    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. :-)

  7. Search Bar Next to Filter Icon

    Search button is in an awkward place. Suggest making the space to the left of the filter button the default search entry.

  8. Send plaintext emails

    Currently there's no way (as far as I know) to send plaintext emails from Outlook for iOS. That would be a great feature to have so I could reply to mailing lists that only accept plaintext from my phone.

    Additionally, Outlook many times fails to show plaintext emails (they show up as blank in the thread view, and I need to click "show more" to see the text). Excessive line breaks are also inserted in the middle of these emails, making them hard to read.

  11. Ability to change email Sort Order Within Threads

    It would sure be nice to have the option to change the sort order in which the emails appear within the threads. I, for example, would like the most recent email to show up at the top of the list. Currently the most recent email is showing at the bottom.

  12. 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!

  17. Grammar check on business emails

    Dear Outlook Team,

    I have a common problem when drafting emails. Despite taking additional time to proofread emails, I often make silly mistakes where I leave out words or use incorrect grammar. Can you integrate grammar check and machine learning to improve my writing? Common issues ex: "thank you for taking the time to speak me and my colleagues." Notice that I should have said "speak with/to me"

    The MS Word team does a great job on this but I wish the same engine would power Outlook authoring.

  20. Add option for Sender name

    I have my gmail account set up to show HD Gibson Gmail as the sender but it doesn't use that when I am sending via Outlook. I changed the Description field but it didn't use that. Any chance?
