Agree! Navigating to sub folders is way harder than it should be. Improve usability and expand mail boxes to show sub folders. Apple iOS email is a reasonable compromise - hint, hint...
I think the default of reply vs reply all should be based on who the message was being sent to. If sent to a few people, reply all might be the better default, if sent to an alias or a large group, then default to just reply.
Agree with the comments! Usability sucks with the outlook iOS app. Too many options are buried under sub menus instead of having easy to access icons/options at the top level
Why is the subject line truncated from the web page title when sending a link via outlook? Look at iOS Mail from apple and see that they don't cut off the subject line. Unless there is a technical limitation with outlook, keep the subject like as-is!
I see this behavior when sharing a link from another app and specifying Outlook as the target app to use.

Notice the difference?
Currently, the only buttons shown on an iPad for message tasks are delete and archive, and there is a more button that shows other tasks like print, move, etc, but there is a whole lot of white space to the left of the buttons that is not being used for anything. To perform tasks such as move or print, the user has to do two steps to compete the task (open the more menu, then select the task), when having a button/icon would reduce the number of operations by 50% and make the user more productive. Burying these common tasks makes no sense...
If I accidentally move a message to archive by taping the archive button, then go to the archive folder, there is no way to "undo" the operation and unarchive the message - in the archive folder, the "archive" button is greyed out. However, there is a move operation that I can perform to move the message back to the inbox. If I need to move the message back this way, why would I want to archive the message in the first place instead of just moving it to the archive folder? Ok, ok, archive is one button, but hopefully you get my point. From a app UI/operation consistency, this is broken...
Steps to repro:
- open archive folder
- press and hold a message to bring up "select all" option
- select all messages
- perform a "move" operation
Only the first message is moved to the desired folder.
This is broken. If the user has multiple messages selected, then the operation should be performed on the selected messages.
Why do you display graphics in messages that are in the junk mail folder? It should be handled the same way as outlook.com and have the option (or by default) to not display any graphics from links or attachments from a message opened from in the junk mail folder, otherwise the spammers just validated that the email address is correct...
Currently, if there are unread messages in the Other inbox, there is no way to know this unless the user explicitly taps on the Other inbox to open it, same goes for the Focused inbox.
As a feature suggestion, it would be great if the Focused and Other names were shown in bold or with the blue dot to indicate that there are unread messages. This would make the Outlook app more usable...
