  2. Sign out

    It’d really good to be able to ‘sign out’ or ‘log off’ after using this app. Just for security reasons & because oftentimes people will be using this app on mobile phones.

    This feature was available before the latest update.

  3. Group email

    It is too cumbersome to input every email address for a specific group.

    Please include a group email feature.

  5. Mark Unread From Here

    Similar to Gmail's "mark unread from here" so that the "unread email" count is accurate.

  6. Categories on iOS

    I use at least 13 different categories for my super-complicated schedule, and since the iOS app clips text on calendar events I rely on categories to quickly know which type of event I’m looking at. As it is now, I have to tap on each event to see what it’s about. On the Mac Outlook app, categories work great, and my admin puts in time making sure events are categorized properly. However, I’m usually not in front of my laptop, and so would greatly benefit from seeing categories on the iOS app and the Watch app.

  8. Most recent email at the top of email chain

    Currently when you go though an email chain the oldest email stays at the top and you have to scroll down to see the most recent email. Very annoying when trying to review previous emails in the chain.
    It would be great if you had an option to reverse this so that the newest email was always at the top of your email chain.

  9. Search, “select all”, delete

    Would love to be able to do a search for specific emails from the same source or with the same subject, “select all” within the search, and then delete everything in that search with one click.

  12. Ability to mark as urgent, read and delivery receipts

    It would be Fantastic if we could use the urgent option when sending an email. Also if we could use the read receipt and delivery receipt option when sending certain emails.

  13. 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.

  17. Encryption and Recall Sent Emails

    I would have switched to another email, but my business is tied to my onmicrosoft account.
    I would greatly appreciate if I could send encrypted emails and recall sent emails due to the nature of my business.

  18. Classic look

    Please bring back the old look of Outlook! The Inbox bar is way too thick and blue. The slider button for focused and other is too round and puffy.

    I like the simple, clean and professional look of the previous look.

  19. 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.

  20. 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)
