  2. REMOVE THE "ADD A MESSAGE" Put the Reply, Reply All, Forward buttons back

    Get rid of this and replace with reply forward buttons.
    With the latest update the forward and reply and flag buttons are now hidden underneath a separate button. Before there were those buttons either at the beginning of the email or at the bottom. Could you please add that back
    Please remember this is for email and not Facebook.

  3. Confirm folder name when moving an email to a folder.

    To be sure that an email was moved to the correct folder it would be good if the folder name would be shown while copying the mail.
    Maybe the app could even suggest folders like the mail function of iOS does.

  4. Add the time an email was received.

    Telling me an email was received "yesterday" is only mildly helpful. I'd like to know the time an email was received

  5. Add to rules in app

    I auto filter certain emails recipients to folders through rules to streamline my inbox, so it would be great if thru the app you can update rules. I often want to add or update a rule which it seems you can’t do.

  7. Categories

    I can categorize emails on my computer but not on my phone, so I have to mark emails that need categorization as unread so I remember to categorize them on my computer.

  8. Groups shared calendars

    I need to be able to see the shared calendars of each of the Groups that I am a member/owner of. The Groups app is no longer available for many in our organization.

  12. Colour code accounts

    I notice with the new update, you have the title of the folder up top with a large solid lock of blue.

    Instead of being blue for all accounts, you should allow users to set a colour attributed with each of their accounts and this is reflected with a colour change up top as well.

  14. Include the Categorize Feature in the mobile app.

    I use the colour coded categories to make sure I don’t miss orders. Please add this feature to the mobile app so that I can keep organised from my phone instead of having to go back and mark everything on my work computer at the end of the day.

  15. Most recent email at the top of email chain

    Currently when you go though an email chain the oldest email stays at the top and you have to scroll down to see the most recent email. Very annoying when trying to review previous emails in the chain.
    It would be great if you had an option to reverse this so that the newest email was always at the top of your email chain.

    Please Support the Siri Shortcuts for iOS 12. (e. g. send a mail)

  17. Attach multiple photos

    I have to go back and select each photo individually to emails. This takes a lot of time and looking through photos.

    I prefer how it was using the provided Mail APP via Apple Software where you can select multiple photos and then hit “attach” when sending an email.

  18. Sign out

    It’d really good to be able to ‘sign out’ or ‘log off’ after using this app. Just for security reasons & because oftentimes people will be using this app on mobile phones.

    This feature was available before the latest update.

  19. Mark Unread From Here

    Similar to Gmail's "mark unread from here" so that the "unread email" count is accurate.

  20. Categories on iOS

    I use at least 13 different categories for my super-complicated schedule, and since the iOS app clips text on calendar events I rely on categories to quickly know which type of event I’m looking at. As it is now, I have to tap on each event to see what it’s about. On the Mac Outlook app, categories work great, and my admin puts in time making sure events are categorized properly. However, I’m usually not in front of my laptop, and so would greatly benefit from seeing categories on the iOS app and the Watch app.
