    • 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

          I think it would be helpful if the user could edit the order or Reply All/Reply/Edit Recipients to customize their preferences. Ad an alternative, make Reply the first option.

              • Add the ability to color code events in the calendar

                Google calendar allows you to make different events different colors. It’s VERY useful and you should add this feature. They give the option of about 10-12 difficult color options. PLEASE PLEASE add this!!

                      I don’t use folders, only Categories. It would be useful to see my emails that I have categorized and be able to categorize in the Outlook iOS app.

                                • Reply All is default in new version. Default to reply, not reply all in add message

                                  The default in the replying to a message is Reply All. This default should be able to be changed, otherwise we are going to have a lot of people accidentally replying all to mass emails / the entire org when they only meant to respond to the original sender.

                                  • Allow images in signature (Outlook for iOS)

                                    I love outlook for iOS.

                                    One of the features I would like to see implemented is the ability for images to be used in our signature / sign-off at the bottom of every email we send.

                                      I do not like having message previews! I just want each email listed and I will open the if and when I'm ready to read them. Do i do not like message preview. Thank you.

                                      • Empty deleted items on exit

                                        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

                                        • 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.
