  1. Share Mailbox in Outlook App

    Good day, on my account on the web I have associated a Shared Mailbox as added share folder, however, I cannot find that option in the app, it would be good if can be added.

  3. Show the date when scrolling down emails

    When scrolling back/down through emails in side panel it is unclear what the date is. Just showing the day of a the week is not helpful.

  5. Blocked contacts

    Once one user blocks a spam email contact the user should be blocked and their emails automatically blocked from sending to others and or should automatically be deleted if some are received before someone blocks them

  8. Log-out

    I’d use more if you had a log-out option ... to give me assurance that I am logged out, and to NOT log me out before I’m done (such as any time I minimize, get a call, etc.).

  9. 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.

  10. BCC

    PLEASE add ability to automatically BCC sender (yourself) for emails. This is a big feature that desktop Outlook has that’s missing here.

  12. Ability to have all messages in threads collapse

    The newest update shows all messages in a thread as open. I would like the option to collapse all expect he most recent message so I can more easily jump back to previous messages. (The way it used to be)

  14. Notes!

    Please implement Notes syncing and access with Outlook!

    This is a huge feature that’s not available.

  15. Please match the outlook app font with my desktop outlook font.

    Please match the outlook app font with my desktop outlook font. The differences in styles can look very unprofessional when responding.

  16. 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.

  18. Attach files from iCloud Drive

    Please add the option to add files from iCloud Drive, currently Dropbox, Google Drive and recent attachments are there but not iCloud which is frustrating.

  19. Confirm folder name when moving an email to a folder.

    To be sure that an email was moved to the correct folder it would be good if the folder name would be shown while copying the mail.
    Maybe the app could even suggest folders like the mail function of iOS does.

  20. 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
