  1. User editable calendar keyword : icon mappings

    The new auto calendar icons don't work (are unwanted) for me and you need a setting to turn them off.

    Better would be an editable list of keywords and configurable associated icons.

  2. Cellular Data & Download Email

    There is no option to only use it with WiFi and if we want to use it with Cellular data, to not download all the attachments, or just show the Text, this consume a lot of data

  3. Remove the link to facebook contacts

    Please remove the link to facebook and all other weird and wonderful contacts options that you seem to have added to the Outlook desktop update. Some of us don't have facebook accounts and would like not to be faced with that pointless addition each time we try to use the desktop app.

    Thanks.

  5. Smart Folders

    I would like to request a feature where we can create smart folders like in other apps like spark and airmail in the sidebar. Basically saved searches that can be accessed immediately via the sidebar.

  6. Double tap to zoom in on emails

    Double tapping to zoom is much more efficient than pinch zoom, especially when using your phone with only one hand (and even more so for people who only have use of one hand). Please add this feature!

  7. Proxy server support

    When you use this app whilst connected to a WiFi network with a proxy server set, the app doesn't work and you get a "No internet connection" message... Though this feedback form works fine, which is even more ridiculous. That's just really stupid.

    Fix it.

  10. Different live tile per inbox

    I'm just migrating from Windows Phone to iOS. With Outlook I would appreciate a separate live tile per email address. I want a somewhat solid separation between the different email accounts.

  14. Send-Only Account

    Hello, i was wondering if you could allow send only accounts because i have email accounts for my enterprise which all have the same inbox but different send addresses. Therefore every email i get for my alias emails on GMX all go to the the multiple accounts on outlook. Then i end up receiving 4 emails for the account. A send only account would help to stop receiving so many with my aliases.

  15. Be able to see more than focused inbox on Apple Watch

    Even though focused inbox is disabled in the outlook app on iPhone, the aw only shows focused inbox.

    This is even worse when outlook is configured for multiple accounts.

  16. Read More -- View from last

    When clicking "Read more", the next screen should show where I last was in the email so I don't have to scroll so far down again. Not efficient. Thanks.
