Search and move: I need to be able to select multiple emails from a search result and move them to an exchange folder.
Threads: unable to thread with SMIME enabled. Even if you can’t successfully thread an encrypted chain, let everything else thread to make reading email easier. Or thread by recent subjects where headers cannot be read. (More on this next)
Also on threads: MaaS360 threaded by subject and make it so easy to group hourly system alerts together so I can see them all in one. Outlook fills up my inbox full of alerts spread out and makes it very difficult to find or see regular email among the noise. And since I cannot select them all from a search result, I cannot sweep them away after review like I can with MaaS360.
While I don’t like MaaS360 email overall, it definitely has advantages over Outlook Mobile with regards to how it threads email subjects together and being able to move groups of email from a search result. Please improve these features to make accessing and moving large volumes of email easier for us system administrators who get tons of email every day.
Powerful email software. No real major issues except for one minor inconvenience. All other email programs, and a lot of other retail programs, have a feature which is mainly in the INBOX where if you want to delete an email/message, you swipe left and the selection is either deleted or the DELETE prompt is available. Now I do understand that everyone wants their product to be different. And I understand the function of the ARCHIVE. But for the sake of the user, who is already unconsciously trained to swipe left if we desire to delete a text/email/message, whatever……. it would be refreshing to see companies just “go with the flow” and make the delete function assimilation with us in mind, and put the archive selection somewhere else. Statistically, we use delete far more then archive. I got it; you want to be different. Hats off to you. But do you have to be so different that it can be irritating ?? That is a real thing.
Outlook app will not work on my iPhone 11 Pro with the latest iOS and Outlook app version. I have AT&T as my network provider and have an unlimited data plan. If
I am off WiFi, Outlook says “No Internet Connection” via grey banner at the bottom of the application and I am unable to receive and send emails in this state.
Signing out, restarting my iPhone, deleting and re-adding both my account and app are giving me the same results: unable to send and receive emails.
This has to be an Outlook application issue as all of my other apps are working as expected off of WiFi and on my carrier’s network. I could not see how this is an AT&T-side error considering the above.
Please help as Outlook/M365 is fairly useless to me right now and I am unable to work.
I very much like the focused mailbox concept on Outlook. I am disappointed with the Junk, Spam filtering capabilities of Outlook, especially when compared to Gmail. For example, I am regularly get phsing emails in my focused mailbox which I meticulously mark them as Junk or Spam after reviewing the senders addresses. I wish Microsoft’s algorithm learned to filter out the clearly invalid email address, send to bulk customers on their servers. On the other hand I regularly find legitimate email from valid email address which is not bulk spam being send to Junk folder.
Since the last update, too many times when I write an email, I get an error message:
Cannot Send Email
Recipient John Doe cannot be saved to draft. Please contact support.
Continue or undo are the options.
Oddly, deleting the receiver will allow it to save to drafts. Go to drafts, the receiver is still in place, and it sends. A rather annoying process!
‘John Doe’ is the “inserted contact email addressee’s name” selected from contacts, and each time this occurs, it is someone I’ve emailed multiple times in the past, using the same method.
Handling file attachments for mobile email just got a lot easier. When you tap the Files icon at the bottom of the app, it will display recent file attachments in your email -- separated by email account. You can tap the file to send it as an attachment in a new message, save it to your mobile device, or share it with others. The OWA app for iOS already included the associated Outlook calendar, but this is a vast improvement. The calendar is easier to access and work with, and it's integrated directly into the mobile email experience.
I am highly disappointed in the email conversation search. I have had several emails that I have replied to or forwarded. When I attempt to search on the original email, the last action performed comes up. As I drill down through all activities, I cannot locate the initial email. I have also found it challenging to identify and open attachments. I also do not understand why the app doesn't open links using the default browser. This is a headache, inefficient, and unnecessary. Stop controlling people's capabilities with their devices.
The AI is genuinely horrible and massively confusing. But it doesn’t matter because no one chooses outlook on purpose. It’s always your work or school that makes you get this horrid app. The app quits every time you navigate away for more than a few seconds!!!! I’ll be typing an email and then I go to check my calendar on my phone and by the time I’m back the app has to reload and I need to scroll down and find the thread again. Pinning messages doesn’t work in the app. And important messages are very easily buried. Horrible.
keeps trying to automatically save what you’re writing as a draft by MINIMIZING THE EMAIL YOURE CURRENTLY WRITING only to tell you that it couldn’t even save the draft.
Here’s an idea, Microsoft, DONT DO THAT YOU STUPID DONKEYS. Whoever thought interfering with writing every 3 seconds was a good idea needs to be fIred ASAP
And don’t even start me on how worthless outlook search is (want to know why people don’t use bing? It’s because microsoft has yet to make a useful search feature)
Previous update broke the banner…randomly it might show email count for a moment. But now latest update causes random errors such as unable to send message, unable to save draft, unable to send recipient back to back.
I would NEVER use this app if my company didn’t force it. I have a feeling this is why the experience is so poor, they know people don’t have a choice. Take some notes from the native iPhone Mail app…much easier to use, less clutter, and works perfectly every time.
