Worst email service. 1/5
The only email service where you can’t block people. No option to block anywhere. What a ghetto service. Yahoo email is even better.
Outlook eMail 5/5
Easy setup for multiple accounts, spell check and Focused mail.
Ghost notification 3/5
By picked an apple
Intermittently keeps showing a notification for emails that are not there. For example it will show a notification of one unread message on the home screen icon and then when you open the app there’s nothing there.
Emails staying in outbox 1/5
I don’t know what’s going on. But every time I send an email it either stays in outbox and never sends or takes HOURS to send. Completely ridiculous and happens everywhere I go so it’s not an internet issue
No Notifications for folder 1/5
By Spiegal's Dad
Add an option of getting notifications for folder or group similar mail from same id in a single mail thread as gmail does for 100 mails from the same thread.. this is so frustrating that emails are not grouped and if you put them in folder there is no option of turning on notifications in ios
So so 4/5
By scruffy review
I don’t like how the app doesn’t let you file to a specific folder.
best application 4/5
By yazeed aloqaily
but lag and when i open applications it’s slowly we need improvement
Terrible search 1/5
Not possible to search a folder. All or nothing
No drag and drop? 2/5
Maybe I’m missing something here, but as far as I can tell Outlook does not allow dragging and dropping of files with either the Files app or Google Drive in split-view. The focus/other view is not well implemented, and often made seeing email harder rather than easier (although not being able to see an email is I guess a form of dealing with your inbox overload). There is an email filing integration with another web app I use that is available on the desktop version that is awesome, but unfortunately it appears that integration isn’t available on the ipad and ios versions (not Microsoft’s fault, it’s a third party integration, but really disappointing nonetheless). In the absence of a unique feature (i.e. some integration only available with Outlook) the other third party mail apps such as Spark or just the stock Apple mail app seem like much better choices for ipad and ios. I’m not sure why this app gets the overwhelmingly positive reviews both here and by tech reviewers online as it doesn’t really seem to be anything special and appears to be missing some core ipad and ios features, although again maybe i’m just missing something.
Issue with gmail 1/5
It won’t sync to my gmail. My emails aren’t loading.
Keyboard keeps disappearing 2/5
It’s become incredibly difficult to write an email in the app because the keyboard keeps minimizing in the middle of usage.
Please fix the glitch where filtered inboxes DO NOT make notifications. It is very annoying and inefficient. Especially since these problems don’t occur for the desktop app. I’m continually having to remember to check my work email every 5 minutes simply because my filtered inboxes are always delivered silently. Please fix this ASAP.
Can’t compose an email 1/5
Trying to compose an email is frustrating. It saves to draft every time I begin to start typing. Forget the features and just do what it should.
Contact and weekend numbers 4/5
By j.b. @ the top
Hi. The app works well but I miss the week numbers in calendar and a icon for contacts.
Great email app 5/5
It does a great job giving me the Focused mailbox. It has automatically become my favorite app. Using it with office 365 has become my goto tool on the iPhone.
Slow, lags, Microsoft refuses to address complaints 1/5
Forums everywhere with multiple detailed accounts of users having such significant delays and lags that the app is essentially useless, yet Microsoft refuses to address the issues. I refuse to believe this high average app rating is legitimate, as this app is virtually unusable. PS, I work for a publicly traded software company...neither I nor my phone are the issue.
Only works in focus mode 3/5
When I select other mode it does not display any recent emails. The last email is about six weeks old.
Way better than the stock apple iOS mail app 5/5
Have used it for a day only and I still need to find out a lot about this app but so far it is such a way more enjoyable experience to check the mail. I love how at the top of your emails it shows the next event on your calendar
Notifications issue 3/5
Since the New IOS updated email notifications aren’t working. I have gone through every single aspect of step from online, youtube, still i am not successful. On my IPad i am still using the old IOS and email notifications working perfectly.So Please fix it if you see these error from others.
Three Exchange boxes causes app to crash 1/5
If you have three Exchange mailboxes, this app just crashes.
Microsoft still can’t get it through its head that most people have more than one Exchange mailbox. I have 7.
All I want is to see ALL MY MAIL but this app refuses by making different inboxes by itself I’m that I don’t want and I can’t disconnect my other email accounts from the app. Get it to together Microsoft
Ugly bug in this latest release 3/5
I like this app, but Microsoft has some pretty weak QA and often releases updates with serious bugs. The latest is that when I share via my browser or any other app to Outlook, it removes the URL from the email! Talk about a critical piece to get right. ☹️
Still many limitations such as not being able to display long emails, and resetting my reading position on a long email when I switch away and back to Outlook.
Keep working on it Microsoft!
Almost perfect 4/5
Best multi-address mail app; occasional delays between emails being read and badge count on home screen can be frustrating at times. Falls behind in that area, but only intermittently
Things to fix 3/5
1) why do we have school through the list of folders?
2) searching for keywords doesn’t work 100% of the time. Can you fix it to do a better job of searching for keywords?
It’s alright 3/5
Minus one star for no support for Gmail labels, minus one star for poor synching to the Watch version of Outlook. Otherwise, it’s a pretty good app.
Duplicate Notifications 2/5
I used to love the outlook app because it let me easily go between different accounts. But for a while now I keep getting two push notifications for the same email. I’ve looked this up and many others have the same issue, and there isn’t a fix.
false five star rating 1/5
Some emails that were sent on the desktop dont appear on the mobile app. Creates dangerous confusion in the corporate chain of e-mails.
Flagged emails on the app dont appear as flagged when you go back to desktop client.
Complicated to navigate chain emails on the app, many replies hide behind “...” tiny button.
Convenient and powerful 5/5
I love that you can default to opening links in chrome and Google maps!! Now if apple would just get the hint...
Always says “Updating”. 4/5
By unhappy user 345
Good app but after the last update, it always has “Updating” at the bottom of every window. I had to uninstall it and download it again, then sent up all of my email accounts and cloud accounts again as well.
Also, I know it is Google’s fault for this, but I wish gmail could be pushed...
Other than that, it is a good email client. Would be 5 stars if not for having to go through all of that just to update it.
Please add finger id 4/5
Please add finger id
App is good but so slow and choppy 2/5
It hangs for about 30 seconds over and over. Eventually it smooths out. Sometimes it crashes instead of smoothing out. When it works, it’s great. I’m an iPhone user.
Always have to sign in 1/5
Not sure what happened but now I have to sign into my accounts when I have to check both email accounts. Was working fine at first. I have an iPhone and can’t figure out what’s wrong so please fix this app.
Support for Ofc365 Outlook is TERRIBLE 1/5
If you are unlucky enough to subscribe to Office 365 Personal edition and rely on any support for Outlook, it is only available via email CHAT. The support there is horrendous. You go round and round with people who do not read what your write and suggest the same non-applicable solutions over and over again.
This reminds me of the early days of Comcast. It was so bad it was laughable. Fortunately Xfinigy has gotten with the program and now offers outstanding customer support.
MICROSOFT? You need a serious competitor. Your support for Outlook mobile is AWFUL.
Desktop support is way better.
In the PC version of Outlook, there is a button for accessing contacts/people in our “phone book”. But in the Outlook App, no such easy way to bring them up.. Plenty of space at bottom of App screen, so give us a button for this, if you want to make it analogous to a full function Outlook PC App.How long has the Outlook App been live without this basic feature?
Unread Message Count Always Wrong 2/5
Have used this app since 1st published. Every version has had somewhat minor but annoying bugs that seem to last forever.
Right now, new message inidicator is always wrong and always overstates new messages.
Why they make it hard to attached ICloud files 1/5
I’m not happy with the attachment function as it keep most requests files pertaining Microsoft only and not file that is recently saved under iCloud. To attached a file from iCloud i need to go into many extra steps as Microsoft is promoting its own storage business on Ipad.... Shame!
Cut down version of Outlook for pc 3/5
By manifest viewer
First of all, the update said there would be a feedback and request option in settings. I looked all over and could not find such.
I tried this because I liked the filter by string options that outlook for pc has. Well this app does not have that, so it probably will be deleted as no better than other mail programs.
I want the letter string filter for deleting mail automatically.
I’ve been using outlook forever. It’s the best. I don’t even have to explain. Get it
NOT secure 2/5
Allowed hacker to add fraudulent email addresses.
Constantly Requiring Sign-In 1/5
By Krystle Bell
This app used to work great.....but now, I do not get any alerts and every time I check the app for my mail it makes me sign in AGAIN! This is beyond annoying and I’m so tired of it! Please fix this issue or I’m just going to DELETE the app because it’s useless!
AMAZING!!! 👍👍👍👍👍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 5/5
THIS IS THE BEST APP YOU WILL EVER HAVE! GET OT WHILE YOU CAN!
Cannot even open the app 1/5
After the most recent update, I can’t even open the app. It always opens up to the inbox page then frozen! How disappointing!
Terrible email Search results 1/5
What is the point of having a search option that only brings up 10-15 results and no way of loading any additional results?
If you want to search someone’s name for emails they sent you, you will NOT get any results older than 2 weeks. REALLY?
I thought this was a professional business email platform. How on earth does this make sense. Every time I have to search emails I have no choice but to work off my computer to get results. What a joke.
Note: Yes, I did load email conversations for two months on the app and still only get search results for 10 days. This should of been addressed a long time ago, it’s not like this app is new.
Love outlook app 4/5
The only complaint I have is I’m having to reset my accounts frequently. My desk top app works flawlessly but iPhone is glitchy. It wouldn’t be an issue if it were not handling my company emails.
Must uninstall and reinstall once a month! 2/5
I’ve given up on this app. When it works it works well.. but.. about once a month the app just stops updating the mail folders. Notifications keep coming in about my emails but the stupid app just spins it stupid wheel and never updates. Never mind resetting the app because that’s futile. Only uninstalling and reinstalling works..garbage. No issues whatsoever with my android phone. I’ve given it several months but it keeps doing it, even after several updates of iPad and app.
A major function has stopped working after the latest iOS update 1/5
When attempt to share a website page from Safari, Outlook no longer is converting that page to a link. It only has the name of the website that is NOT hyperlinked. This needs to be fixed ASAP!
Aspirational, but ultimately disappointing 1/5
I’ve been using this app for 3+ years and I am throwing in the towel. Too many disappearing keyboard issues (or maybe my thumbs are too big), and little things like not being able to put my thumb on an appointment to directly edit it. Like in Apple’s Calendar app. I do like the calendar integration; it makes total sense but it is just not well executed.
It is free and integrates well with the Microsoft suite in other ways. Which is important in my work environment. Do folks have other email client faves (other than gmail’s interfaces)?
Not good at filtering 1/5
Does a terrible job at filtering out phishing emails and junk like that and puts it right in my primary email. Very annoying and reporting the emails does absolutely nothing because I get the same stuff all the time.
Two Alerts? 4/5
I like the app but why isn’t there 2 alerts? Most calendar apps have 2.
