It’s a cool feature, but it doesn’t need to be sticky. Have it hide when you scroll down and the appear when you scroll up. Easy peesy.
It’s almost 2019. We’ve got the technology to load a full email in place. The technical limitations are easily surpassable. This method of requiring the user to tap a button to load the rest of an email in a full new modal window is a little silly and just seems lazy from an engineering stand point.
We highly appreciate your feedback and for voting on this feature. Good news: we are working on it! Thanks for your patience and stay tuned. We’ll provide an update once we get closer to release.
All the best

Dear Outlook devs, please compile the app with Xcode 10, this will likely fix this issue for you for free. 😎
Please allow me to “always allow” images from specific emails/domains. I appreciate the option to block external images, but it can be a little exhausting always tapping “allow” for all my daily “approved” emails.
The fact that it loses your spot is what truly makes this terrible.
There is no technical limitation on why they would need to push to another view for non-truncated email. When the user gets close to the truncation break, reload with the full email, no loss of scroll offset. Any junior iOS developer would be capable of implementing this without much trouble.
When I read a longer email, such as a digest or collection of small stories, eventually I reach a premature end to the email with a "Read More" button. That loads the full email but bumps me back to the top, losing my spot.
1) Just show the whole email. Tell the app developers to lazy load the "read more" section as you are getting close. It's not hard.
2) Just save my spot and set the content offset for me once the read more view is presented.
That button wastes so much space if you don't use it. Please give us the option to remove it, or move it to the top bar.
It takes up so much wasted space, and at least for me, it's the least useful button on the screen. It could even live on the top bar. Or ideally toggled OFF in the settings
This really bugs me. All they need to do is move the little lightning bolt to the top bar and we save all that wasted white space.
