  1. Search is still TERRIBLE

    You should be able to search To:, From:, Subject:, etc. just like the desktop version.

  2. Search with attachements

    Please revert searching emails with attachments to a 1 step process. Currently it needs to select from search option to select attachements

  4. Having an advanced search filter

    There are some filters already in place, but being able to narrow down multiple advanced search criteria such as with or without attachments, who the email was from, who it was to, etc. all in one place would be mighty helpful! Entering the criteria into the search bar seems to yield limited results.

  5. Advanced Search Missing

    I like how the search in the new Outlook has been placed on the top, and how some of the advanced options like hasattachments: true are available from a dialog box. However, I use the from: [name] AND subject: [subject] search features regularly and this doesn't seem to be possible anymore in the new search bar. It's okay if you want to add these options to the dialog box; just don't remove them entirely!

  7. Can we make the email preview optional? Sometimes the subject lines aren't too descriptive.

    Can we make the email preview optional? Sometimes the subject lines aren't too descriptive. If I have a pinned email, I need to know what the contents are.

  8. Searching the old emails in the old system was easier

    In the old look, I could go back to very old emails quickly. In the new one, I can't. Takes hours!!

  10. Search function for Contacts

    I am not able to pull up a searched contact with the new outlook format. I have to go back to the old format and even at that, the only way I can see the info is if I tell it to Edit it...

  12. search and find needs improving

    Search fails to open the email it has found! A list appears with yellow highlight of search keywords, but when you click the email it opens another email. The original email was sent in a mass broadcast and the search is for a reply from one person in the broadcast. When selecting the search found item it opens a chain of emails relating to the broadcast but the one I need is not visible. This is a basic need and a bug in Outlook.

  14. Better Search Capabilities

    Can we have more filters, where we can specify multiple filters simultaneously and not only restricted to 1 or 2 filters? So we should have filters like the sender, receiver, subject, body, has attachments, etc. and we use whichever combination of those to help us search quicker and more accurate.

  16. Search Filter: Has Attachements

  17. Please bring back the HELP search bar!

    The search bar in the "?" menu was super-helpful in the old version. I could find quick links to everything I needed there, quickly and easily. It is the biggest reason I'm switching back to the old version.

  18. Contact card in search tips

    In the old version, in the search box, I could type the name of a contact and quickly click on his contact card from the search tips.

    Now I have to perform the actual search and then click on the name of the contact to make the contact card appear.

  19. searching email is very difficult

    Searching some e-mail is very difficult. Especially when we do not know about some person's e-mail and we have only their name, its not working.

    It should show with date (i.e. 09-Feb-2019) but only time and day is appearing.

    Sometimes delay in sending e-mail is not working even though it is already set.

    Even if I already red the e-mail, still it is appearing as unread. Sometimes, vice versa also.

  20. Search Suggestions/Autofill Is Inconsistent

    The suggested/autofill for search doesn't seem to consistently work - it sometimes doesn't return autofill/suggestions as you start typing (or will only present suggested searches after you conduct a keyword search and click into the search box again) but sometimes does and when you start typing a contact it doesn't always return a search for messages from that sender.
