  1. Play My Email for non-US regions

    The Play My Email feature is limited to devices registered in the US-Region only which is a very myopic view point on Outlook app usage given how many global companies are leveraging O365.

    It would be a great win to expand this capability at least initially to devices leveraging English as the device language.

  2. Have option to sync more than 1 month

    Team,

    Is it possible to have option to download / sync the inbox beyond 1 month (~6 mo or 1 yr) so I can search more quickly or go through offline emails instead of constantly pressing “load more”?

  4. Ability to hide message previews

    Forcing us to view message previews in a folder takes away from valuable smart phone screen real estate. Please give us the option to enable or disable message previews in all folders, especially the inbox.

  5. Option to not automatically mark item read

    If I am on an email and perform some action on it (move, delete, etc) and the pointer moves to the next email which happens to be unread, that new selected email is marked as read. For now I have to swipe to mark as Unread because I don’t want to process/read it yet.

  10. View in Light Mode

    There needs to be a per email option to view individual emails in light mode, when a user has dark mode enabled. Some emails have attachment formatting which results in black text on the black dark mode background. To view these few emails, a user needs to leave the email, go to settings, enable light mode, go back to the email, read and take care of the email, then go through all those steps again to reenable dark mode. Gmail for iOS has already implemented this feature to great success.

  12. Better Spam Block

    Currently, one can block a spam e-mail but they still come back through and in addition, so many repeated and or similar spam headers consistently find their way through.

    It is becoming somewhat relentless and am unhappy as have never contacted these companies of which us concerning in how they got hold of my e-mail. Especially, quite a few are phishing e-mails!

  14. Play my emails for school accounts

    Please make this important feature available for school accounts. It is perplexing why these accounts are excluded. Thank you!

  16. One line view - only subject & sender

    Like on desktop, can you please give us option to have a one line view so the inbox is neat and tidy. It would be nice to have option not to see the first line of body.
    Thanks,
    Ajay

  17. Apply same rules as desktop app

    I set rules in outlook on my PC (for example email notifications to move to a particular folder). When I check my emails from the mobile app, the rules I have created don’t apply until I log in from my PC. I would like all rules I created from desktop app to apply on the mobile app automatically.

  18. Notifications during “Work Hours”

    Allow users to set “work hours” or “work days” during which to receive notifications of new mail or events.

    For example, a user could set “work hours” of 7-5pm M-F and would only receive notifications during those times. All mail or events received outside of those hours would result in a notification only when “work hours” resumed.
