    search feature that's intuitive, i.e. it considerswhat you've done & are doing & offers options that are logical & rational, and doesn't keep offering the results I've declined multiple times

    current search still looks everywhere to satisfy the search. I am never searching my contacts, I'm searching for a keyword in an email. but contacts are always searched and lead the order returned. I don't have everyone in my outlook contacts because I rarely email contacts anymore. email is service-based communication, usually w/ a functionary account alias. so my searches are usually keywords intending to bypass the 500 gigs of spam in my inbox to find the 6 old emails and 1 new email from the business, which I missed due to the 200 megs of spam I received in the week prior. I'm a 365 subscriber and have been for years, and have been current with every gen of office '97. some will disagree, but I've always felt office tried to work the line between individual flexibility/enterprise standardization, and I believe, with rare exceptions, that the office team has accomplished that well. which is why I don't understand the development path of this web app in particular. it doesn't move toward individual flexibility nor corporate standardization, it moves towards MS making decisions for me: how to search, what is most relevant in my search, which emails are important, which should be ignored, which I won't see at all, etc. and if there is a way to modify or stop these determinations, it's buried in a menu somewhere only accessible online. apologies for the rant, but this search is has been a burr for awhile.

    replying to an email in the mobile app has become a chore, but why is it all but impossible to apply basic formatting? if I cut & paste my default format is changed to whatever was pasted. if this happens several times, it looks like Alf barfed on the email. but when I took around the controls available to me here I see nothing that applies formatting.

    it's very annoying to receive images as embedded in the body of the email versus file attachment. trying to save the images w/o benefit of 'save attachment' option, I must go through multiple steps to cut/copy & paste into some application to simply save a file. I'm sure I'm missing a simpler method, but it's not obvious to me as an option when trying to save images. what is more frustrating is not being able to independently control the function when sending images via outlook phone app.
