  2. Bring back search field at top of inbox

    Please let me search my inbox from a search field at the top of my inbox, instead of having to click the separate magnifying glass icon at the bottom, which is less efficient.

  3. Eliminate “top results”

    Simple - get rid of top results. It is distracting and confusing.

  4. Search, “select all”, delete

    Would love to be able to do a search for specific emails from the same source or with the same subject, “select all” within the search, and then delete everything in that search with one click.

  5. Exclude Junk Mail from Spotlight Search Index

    Hello,
    I use the Outlook app on an iOS device. When I use the iOS Spotlight search (swiping down on the home screen) to do a global search on my device, often there are Outlook Mail entries that show up there. This is awesome.
    However, I get a lot of junk mail across my accounts, which also shows up a lot of the time. Basically whenever a query somewhat matches a junk mail I've gotten. This leads to often very vulgar and explicit content being displayed when executing a totally normal search query.
    Can I prevent Junk Mail from showing…

  6. Better search

    Project based emails - so email organised easily
    Improved search - even when you search on a specific name doesn’t return all emails outlook is rubbish at search

  9. Some emails don’t show up when I search for them

    Some emails don’t show up when I search for them. I would like them all to show up when I search a keyword.

  10. Multi-select to delete after searching keyword

    When searching for keyword and list of emails appear, allow us to delete/permanently delete the emails.

  11. Search Results Should Allow Bulk Actions

    I sometimes like to search for all of a certain type of email (for example Amazon orders) and then move then all into specific folders. Currently I don't believe bulk actions are allowed from the search results page meaning every single email must be manually opened and then moved, which is very tedious. This should be easy to implement and would make life much easier!

  13. Select multiple emails after searching

    I would like to be able to select multiple emails after searching for similar ones. I was surprised when I wasn’t able to do that.

  14. Search Option

    Search option doesn’t work perfectly. It’s difficult to find old emails.

  15. Search trash

    I understand there are those who don’t want to search the trash folder but there are also those who do. I would like to suggest a toggle option to serve both needs. Right now if I delete something and need to find it in a week I have to use the desktop app.

  16. Accurate search results

    When searching emails by name or key words, the results given should match more accurately. When I type a specific word I get results that are not relevant and have to scroll to find words that match within the results. Specifically in outlook for IOS, I don’t get all matching results. It typically only shows emails from me, when I actually need the original sent to me. Outlook didn’t used to behave this way in either iOS or windows.

  17. Select All after Filter

    Need to be able to filter on a sender, subject, or keyword, then “Select All Filtered”, and then have options (for only the selected) to delete, archive, move, etc...

  18. Search via pull-down, not separate screen

    It’s really confusing to have to go to another screen to search. Everything else on my iPad has a Search box which you pull down from the top of the list of things to be searched (in this case, that would be the list of email titles). As a consequence, every time I need to search, I try to pull down the list of emails, and then realise that won’t work...

  19. Ability to swipe to delete or mark unread while searching

    If you search for emails from a user, once it displays the results swiping left and right on specific emails doesn’t work. Adding this would be a very easy way to help clean up the inbox or to delete items that aren’t needed. Currently you have to go into each email and delete it from that screen, so there’s a lot of repetitive steps needed when working with a lot of emails.

  20. Open keyboard on search

    It is a small thing, but when hitting the search magnifying glass if the keyboard would automatically pop up that would be great. Saves a click!
