  1. Sort by categories

    I use categories to set email as "WIP", "To Do", "Done", etc.
    If I can't sort by those categories this is simply useless for me.
    Outlook is a professional app. Please make full-function.

  2. iPhone Search Results Should Include All Message in Conversation View

    In OWA for iPhone if you have the email view set to Conversation View and then you search your email, the search results only include the most recent email in a conversation rather than all emails that include the search term. The search results need to either include all emails individually, or group them by conversation with a way to expand them like you have in the non-search view. If you have your email sorted by Date Received, you will see all of the emails - it is only Conversation View that is hiding relevant messages...

  7. Email Vacuum

    So what I just realized when comparing how my email account looks on outlook 2013 and on this application is that emails appear here that do not appear in my outlook. For that reason I am forced to remove my a account from this app and remove the app from my iPhone due to a decrease in productivity.

  12. Forward email attachments

    Allow user to forward (via a new email) an attachment(s) from a received email.

    Sometimes, it's helpful to send an attachment to a new recipient without including the text, etc from the email received. I incision this as a "press-and-hold" feature where the user press the attachment icon, waits for it to download, then presses and holds. that would bring up the "Open in" option list. One of the options would be Forward in new email.

    I use the categories feature a lot. Would be nice to be able to change it from the app on demand. It to do to done.

  15. Automatic sign out

    The app automatically logs me out after every session. Because my company is very secure, I have to manually input everything again once it closes out, like I'm setting it up new for the first time. Very annoying.

  18. Mark all as read from folder view

    Would like a one touch 'Mark All as Read' feature when in the Folders view so I can highlight a particular folder with multiple unread emails and mark them all as read without having to go into the folder and swipe select the messages. Similar to how you can right click on a folder in outlook and mark all the emails in that folder as read. Thanks.
