    It is more likely that kiosk and/or deskless users with smaller mailbox sizes will only ever use Outlook on the web or the Outlook mobile app rather than the Outlook desktop app.

    Yet for some reason, the Outlook on the web and mobile apps offer very little functionality to help manage storage space whilst the Outlook desktop app has a myriad of useful tools for this (see list below). These tools would if anything be more useful if available on the mobile app and on the web versions of Outlook.

    - REMOVE ATTACHMENTS FROM EMAILS: In the Outlook Desktop App, you can remove an attachment from an email whilst still retaining the email message which. This cannot be done on either the Outlook for the web or the mobile app.

    - SEARCH FOLDERS: In the Outlook Desktop App, you can create a folder with emails from the whole mailbox (all folders and subfolders) which arranges them all by size with the largest on top, making it easy to either delete emails or remove attachments.

    - RESIZING LARGE IMAGES: In the Outlook Desktop App when you compose a new email and attach an image (JPEG, PNG, etc) at the press of a button, you can make outlook automatically reduce the file size when it is sent which avoids large files residing in your Sent Items folder and also means the recipient is more likely to keep the email with attachments since it doesn't make as big an impact on their storage limits. This can't be done from within the Outlook for the web or mobile apps. Worse still, on the mobile app and from a mobile device, it seems to favour embedding large full res photos into the body of an email meaning the recipient cannot then remove it like they can an attachment without forwarding it back to themselves and deleting or resizing the image from within the body section.

    Add the Search Folders functionality that we have in the Outlook desktop app to Outlook on the web so that we can do things like arrange emails from all folders and subfolders by size to help delete large attachments that are clogging up limited storage space.

    In the Outlook Desktop App, it is possible to automatically resize any images that are attached to an email that is being composed to reduce the size of the email that is being sent.

    Outlook on the Web should have the same functionality to help users to better manage their mailbox storage limits.
