Smart Folder / Saved search on web app for Outlook 365
"Smart folders" on web application for Outlook 365 would be a nice feature to have!

I mostly use multiple Search folders to archive processed email into different archive folders via actions.
Web Outlook does not support Actions, and does not support Search Folders (it used too, according to help).
At least please support Search folders.
Yes we need this!

My company just converted to Outlook from Google and I'm stunned I can't bundle my starred emails into a folder on Web. This is 2019...let's go!
I can't believe this feater has been requested almost 4 years ago, and no-one has taken notice... Microsoft; it is unacceptable to 'lose' features with 'upgrades' to the cloud platforms like this.
I just setup my folders and rules. I will be doing 100% access via web. I could not figure out how to have saved search folder so found my way here. What is going on? Standard basic 101 functionality. Do I have to delete all my rules now to see my new email?
Poke. Make OWA a full citizen, please. it's about to be 2019.

Amen to that
Please. Otherwise, it is useless with Rules separating mail into folders. Babymail, not real mail
I was surprised this feature doesn't exist in outlook web app.

It would be very, very, very helpful to be able to have "saved searches", a feature we've had for quite some time in client-based Outlook. If I remember correctly, you could even turn these saved searches into a "Smart Mailbox"? I'm sorely missing that feature in Office 365-Outlook.
As a user, I search for messages matching common criteria, repeatedly. I may search for every message from my manager, every message from a specific user, every message sent to a group alias. I may re-run these same searches many times a day. I'd like to be able to save these search conditions, and have them available quickly on the left-navigation menu.
Similar to the way that I can click on "Inbox" or "Sent", it would be very convenient to have a section, "Saved Searches", with all of my saved -- and perhaps even most recently, or most often, executed -- searches.

I just have a regular Outlook.com account, and I'd love to be able to use my "All Mail" smart folder on my desktop client when I'm using the web client or am on my phone.
