  1. 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. 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. View in Light Mode

    There needs to be a per email option to view individual emails in light mode, when a user has dark mode enabled. Some emails have attachment formatting which results in black text on the black dark mode background. To view these few emails, a user needs to leave the email, go to settings, enable light mode, go back to the email, read and take care of the email, then go through all those steps again to reenable dark mode. Gmail for iOS has already implemented this feature to great success.

  6. Play My Email for non-US regions

    The Play My Email feature is limited to devices registered in the US-Region only which is a very myopic view point on Outlook app usage given how many global companies are leveraging O365.

    It would be a great win to expand this capability at least initially to devices leveraging English as the device language.

  9. Ability to hide message previews

    Forcing us to view message previews in a folder takes away from valuable smart phone screen real estate. Please give us the option to enable or disable message previews in all folders, especially the inbox.

  10. Option to not automatically mark item read

    If I am on an email and perform some action on it (move, delete, etc) and the pointer moves to the next email which happens to be unread, that new selected email is marked as read. For now I have to swipe to mark as Unread because I don’t want to process/read it yet.

  11. Better Spam Block

    Currently, one can block a spam e-mail but they still come back through and in addition, so many repeated and or similar spam headers consistently find their way through.

    It is becoming somewhat relentless and am unhappy as have never contacted these companies of which us concerning in how they got hold of my e-mail. Especially, quite a few are phishing e-mails!

  16. Search feature improvement

    Enable search directly from anywhere in app not forcing to exit and go to search.
    And many e mails and threads do not appear on searches need to go to computer to look for anything and even then, not efficient at searches of past messages, attachments not calendar data.

  20. One line view - only subject & sender

    Like on desktop, can you please give us option to have a one line view so the inbox is neat and tidy. It would be nice to have option not to see the first line of body.
    Thanks,
    Ajay
