    Hey everyone! Thank you for your patience and apologize for any frustrations. While All bugs have been resolved on Apple’s end, the spell checker inside the app is linked to your device and keyboard settings. However, due to limitations in the Outlook mobile app, this feature is currently only available when using the quick reply option. To vote / comment on the spellcheck feature in the compose screen please go to the following link: https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293349-outlook-for-ios/suggestions/34198510-spell-check-in-the-compose-screen-view

    If you have any questions, please contact us inside the app at Settings>Help & Feedback> Contact support we look forward to assisting you. :-)

  4. Cyrillic support

    A better Cyrillic support, a lot of my mails are delivered with "?" Symbols

  5. Show email address of unknown senders

    To help reduce scamming and phishing attempts, if a sender is unknown the email should come from the email address, not the first and last name used to sign the account up.

    If you received an email from: 5793@ceY538.co instead of "Australia Post" it would be pretty obvious it was a scam email..

  6. RSA Token import

    When receiving an RSA token in the mobile format, Outlook does not allow the link to simply be tapped to import the token. This does work when opening the same message in other mail clients, the native IOS/Apple mail for example.

    The tokens are formatted as follows :
    com.rsa.securid://ctf?ctfData=1234512345.....

    In order to import the token when the message is opened in Outlook, the entire string needs to be copied and then manually pasted into the RSA application. This is quite cumbersome, especially since the default text selection misses the initial com.rsa.securid://

    BTW this also is the case for Outlook on…

  9. Bypass account login error screen

    I encountered a temporary login problem with one of my email accounts that only affected the mobile email client. However, the Outlook app would not allow me to clear the login / credentials screen for the account without deleting the account entirely. It should notify of the error but provide an option to clear the notification without having to delete the account. Thank you!

  10. Categorize "Note To Self"

    The "Note To Self" feature is great but I'm unable to search for all my notes-to-self using "Note To Self" as the search criteria. I hope that makes sense. I would love to be able to search for, and see in one collected list, all the notes-to-self that I haven't addressed yet instead of having to scroll through all my emails to find them. I suggest being able to categorize "Note To Self in the next update? Thanks

  11. Focused & Other

    Hey guys I have a suggestion when you are in your mailbox, you have two options Focused & Others if you press either of the one, the one you chose will become underlined and darkgrey fonted. However the font colours should be otherway around, otherwise it is confusing. The one you choose should become black and underlined and the which is not choosen should become grey. So the only thing you guys should do is, change the font colours = the one which is underlined should become black! To make it more clear for the users! Thank you very much…

  15. Ability to view .png files

    I get an automatic email weekly that contains a .png image. Unfortunately outlook doesn't recognize the format so I need to use the stock iOS email app.

  17. Jump to next mail by deleting/archiving a mail

    It would be much more comfortable when the App would jump directly to the content of the next mail after deleting a mail. So it works in Windows ob a pc or in Apple Mail. When you delete a Mail you see the next mails text.

  18. Calendar Timezone lock

    Would be nice to get a Timezone lock function. The iOS stock calendar app has it. It prevents entries to move in the calendar when you move with the device clock into a different time zone. I.e. I entered my flight departure is at 10am because I know it'll be at 10am that location. Outlook will currently move it as per the no. of hours the Timezone differs.

  20. DELETE vs SAVE

    There is a very frustrating (dangerous) aspect to OUTLOOK..
    please will you investigate what options are available to prevent this poor ERGONOMIC design?

    As a result of this, I have 'LOST' hours of critical work..

    When you are working on a Document, and wish to SAVE it to DRAFTS...you select 'X'... and then are presented with two Options;
    DELETE DRAFT (RED) or SAVE DRAFT (BLUE)....

    These BUTTONS are far too close together for comfort; if one is 'Tired' or not concentrating, using iPad in aircraft with Turbulence or simply inadvertently...it is FAR TOO EASY to select the INCORRECT button! A…
