  1. Support Gmail Labels

    As a heavy user of Gmail labels, is this the most important feature that I want, to make Outlook for iOS my default mail app.
    Now you can only move a message to a folder.

  2. Append to email

    I would like to have the ability to link an email to an existing email thread.

    I had an email thread and then had to ask someone else for their assistance but did not want to forward the thread or use the same subject (I had to be more descriptive). It would have been great to be able to link this new email to my already existing thread.

    It would also be great to be able to link two threads together.

    This idea would be helpful in all versions of outlook, be it moble, desktop, or web based.

    I really…

  3. Remember Last 'Move Mail' Folder

    When moving/filing lots of emails it can be a pain to have to scroll from the top of the folder structure every time rather than remember the last folder an email was moved to.

    This is how it behaves in native iPhone Mail client and full blown Outlook when moving emails from Inbox

  7. Embed hyperlinks in text

    It's much cleaner and oftentimes more descriptive to hyperlink text, rather than displaying the entire URL.

    Pages for iOS has a good implementation of this: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH3550?locale=en_US

    I would use this feature day in and day out to provide links to resources on my company's website by making the title of an article clickable, rather than showing the entire article URL.

    Thanks!

  8. Play audio files

    When someone leaves a voicemail for me on my home phone line, I get emailed with a MP3 attachment. Natively, the Apple Mail app supports these files, I think the Outlook app should too. Including WAV and other common audio files too. For now, I have to keep the Apple Mail app connected just in case I get this type of email.

  9. Offline support

    Emails are not cached, when responding to an email, attempting to load the original message requires an Internet connection.

    Recent files should be cached, as well as attachments opened.

  10. Copy mail to any folder.

    Copy from inbox to a different folder. Not move but copy. As of now you can move mail around to different folders but can not copy mail to a folder.

  11. Redirect

    I use to use an option to redirect an email in lieu of forwarding. This allowed the end receiver to reply to the original sender, not the person who forwarded. This was great for misdirected emails. I'd love to see that as an option.

  12. Signature - Allow re-enablement of Default Signature

    Please allow users to enable the default signature - which used to be something like "sent with outlook mobile" with a hyperlink to the app embedded within the signature text.

  14. Export emails by folders

    It would be great to also be able to export emails by folders and not all of them at the same time.
    This would help to archive them easier (by month or year for example).
    Thanks

  15. Recently used subject lines

    It would be extremely handy if I could start typing the subject line and have the matching subject line automatically completed. I'm always having to type long subject lines which are essentially the same project reference at the beginning (assists with filing and searching later). If it could be populated onto a drop down or simply autocomplete as you type, it would save me a lot of time! Thanks and keep up the good work. This product is getting better and better!

  17. Access To In-Place Archive In iOS Outlook App

    This is a much needed feature, as we and many other businesses rely on our archive. I do a lot of work on the go and really need access to the archive on my phone and tablet.

  20. Schedule sent mail

    I would like to go to the sent mailbox and schedule a sent mail to move to the inbox at a future time, so I check for response and follow up. Right now the schedule is disabled in the sent mail folder.
