  1. Simplify Email Filing

    Filing of emails became harder in 365 over standard Outlook App. Use AI to recommend folders based on email addresses or subject and allow a toggle to last 10 most recently used. Both without ever leaving mail.

  2. Include the Categorize Feature in the mobile app.

    I use the colour coded categories to make sure I don’t miss orders. Please add this feature to the mobile app so that I can keep organised from my phone instead of having to go back and mark everything on my work computer at the end of the day.

  3. Remember (un)selected calendars

    Having several mailboxes configured in Outlook iOS, the selection of visible calendars is reset regularly resulting in all calendars made visible.
    I don't want to see 4 times a holiday calendar (1 in each mailbox) and all people calendars I have added for use in Outllok on laptop.

  9. 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”?

  10. 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.

  12. I don’t want to see a banner pop up telling me to sign into my other email account.

    I don’t need to be promoted to sign into another account. I choose to ignore another account for reasons. The banner takes up space on the screen & currently there’s no way to dismiss the prompt. Very annoying.

    When pulling down the weeks and then scrolling in the agenda the weeks should stay down and not be automatically pulled up again

  14. Me and my 500 plus co workers are over the continual getting locked out due to the password issue.

    Eliminate the need to change password. Also we don’t get notifications that password is expiring. Therefore we get locked out. Once again over 500 of my coworkers share this idea.

  15. 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!

  16. “Contact Support” doesn’t work

    I was told to use Outlook and have few issues with it but Contact Support feature NEVER worked for me. For the last two weeks it either shows spinner right away or allows me to select category and subcategory and then shows spinner with “We are still trying to reach support...” message. Restarting the app and the phone doesn’t help. This feature should be 100% reliable and there should be at least a support email address provided somewhere in the app in case that feature doesn’t work

  17. 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.

  18. Organized by Thread for Gmail

    Organized by Thread for Gmail accounts worked fine when the emails are in inbox, however, after it was Archived, the Thread will split into two Threads, one contains all mail sent (in Sent mailbox), another contains all mail received (in Archive mailbox).
    This is frustrating when it comes to re-read old conversations that were archived.

  20. 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.
