  2. Eliminate “top results”

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

  3. Promote / demote Email folders

    Allow App user to manually determine whether(archive) folder is demoted or promoted. it seems, per default, all folders and subfolders are visible which prevents from efficient scrolling.

  4. People icons in Search

    Please let us delete people’s icons in the search page. They make the page busy and are completely unnecessary.

  5. Ability to approve or reject moderated messages in iOS app

    Outlook for iOS does not support moderated message requests for approving or rejecting email.

    Outlook for iOS needs to provide an approve/reject button, so a moderator cannot approve or reject moderated messages when using Outlook for iOS.

  7. Private secured web search

    Norton for example has a search engine. Windows does also. If they can offer a more services private search engine built in that would be great

  8. Make it better

    1- search continues to be bad. Both on mobile (terrible) and on the new desktop version.
    2- on new desktop version the removal of the button to see the “thread/conversation” of an email is a huge miss.
    3- calendar continues to be disappointing... there has to be a better way to open an appointment and have all the info available
    4- the integration of apps keeps asking for log ins...it’s infuriating
    5- there should be a better way to identify addresses and subjects on emails to manage what’s junk and what’s focus or not focus
    7- Apple mail drop for…

  9. Remove the limits of search on Outlook mobile app

    Pls remove the limits of search results on Outlook mobile app. It should align with OWA where the full result is retrieved

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  18. 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.

  19. 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...

  20. 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...
