able to easily move formatted text including html links from Word to Outlook. Currently you can only copy from word and paste to outlook where it is unformatted and plain text. Frustrating to note have this simple feature.

We are still having this issue here at Pearson Education with sending HTML Formatted message bodies with ms-outlook://compose . Worked perfectly fine in the 4.12 version of the Outlook client for iPad. Also worked perfectly fine in our previous email applications prior to the company making a big switch from Google App Suite to Microsoft Office 365.
Please fix as it is affecting our sales reps ability to do their jobs.

This is a very detrimental bug for our business, and many clients are dismayed with Microsoft and Outlook because of it. Fix this bug!

Desktop senders often paste huge (1000+ pixel-wide) images into their messages.
When those images load on a phone, the text becomes microscopic as the email zooms out to fit the content.
Instead of shrinking the whole email to fit, I want the text to render as though the images aren’t there.
If the images load as small thumbnails then you could let me tap to ‘preview’ them if I actually need to see them at full size.
It would be nice to have a feature to use simple HTML in email to create elements such as tables.
If this could be done with using the URL scheme (ms-outlook://email@example.com) with a parameter such as &html=true then this would enable this feature especially from a third party app perspective for developers.

I have version 4.12.1 and am still able to use HTML bodies in Outlook but some of my users are reporting it coming through as plain text so I suspect they have updated to the later versions.
HTML formatted emails have been working for us for the last several months. As it broke with one of the latest mobile Outlook updates, it harms the way our business community have been communicating and leaves us with no good solution to go forward.
It would be great if MS team could take this idea seriously and implement some time soon.
ms-outlook://compose is not working anymore, now body's HTML is showed up as plain text.

Our own app was still be able to resend HTML email to Outlook App using Outlook URI scheme in early Dec 2019, with Outlook App 4.15. In fact, we have been using this method to compose business look email for over a year, as early as using Outlook App 4.3.
My first report for of losing HTML email compatibility is in early Dec, with Outlook App version 4.14 and 4.15. This was resumed for short while after I reported. But after the release of Outlook App 4.16, Outlook App unable to render HTML email. And I was told to go to this page and vote for this as a new feature.
So Microsoft, please seriously consider to bring this basic feature back, having color and tabular rich text formatting is very typical demand from business.

For the past 3 years the option to add content in body dynamically via our own App using iOS URL scheme, i.e. ms-outlook://compose, was working perfectly. But since November this year it seems that this feature has been removed. Now instead of adding the HTML content, Outlook adds raw HTML code.
I raised this issue with your in-App sport but was informed that it’s not supported. I have been advised to submit it as a new feature request.
Expecting that you will re-add this basic feature that is supported by major competitors.
Please start HTML for the emails. This is seriously needed for the business emails
In the past few dogfood builds the html rendering has gotten very jumpy. The view needs to set a fixed point on the display and then load everything above and below the view without the visible display being redrawn.
The same is true after the view rest of email button is tapped.
What hotmail email address was on this cell phone
When will html capability’s be added?
I need html emails and signatures because I use outlook desktop at work and it will be grateful to use the same application for the mobile
I’d like to be served plain text versions of emails
