  1. 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.

  2. 1 more vote for account reordering

    The most recent update reordered my account list and moved Outlook all the way to the bottom. I can’t move it back unless I delete the accounts above and re-add them. Allow for users to reorder their email account list.

  6. Contacts from Sub Contact Groups

    Currently, the iOS app only syncs contacts listed under the main “Contacts” option. I have a few other contact groupings such as Suppliers or Purchasing Agents in the Outlook PC application. This is great as it separates the contacts that I need for a given situation

    **It would be great if the app would include those contacts when syncing the contacts to the phone. I don’t need them to be separated out by their contact group as indicated above, I just need their contact info to be in my phone address book!

  7. Choosing which Badges to appear

    I have multple accounts that I’m managing in Outlook. I have badges set to inform me on how many new emails I have. I only want badges to appear for one of the accounts. How do I that?

  10. Choose time period to sync

    Please add an option to choose what time period of emails to sync, e.g. one month, six months, no limit. The search function is pretty useless when limited to 30 days or 1000 emails.

  11. Exchange - Shared Calendar Support

    It would really be beneficial to have Exchange shared calendar support.

    And despite Microsoft's push for Office 365, not every company has this for various reasons. This request is explicitly regarding on premise Exchange.

  12. 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.

  13. Be able to let iOS autofill passwords from keychain

    I am not able to use iOS autofill passwords from keychain when logging into my account since the login form does not detect the password field as filled and the log in button never activates. Same thing happens when password i pasted into the field.

  14. Toggle (On/Off): Message Text Preview

    Dear Support,

    When will the function to disable the “message text preview” be enabled.

    The current preview is wasting a lot of space.
