Nice app 3/5
The only thing i do not like about it (hence the 3 stars) is that when i search for an email, it pops up for a second then disappears and says “no results found”! Very frustrating
It won’t let me get to my emails when it says I have some but won’t load I’ve tried resetting it and deleting and reinstalling it but I can’t get to them and one is one to let me get my package but I can’t verify the email so I’ve lost 20$
Better now 4/5
It looks like they finally stopped the behavior where if you leave an email open, go to another app then come back, the app would take you back to your inbox instead of the email you left open. Very happy to see that behavior is dead. I was getting ready to abandon Outlook because of that.
The next thing I’d really love to see is to be able to have actions like Delete and Mark as Read with search results displayed. Currently when search results are displayed, the only action you can do is open an email. Not even the swipe left/right actions work there.
Any time I get a notification that I have an email I go to open the app, then it says I have no mail when I know for a fact I have something. This issue has been occurring since November.
Best Mail App 5/5
I've been using this app for awhile now to keep all my mail under one app. I like this a lot better than the basic mail app that comes with iPhones and the simple layout makes it easy for me to navigate between mailboxes.
Can’t search mail; Notifications don’t work 3/5
Good: schedule meetings, busy search calendars, and manage mail really well. Virtually fully-functional mail app.
Bad: Search doesn’t work, and hit-and-miss notifications. I can’t rely on it to notify me for meetings.
New update will not open 4/5
I updated the app today and now it will not open on my iPhone. I need this app for work. Please fix the bugs.
Wrong font size 2/5
I have replied to an email, but after I sent the email, I found the size of some words were different from the other words. The difference wasn’t appearing when I was editing my email.
No support for HTML signatures 1/5
Someone should tell Microsoft that it’s the 21st century and that HTML signatures are standard. Without them, I cannot use Outlook mobile in a professional capacity.
Anyone seeing Teams for calendars toggle disappeared after update?
Problems with aliases 2/5
Aliases will disappear for no reason. Deleting and reinstalling app will temporarily bring that feature back but it goes away. I no longer recommend this app.
App doesn’t list new emails 1/5
I use the Apple mail app to see my outlook emails on my iPhone. The app was updated yesterday. I checked my emails this morning and briefly saw I had two new emails. They disappeared from my screen within seconds. I finally found them when I used the filter to see only unopened emails. This never happened before. I normally would go to the app and I would see unopened and opened emails. My older unopened emails are still there.
Love it BUT 4/5
By Hanna’s Iphone
Outlook is perfect for school and work as well as secure.
However when it comes to accessing the emails on the app and not on a computer, half my emails don't show up unless I use the search tool for them.
It’s not missing in any folder (junk/spam, focused/other) it’s just invisible.
Also some days I just wont get ANY email notifications from the app but when I go in I’ve gotten 20+ throughout the day.
Just little details that made it 4stars and not 5–but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Bad! 🤬 1/5
It needs to validate my email address before I can send a message! I'm just a kid! Also, my parents won't allow me to do this! 🤬
Message Approvals 1/5
Microsoft EOL’d the OWA App that I had to use to approve messages to moderated groups. Yet have never add the feature to Outlook. I can’t approve a message on the mobile site either. I have to request the desktop site.
For a company that provides workflow for enterprise.... This is really disappointing.
Outlook on iPhone 2/5
The outlook app for iOS works, as in I can send and receive mail, but the search feature is AWFUL! I never get recent messages returned in searches, they are always months old.
By Black Hat Phoenix
If I edit a mail draft last week, last night and today, each time I edited any word there should be a different version of draft. But it’s not.
It’s using too much power of the phone.
Fatal flaw Apr 2020 still no group cal outlook 4.31.9 ios13 1/5
Ms said were working on it sep 14 2019. Zero integration with iOS. No way to see 365 group or teams calendars on any mobile dev be it iOS or Android, so useless really. Except no that clutter is gone since Jan 2020 outlook is only way to see focus inbox. Clear ms ploy to lock out non ms alternatives. No integration with Omni either. Is ms even listening?? Trying times.
Latest update killed my ability to respond to email. Same problem on iPhone and iPad.
Drains battery 3/5
Version 184.108.40.206 drains battery on my iPhone 7,
Previous version did not do that. I will have to uninstall it if this is not fixed ASAP.
Options needed 4/5
By Ace and Mom
Would love to have the option to change the auto reply from reply all to just reply. No one wants to reply all. Lol!
Why update every two days 1/5
Every two days there is update. It eats the phone space and irritating to update..
Good except when there is a string of emails 4/5
By Ben Jam In B
The app works great, and I often get email alerts on my phone before they come through my computer. The one thing I would mention is that when there are emails going back and forth in a string it is sometimes hard to follow the order of the emails. I usually need to look at the emails on my computer to make sure I have the order of the emails correct.
Keyboard disappearing 1/5
By Skooma Breath
Cannot compose an email without keyboard disappearing every few seconds!
v4.31 issue 3/5
After upgrading to 4.31, I’m not able to forward a photo via Outlook. Error is “Action Not Allowed. To protect its data, your organization needs to manage this app. To complete this action, launch Outlook and sign in...”. Outlook is signed in and I was able to do this just prior to upgrading.
Best Email app on the internet 5/5
Works seamlessly with all my devices, all my accounts, all the time. Literally the best!!
Shows promise, but needs to be better 3/5
I’m primarily using this app to consolidate emails from all my microsoft accounts. However, I still cannot reliably use this and remove dependencies on the mail app or the gmail app.
My top issue with this app is that after every update, it likes to clear the cache and re-download emails from the server. This is incredibly annoying for me. The combination of auto updates + frequent metro/plane travel means there are times when I will try to start the app in offline mode to find an email to read only to find it completely blank.
Second issue - clutter. This got enabled on one of my accounts and I cannot find a way to turn it off from settings within the app. With clutter enabled on some accounts vs not on others, it’s a confusing app experience, particularly when you’re in the All accounts mode.
Issue 3 - I have multiple accounts that start with the same alphabet. When trying to toggle between accounts, it shows me the same alphabet logo with different colors (which also change after major app updates). This makes it hard to toggle between accounts as you’re constantly searching for the right account.
not bad 4/5
this is far better than the native iOS mail app. however, the notifications are wonky. seemingly every other update, the badge notifications stop working. it sounds like a small thing, but if one is doing business across several email apps, it is crucial to know whether a message is waiting on one of them.
By Funky Bubbles
HATE it. Doesn't have the OUTBOX which is a basic folder to have because it constantly asks me to sign in and randomly decided not to send mails
Add option to change font 3/5
Need option to change font style
Focused Box needs to filter spam better 3/5
Focused Box needs to filter spam better
If you have iPhone...use a different app 1/5
I have never seen the keyboard on my iPhone glitch in such a MASSIVE way. I was trying to get emails done on the go and have to erase and re-write things constantly because of the lag and unresponsiveness of the app. I literally typed a word and waited 15 seconds for it to catch up to the word that I typed out. Please fix soon.
iPhone 8 Plus 3/5
I would give this 5 stars on my IPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 8 Plus but I’m having issues. I also have an XS. It’s great but I take a lot of pictures and send them via email. I have trouble taking a picture to attach to email on this app. I know it gives the option to reduce the image size, but the keyboard pops up every time and doesn’t give me the option to select reduce image size or I just get the wheel of death and nothing happens.
Maybe I’m doing it wrong, but it happens on all my devices and I don’t know how to fix it.
Poor; plus, poor grammar . . . 1/5
Forced to use this sub-standard app by my hospital when it upgraded to Win 10:
Ever since MS cannibalized Acompli (mail with focused Inbox) and Sunrise (calendar) to cobble this app, Outlook has failed the professional standard of other MS apps.
When MS finally awakened and realized that a real monthly view was needed and added that to the calendar section, the calendar was much improved; only to be sadly diminished by juvenile graphics that can’t be turned off, such as Google calendar provides for its users. For example, Outlook automatically shows a mortar board with tassel when you have an “eye exam.”
The July 2017 rebuild of Acompli gave us a clunky, sliding shelf apparatus that obscured the inboxes, and came with other cutesy changes that made life more difficult: Google mail accounts all were marked by the Google “G” rather than email name, which meant that they couldn’t be distinguished one from another — fixed by a dog-ugly repair; and, “reply all” was the default reply. Customer howling forced a partial correction to these latter two problems, but the nauseatingly busy shelf remains. The native app remains far sleeker and easier to use.
Poor grammar? An empty mailbox reads, “Nothing left to read, well played!” That’s a comma splice, which should have been corrected by junior high school. The text does, however, match the completely goofy background artwork. (Compare this text and art with the desktop version.)
Are there positives? The search engine works well and the app integrates well with other MS apps. Speaking of other MS apps — they far surpass Outlook.
Seamless transition between desktop and mobile 4/5
Love the app
Wish I could search within folders on the app
Used to be good 3/5
Used to love it, but recent updates have introduced bugs that prevent me from using it anymore. I cant respond to email threads, the keyboard automatically closes after a few seconds, emails aren't in sync and appear in different threads etc
Do not disturb needs an enhancement 1/5
By N/A 1234
I already disable all outlook notifications.
What I really need is a configurable option to not allow emails to come through unless they are from certain senders.
That way when I check my emails I’m not flooded with emails I don’t want to get sucked into during my vacation or weekend. This type of setting would help prevent burnout. I could choose no emails on weekends. Or only emails from my boss.
Basecamp has a feature like this called “work can wait” that I think you should consider.
Apple has a feature like this for phone calls and text messages, etc. also called “do not disturb” that lets you choose which notifications to allow.
I’m sure there are several other examples, but the point is that in order to prevent burnout you need to reduce emails from being visible.
Our willpower is not enough as we are all “conditioned” to keep checking email even if there are no notifications.
What do you think?
Please respond if you agree !!!
Creating a bullet list? You can never escape after that! 1/5
By Crumb head
You’re unable to escape from a bullet list once created. Outlook is really falling behind with their functionality when even basic email bullets/indenting doesn’t work.
Please Folders notifications 4/5
This app is great, but missing something very important, Folders Notifications!!!!
Needs btr organization 4/5
By Avid user 7
There is no way to search emails since Outlook sets up its own way with the inbox. Need to have a way to search by date or name or subject .
Multiple email accounts! 5/5
I’m enjoying Outlook on my I phone! I am a previous windows phone user, for last 15 years! The only thing I find confusing is the graphics for multiple accounts! When I open outlook I don’t know which email account I am looking at! When I touch upper left icon to go to others I still don’t understand what is there so I have to click on everything to make sure I find all emails!
By knee gerr
Just not what I hoped
Great App 5/5
I would’ve never really considered downloading the outlook app, but I downloaded this app because my school email address is an outlook account and I actually have found that I really like the app! You can use any email account including Gmail and Yahoo, and it’s far easier and faster to use than Apples mail app! I recommend this app 100%!! I wish I would’ve switched sooner!!
Attaching files is garbage 1/5
It won’t let you attach a file from our OneDrive account on your phone. Both are synced so you would think that two Microsoft products would work better together but I guess not.
Throws me out of the app while trying to set up account. Can’t use the app at all!
Latest update is buggy 2/5
By IM Toast
Keyboard keeps disappearing while typing. Can we leave well enough alone please?
Good enough bit missing the final punch 3/5
Outlook is a very good email app and I prefer it over the iOS mail app. But, MS outlook has far more potential. There are still glitches with the batch notification. It’s not accurate. There is also no option to customize the theme. Finally, MS outlook has the option to create a new email Folder and move emails to it, but once you create it, you will not be able to access it using the app...so what’s the point? It’s still a very good email app.
App support 5/5
I need any contact number to see if u can help me with my email because I can’t receive or send any message!
Great email App 5/5
Intuitive and easy to use layout and controls, have no suggestions to make it better
