  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    Empty deleted items on exit or a button to delete all deleted items with one click

    The option to not have to confirm deletion

    Just as in the Windows version of Outlook has had for a very long time

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. Group email

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

    Please include a group email feature.

  11. Pinch to zoom on the opening screen

    Would you consider adding a pinch to zoom to n the opening screen similar to the function once an ema message has been opened. I am visually impaired and it would help to be able to zoom to view the list of new / existing email messages.

    Thank you!

  12. Mark Unread From Here

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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. Block an account

    I’d like to block an account to avoid any e-mails from it. I asked for support, but they replied that it is only available on webmail. I think it’s better to be done also on mobile applications.
    Thanks.
