    It should be possible to synchronize/download all emails in the inbox. Noe you only sync 1000, but it should be possible to configure how much to sync.

    I think this lack of functionality is very bad, and I really hope that you will fin this.

    I have reisedøgn this issue before, without any answer or solution plans.

    As a Premium user I really think this functionality should have been a part of Outlook.

    In general all folders should be alle tonfully download/synchronize.

    Hello. In some other email apps it is possible to configure how many emails to sync - based upon how old or how large +++, and some support to configure how many emails to automatically sync, I.e. 10, 50, 100, 500, 1000 and total/all emails.

    I really hope that the Outlook app will get this support.

    Now I every day suffer from this lack of support.

    Below you can see my last email to Outlook Support and their last answer on the issue.

    Hello. OK, now I know how the outlook app works and is configured. When I have performed a lot of “Load more messages” to have and see all emails in my Inbox they will be there until the app automatically performs a new sync. How often does the app perform syncing? In my opinion it should be user configurable to decide how many emails to synchronize - and total/all should be one of the options. Some other email apps has this functionality and I really miss this option in the outlook app. I really hope that you can consider to implement it. When Microsoft makes this kind of regulation and lack of functionality which indeed forces me to consider using another app from other vendors the situation is not good. After all the app needs to be user friendly and it is not with this limitation!!! At work we use office 365 and I pay for a private office 365 home product as well to combine the use of all the magnificent office products including outlook on windows which of course has this functionality. Then it should be obvious that the outlook app should have this functionality as well. As mentioned I really hope and expect that you will implement this. Looking forward to some useful and positive answer and feedback. The Samsung mail app is one of the apps with this functionality onboard... Regards, Dagfinn

    Hello Dagfinn. Currently, the setting of how much email you want to sync in the app is a limitation.
    If you would like to suggest this functionality for future builds, you can by navigating to SETTINGS > Help & Feedback > Suggest a Feature. That way the developers know what our users are interested in. Thank you so much!
