  1. Customization

    Please add some options for customization like font sizes. Overall the text is really big and uncomfortable at times.

    Also, ability to view all emails from a particular contact. This is very useful.

  2. Hey!

    Do you know that there is another team within Microsoft that has a similar program, Outlook for iPhone. If you'd work together on a single app, it would be just about perfect!

    Mobile workers want all their mail, calendars, and tasks on one place. Multiple accounts(exchange, IMAP, gmail ...), merged inbox. Merged calendars. Nobody want to hunt between apps to look at different inboxes!

    If Outlook iOS supported Shared Mailbox, and send from selected Connected accounts, I'd use that. But they don't.

    Instead, I use two email apps from Microsoft in bewilderment of how apps in large corporations just reflect…

  3. Search All Folders Option

    I have a number of Rules setup to divert incoming mail to specified folders. Sometimes it's difficult to find messages that may have been moved to one of those folders or is linked to a Conversation chain. Search also seems to be impacted by whether the message has Read or Unread.

    The Outlook Desktop Application allows the user to specify whether to search the Search Current Folder or Search All Folders. That option would be useful in the mobile Apps.

  4. Automatic Replies

    When posting automatic replied from OWA for iPhone, it never keeps the formatting. I'm unable to tell how it is being sent to others, however, in the space provided, hitting the 'Done' button erases any format that was entered. If what is shown is being sent, it makes me look unprofessional & the phone should have a seamless and comparable experience to the MS Outlook program for Win.

  7. Send from options

    I see that I can show the from field, but I don't see my aliases listed as options when I tap on the field. Also missing: accounts where I have "Send as" permissions.

  9. Shouldn't require my company to have 365 for me to use the new app

    My company is extremely far behind on technology, but I purchased office 365 myself. I shouldn't be stopped from using the newest app just because my company takes forever to update software.

  13. Continuous syncing offline

    EVERY time I use the app now, I get a message saying that the app is syncing to work offline and will take a few minutes. However, once it finishes, it said it had already been setup to work offline. It's super annoying and am seriously considering deleting the app until this is fixed.

  18. Delete all

    I've notice I was only able to remove like 5-7 mails that was on my screen on iPhone. And it was annoying to have to press three buttons just to remove that many mails. I think we need a delete all button.

  19. Archive email

    I should be able to archive email with a single button press (just like deleting a message..you just tap on the trash can icon). Instead I have to click move, scroll to the archive folder, select the archive folder, and then press the move button.
