  1. 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.

  2. Email :Preview

    Hi,

    It would be really good if we have email preview setting for inbox where we can chose to show single line or 2 lines along with subject,
    Kindly request to include this option in future releases

  3. Auto reply

    It would be nice if the auto reply box was both larger, expanding to fill the added text as well as retaining test formatting, including keeping carriage returns.

  4. Group email

    It is too cumbersome to input every email address for a specific group.

    Please include a group email feature.

  6. Sync with iOS calendar

    I’ve always had a Hotmail account. When I would accept an event, it would show up on my iOS calendar that came with iPhone. Since I downloaded your app, things are easier, BUT half of my calendar items are on iOS and and all accepted email events now show up on outlooks calendar. I don’t like yours and am used to iOS.

  7. Do not disturb

    Be able to set times to not receive email notifications. I have a boss who works in the middle of the night and sends emails. My phone is set to do not disturb so I do not hear alerts but I see the banner preview of the message and it makes me look at them and then I cannot sleep.

  9. Show the date when scrolling down emails

    When scrolling back/down through emails in side panel it is unclear what the date is. Just showing the day of a the week is not helpful.

  11. Time zone support

    One major issue holding me back from using Outlook Calendar full on is the missing time zone support - in IOS native calendar it’s easy to search for a country or city and select time zone. Please please please

  15. Encryption and Recall Sent Emails

    I would have switched to another email, but my business is tied to my onmicrosoft account.
    I would greatly appreciate if I could send encrypted emails and recall sent emails due to the nature of my business.

  19. Suggested folders for filing

    It would be great if when filing you suggested folders based on past behavior. Would speed things up a bit. Thanks.

  20. Apply same rules as desktop app

    I set rules in outlook on my PC (for example email notifications to move to a particular folder). When I check my emails from the mobile app, the rules I have created don’t apply until I log in from my PC. I would like all rules I created from desktop app to apply on the mobile app automatically.
