So everything work fine overall but when I get a notification for a new email and go in and read it and then leave the app it still tells me I have an unread message which is the same email I just open a few seconds ago and when I click on it again and read again a second time then the notification bubble disappears

Usually when I receive emails, by using Face I.D, I can access it easily, without opening the app itself, now emails won’t open even with the Face ID authenticator, so I have to go to the app and check my emails, manually.

Garbage
by garrett_w314 on 2021/06/10 04:46
Title says it all. I constantly lose emails that I’m looking for, often I just don’t receive them at all, at least according to the app. I can see these lost emails when opening other mail apps but not in this one. If an email is over one week old, there is a good chance that even when I go searching for it, I won’t be able to find it anywhere in this app. I can’t find it when searching for the sender, the content, or even the exact subject line. It’s ridiculous that I have to keep another app on my phone to manage other emails, I wouldn’t use this at all if I could. Don’t get this app until they fix their garbage sorting system, and the apparent “deletion” that comes every so often. I can’t express my irritation with this app enough.

Searching on the app is terrible. Also when attaching it should be easier to pair the app with your OneDrive and not have to go 3 different places to attach something from one drive. Overall it is a good app, but could be a lot easier and is not a complete replacement for iOS mail app yet.

Absolutely Horrendous

This is absolutely the very worst app. The worse part is that US Military uses this app, and it’s absolutely unreliable. It’s always crashing, not to mention it crashes other Microsoft Applications, including Microsoft Cloud. Just horrendous. I personally stopped using this app, and it’s pretty sad that American 🇺🇸 Tax Payers have to pay for this horrible app, via the Department of Defense

The email service I get goes through Outlook… so opinions to not use are non-existent. If this app isn’t freezing, it just plain isn’t working entirely. Notifications of new emails doesn’t happen and search is just there to make the app look pretty. Microsoft used to be the king of the computer world, now it’s a joke. Do better

Entre al App de Gmail y Outlock esta clara cual es mejor. Hasta que no hagan las optimizaciones necesarias eliminare esta app de mi dispositivo
ADS
by chuckmyers on 2021/06/08 16:15
They added banner ads. This is absolute crap. Sure it’s just one more thing to swipe every time you open the app, but it’s absolutely an intrusive and evil move by a company that doesn’t value you.

I used to be able to tap a couple of times to paste some text that I had copied.

Always says “Updating”.
by unhappy user 345 on 2021/06/07 20:55
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.

by 2749376383936373i3u3y3 on 2021/06/06 17:17
Leave it to Microsoft and/or Apple to break an app for users of older devices and trap us in update-download-error loops. “Our companies are worth billions, and so are our executive officers. Although/because you’re not, we demand you replace working devices and give us what little money you have to buy new ones, so that our billions might quickly become trillions before you die penniless anyway.” It almost qualifies as bullying at this point.

Remove ads from my inbox
by EmptyBurger on 2021/06/06 15:42
Microsoft just added ads directly into the outlook inbox. Not spam emails, a separate row permanently at the top of the inbox that rotates advertisements that are formatted similar to incoming email. It’s insidious, invasive, and unacceptable. I am assuming this does not affect Office 360 customers because of course it wouldn’t. I will pay you to remove these ads, but removing ads is not a service that I’m willing to subscribe to.

Outlook should include Tasks and Notes just like the desktop version especially for accessing corporate accounts. It’s ridiculous that the separate apps To Do and OneNote are required. MobileIron Email+ integrates email, contacts, calendar, tasks, and notes into a single app. Surely Microsoft can do this.

This app is pretty good, but has a pretty degraded online website which is unfortunate when you are without your phone and need to sign in with a foreign computer. Other than that you need to have a Microsoft account to log in which makes it more complicated that it needs to be. I also have to log back into my account which is very annoying and unnecessary. Gmail is much more seem less, and compatible with my everyday life. Literally any other email platform for that matter is leagues in front of outlook. Pretty disappointed

A series of unfortunate events
by Dismals criticism on 2021/06/04 20:45
The following is real but all names will be false: I was going through the week in May when I had to make a 1 minute video for my final. It was worth 10% of my grade so I was taking my time in preparing it. When I finished. I tried to submit it using our website but it was impossible to get videos through there so I used outlook. You can’t even get a 15 second clip though there I realized and I was getting desperate. I had a last ditch idea to upload it to YouTube and email the link. Outlook decided to glitch at the worst possible time and make the sent notification and having a broken link. This is fun, life is fun, have a nice day.

Trouble sharing webpages to email
by Nunyabiz1234567 on 2021/06/04 08:38
I generally like The Outlook app, but the latest update does not include the ability to use the iOS share function. This has been standard in the past, if you want to email someone a link to a webpage from a browser or a news app, for example. The option to do so no longer appears anywhere, which is beyond aggravating. It took my emailing customer service three times to get a response, which was simply, “Oh hey, is there still a problem?” UPDATE: After I set Outlook as my default email client (Settings > Outlook > Default Mail App), this functionality seems to have returned. No thanks to Outlook “support.”

by P Ro, yup on 2021/06/03 16:07
In the mobile app it is very hard to clean out your mailbox. For example, when you search for a sender you cannot select the emails or swipe them for deletion. Instead you must leave the search/sort screen and go back to the main mailbox in order to select or swipe for deletion. It is very annoying. But for the most part it is a stable and bug free app that lets you easily access email; it just is lacking several features which should be easy to implement, such as deleting from the search/sort screen.

Great app, but isolated from iOS
by JPdarling9 on 2018/10/02 02:42
I really like the integration of the outlook app with Outlook on my Windows 10 PC, OWA and my Mac. The experience and functionality are very similar between platforms which make it easy for me to switch between them and still be productive. My biggest problem with the Outlook on iOS though is that it’s completely isolated from the rest of iOS. I understand there are some limitations with this, and maybe some more so on the SDK side of things rather than Microsoft’s, but it’s a bit frustrating that when I try to make a call directly from Phone, I don’t have the option to search through my outlook contacts. Or that when I see an email address on a website that I’m not presented with an option to write that email within the Outlook App. I’m able to share the ‘mailto:...’ link to a blank email in outlook, but cannot compose an email to that email address. The same extends for calendar. I would love to be able to see my calendar events from outlook in the calendar app, just as a kind of unifying calendar app. I know that I can setup my Office 365 account within the accounts pane in settings, but then I’m defeating the purpose of using outlook.
for school or work whatever it’s worth downloading
by What is Life! on 2020/11/03 16:53
I use it for school I have an outlook account that I sign into and without logging into my computer I can take outlook wherever and whenever. Their are downfalls using this app and one of them is........that if you have a signature that you put in some emails and others you don’t there is no way to put a signature in your email in Outlook app which I don’t mind but then again I thought all your capabilities that you have online or app on computer you would have in the app for your phone. Another downfall I think is that you can’t say a email is “low important or high importance” I again for me that’s not super important but it would be nice to have on the app for your phone. There are plenty other things you can’t do on the app for your mobile device but you can do on the desktop app for your computer or laptop or pc. Other than, I like using the app and reading emails that come in without running to my computer to reply or even just read a single message I can be away from my computer and use my phone while I’m on the go doing other things that are little more important than sitting at home waiting for a email to come in thinking that’s the only way I can respond and receive messages from Outlook.
Disjointed Functionality
by Phanoteus on 2020/07/23 17:03
It seems that Outlook routinely "forgets" your mail accounts, even when using Microsoft's own Exchange-based accounts (Outlook, Hotmail). Why is this? Why does Outlook have to refresh all of your mail locally almost every time you open it? There will even be a numerical badge indicating unread messages, but when you open Outlook, you will be notified that Outlook has "found" accounts on your system (accounts that you have, of course, already added to Outlook) and you will be prompted to add these accounts again. The standard Apple iOS Mail app actually seems to manage Microsoft's own mail accounts better than Microsoft's email app. How can this be? Is Apple doing sometime here to hobble non-Apple email apps (as they do with non-Apple mobile browsers) or has Microsoft not been able to figure out how to develop native iOS applications? I'm inclined to think it's the latter, because other non-Apple email apps do seem to be able to retain email account continuity. It's a shortcoming only for the Outlook email client. I keep trying to use Outlook as a mobile email client for my Microsoft email accounts and I always end up uninstalling it and reverting to the Apple app or some other third-part email app. It's a shame, really. Google's Mail app works pretty well for Gmail. Microsoft's Outlook app doesn't work well for Microsoft email. What's going on here?
Pretty Good
by Ezera Catt on 2020/10/08 21:32
I’d give it an 4.5 if I could, but it’s not a four. I’d like it if it was easier to figure out at first how to access other folders such as trash and drafts—or maybe I’m just slow. I like how you can change what the slide function has—I have it set to delete which is super helpful and I wish the apple mail app had. I use both apps with Microsoft OutLook for my school email. I also like the computer version as well. Both versions of the app can (and do) remind me of events I have in my Microsoft calendar (I forget their name, if it has one). This is really helpful as my high school is using teams during the whole pandemic-so I get reminded before school starts, towards the end of classes I dislike, and before lunch ends that I have class which is really helpful. I’ll also mention that you can turn this off—for one or all events—and change the amount of time beforehand that it reminds you at (15 or 5 minutes beforehand for example). I still will use google as my main email because I already am—it isn’t better enough in the ways it is to change. I don’t think it is worse per say that google/apple email apps/websites. Hope this helps!
I weep for everyone who has to use his on iOS.

This is the worst app that I have on my phone. Typically I don’t keep apps that I absolutely hate, but since I have no alternative to using this horrible thing, I haven’t removed it. This pathetic thing has caused problems for me professionally. It takes less time for me to boot up the computer and check my calendar and then it does for me to even make my calendar showing this out. Hoping out an email literally takes as long as it would to write a letter and put it in the mail. Smoke signals will be better than this app. I can’t even open my calendar to understand what kind of meetings I have for the day because this app loads every single calendar I have shared to me and freezes every time I click a button. This is horrible. Don’t know why Microsoft insists upon upgrading things to be absolutely terrible. Even more I can’t understand why the entire professional world forces everyone to use Outlook. Gross. Even worse, it’s been out for a year already and you’ve done nothing to fix it, it’s gotten worse if anything. I’d be fired if I was this bad at my job.
Very simple email app
by nammai25 on 2020/08/08 14:00
I have used numerous email applications in the past, but Outlook really is the best of them all, period. There are a lot of features here that I can’t fathom in either Gmail or Yahoo Mail, such as calendar integration, syncing with multiple devices (including computers), and a simple user interface. While I heavily use Gmail on a day-to-day basis, I think that Microsoft really pays off when it comes to this functional app. I don’t want to screw Redmond if they have missed anything worthwhile or important, but I am happy with the work that the Outlook team has put into it. In conclusion, please download this app if you can, and enjoy a simple, refreshing email experience. (The only flaw I have encountered so far? Well, as far as I can tell you, there have been a lack of features from the web app of Outlook, and you have to sign in there to access them. Only the mobile app has several features. But, otherwise, as I have said, I am content with that.)
User friendliness and efficiency needs improvement
by ritzoni on 2019/10/13 09:30
So when you use gmail you can do a search and it will bring up emails specifically from the word you searched. For example, if you search for Apple Pay it will pull up emails from Apple Pay first. If you do the same search in outlook it will give you all emails that include those words as the sender, subject, mention, etc. This means you have to navigate through a list of unimportant emails to get to the one you want if you don’t give up in utter disappointment in the process. If that’s not frustrating enough when you write an email and it goes past a certain line you better hope you can type really well because you won’t be able to see past that line. I would have to stop scroll up and check the sentence, correct it blindly because it toggles back down where it can’t be seen and continue typing. So I started writing in other apps like gmail and forwarding it to outlook or doing a copy paste and forwarding it to my recipient if it was a longer message. That is not how I want to send my emails but outlook hasn’t seemed to be able to figure out how to make it work. Thus I have several apps for emails. Ugh
Extremely basic, can’t organize mail
by ggianop on 2020/03/03 05:24
This is a terrible implementation of outlook. It’s only good for basic reading & writing of simple emails. I can’t manage folders other than the ability to create new folders at the top level of the folder hierarchy. I can’t create a hierarchy of folders. God forbid you used Outlook for windows to create a folder hierarchy in your mailbox; it can’t be edited, new folders can’t be created within this hierarchy, and there is NO WAY to delete any folders in this app. (The native Apple Mail app is more functional with this regard than MS’ own app.) The only other reason I’d use this app over Apple Mail client is to retain the ability to create other types of outlook / exchange documents in folders. But, alas, the authors have removed this feature too. No more notes, postings, or other document types. So now I have to email things to myself and move them into folders when I want to use exchange to organize my online documents & notes; and that means sending notes through email which is often a security risk I was never exposed to before. But, then again, since I can’t do folder Mgmt, I’m better off using Apple Mail so I can at least manage where and how I store my info with my folder hierarchy.
The only thing worse than this app is their customer service
by Coppercosmo on 2019/01/04 21:42
I’m trying to use this app to access my work email from home. The app has continually deleted my entire inbox for no consistent reason I can figure out. I will open a new email and it will delete the email while I’m reading it and then my entire inbox. My inbox on my work computer will still be intact, but any email I attempted to open in the app will be missing. When I contacted customer service through the app they told me it simply wasn’t possible that the app was deleting emails and never responded again. When I attempted to email customer service on my work computer it said their customer service email address is undeliverable. I missed a very important email from my boss this morning while out sick, and even drove into work to try and see if I could access the email there to find nothing. I very well might loose my job over this and their customer service frankly does not care. If you can avoid using Microsoft (which I know is impossible) do all you can to stay away from them. They are a heartless company, and their substandard products will not only make your life hell, their customer service department seems to get joy out of your pain. If I could give them zero stars I would!
God Forbid You Have to Rest Your Password
by Thanatos XIII on 2019/08/07 04:54
I was notified today that my account was disabled for “suspicious activity.” No explanation of that activity - just directions to reset my password. Tried resetting using the request form which asked for a previous password, the email address of my previous sent email and the subject line of the previous sent email, etc. Now, if I could remember my password, I wouldn’t be trying to reset it! Anywho, send the form to wherever it goes after answering the questions to the best of my ability only to be sent something saying they couldn’t verify it was really me!!! Finally got on a chat with support and was basically told “for security purposes” staff can not enable an account. When I asked how they can disable an account with no explanation and without being able to enable it, I was told to create another account... 🤬. Now I can’t correspond with my attorney via email or send anything from this account. It’s 10 levels of frustrating and has convinced me to stop using this service and to make sure everyone I talk to knows how stupid this “recovery” system is and that your account can end up disabled with no explanation or viable means to reset your password. Just a hard lesson in frustration and a waste of time.
Poor Features Compared To Others
by S_C_U_B_A_Steve on 2019/01/11 16:15
Let me first say I do like Outlook on a web platform and on Microsoft’s system - however, we changed over to IPad and IOS because of the Windows phone discontinuation. This APP has been a bugger since I set it up. I have reloaded it 2 or 3 times in the last couple of months because it fails to send- despite correct settings through our broadband supplier. Now, I can receive mail but will not send even though it worked fine for about 2 weeks - no settings changes. Besides that, the app has a very basic signature line and hardly customizable, no mail read receipts. This would be handy because I have many emails that show in the “Sent” folder that didn’t go anywhere. I understand we use this as an interface, but I shouldn’t get a banner showing a new email and have to wait 5-10 minutes for it to actually show up in the inbox. Support is via ticket not live and I have waited 20+ hours at times to get a response. Personal email is one thing, but for a business.. can’t have it. There are other things however I believe i have typed enough. Version 3.5 at the moment. Again, I enjoy outlook on a Microsoft system or as used via web - but this app and it’s updates/features for IOS are lacking.
Only one month of storage? Seriously?
by Jeff DeWitte on 2020/07/26 20:07
I don't know about the rest of you but I use this app on my iPhone for business. It has a very limited amount of storage space and I received quite a few emails. I'm only able to access emails dating back one month. No help from tech-support and I see that many others have suggested an improvement to the developers. No response. Typical Microsoft behavior. They will always think they're better and smarter than anybody else. Part of the problem is that they don't listen. That arrogance and lack of adaptation to changing behavior is what is making their company fade. The only way to access these older emails is to use the web-based browser on my desktop. This is an absolutely ridiculous alternative just simply having an app that would allow you to use local storage on your device to archive and back up your emails for easier access on the go. I'm not sure why they have such limited storage. I have tons of free storage using my yahoo email dating back to the late 90s! Absolute crap. If you can avoid this ridiculousness please find another email client to serve your business needs. And Microsoft - I hope you burn in hell.
The App is Ok
by Bethdoodle on 2019/08/01 16:21
The app has worked great since I got it last year, especially for school. But recently it’s stopped sending me notifications for some emails which has caused me to miss several emails and dead-lines. It’s too late for me at this point so please fix this issue. I don’t know if it’s because I had 2 inboxes from 2 different school emails or what, but this problem has caused me a lot of stress and I’d prefer it not happen in the future. Edit: The issue that I believed was originally occurring is not the only one. It appears the reason I am not getting notifications for emails is because these emails aren’t appearing in my inbox until days later. For example, several emails I received on the 30th of July did not appear in my inbox until today. I did not get any notifications for any emails on that 30th. This is really frustrating because I’ve received emails from university faculty who have been sending and requesting information and it is really creating a huge hassle for me and causing more stress than is needed. Maybe this is something I need to talk to my school about? If it is please let me know.
Frustrating App
by rjsarles on 2020/08/18 15:26
This has to be one of the most irritating email apps I have ever used. It does remedy some of my issues with iOS email, but several things drive me crazy. I get several longer emails a day, newsletters and such, and as I am scrolling down the email it just stops with a “read more” button. It then opens the email again and returns you all the way to the top. So then I have to scroll all the way back to where it left off. If you need to switch apps for a second and return to finish the email you are reading? You guessed it. It returns you all the way back to the top and you have to scroll all the way back down. Accidentally close the window?Right again! Scroll all the way to the bottom, press the “read more” button which returns you to the top, then scroll all the way back down where you left off. There SO MANY ways they could easily remedy this but a simple one would be to have a button at the top of the email to open it in its own window. I have other issues, like not being able to create subfolders to the inbox without doing it on a laptop, but that’s enough complaining for one review.
No drag and drop?
by Dvlrbbt on 2020/07/03 01:22
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.
What was wrong w a chronological inbox?
by JackH959 on 2021/01/11 18:33
Hi - Ive recently noticed emails “missing” from my inbox, which is a result of an update, apparently. Rather than having multiple emails from the same sender visible, they are all condensed into one, despite “organization by thread” turned off. Unless I want to reply back to the latest email, finding a previous email can be a chore, as the emails “organized” within this thread that apparently isnt a “thread” arent always in chronological order. Sometimes newer emails are at the top, sometimes at the bottom, and clicking on the “...” is always required to scroll the conversation to figure out if im looking at the correct message. It’s a total waste of time and I cant see any reason why anyone would want to have to go through this effort to find 1 email, when the previous method involved just scrolling and opening it. I strongly dislike this “improvement” and wish I could revert to a previous version of this app.
Terrible for GSuite Accounts
by kw.squid on 2019/01/14 04:08
I’ve been a dedicated user of this app for several years and have been pretty satisfied, until recently. I started a business, got a gsuite account for it, and when I started sending mail from iOS Outlook, all of the mail from the gsuite accounts would be routed to spam by my customers email providers. At first, I thought it must be my new email address...then I tried sending mail directly from gmail on safari. No problem - no emails routed to spam. Then I downloaded Edison mail (thinking maybe it’s a third party app thing?!) and sent an email. Again, no problem - no emails routed to spam. I tried iOS outlook again...and my email got sent to spam. I reported it to the customer service team, and they brushed it off saying it wasn’t their problem. I beg to differ if the emails I send from your app get flagged as spam by recipients and yet the exact same email sent by a different app isn’t flagged by spam...I think that is your problem! And to top it off, to tell me that they won’t do anything about it, is doubly annoying. I’m removing outlook from my phone and recommend anyone with business gsuite accounts to stear clear!
FIX CALENDAR REMINDERS
by Brosef87 on 2018/12/11 22:29
i'm not giving this app more than 1 star until you guys fix Calendar reminders that were created on the desktop version of outlook but somehow are not able to sync on to this mobile version. Thats a crucial part of a calendar app, is it not? UPDATE: calendar issue fixed but this app is still completely useless if I can't log in with One Touch. I have to completely reboot my phone each time it starts throwing an error. This is an enterprise app how are you guys allowing this to happen. Still one star because I can't even enter the darn app. ONE-YEAR LATER UPDATE: this app still is unfortunately unreliable. For most professionals, calendar appointments are extremely important in their day-to-day business schedule. There are NOT ENOUGH notification capabilities through this app to remind people of upcoming appointments. My other calendar app, Calendars by Readdle, that I use for my personal life, I can set multiple reminders at 1 day, 30 minutes, 15 minutes, and 5 minutes before an important appointment so I can feel confident that I NOT MISS that crucial meeting. Unfortunately that type of functionality is missing with Outlook.
So good in some areas and 1990 in others.
by NebraskaJer on 2017/12/11 23:55
Hello, I love the outlook app and I need to use it on a day to day basis. Some of the items like calendar events and sending notifications is great in parts but lack in editing. First off. Why is there no copy and paste in Outlook. I had a whole email typed up and I needed to input a link. So what would I have to do? Copy and paste it in. Nope. I have to go to safari and click share and then outlook so I can send a link in outlook. Well then when I get in outlook I have to retype my message or just paste in the other one right. Nope. Paste does not work from previous to new message. So I have to manually copy something by hand. Link or original message. Come on Microsoft. Make copy and paste work the. You get a solid 4. Add some polish and sub folder notifications and some editing tools you will have a 5 Star app again. Please fix these little flaws. You have office and should be able to make a solid app. Now let’s make it happen. Thanks.
Contacts emails going to Junk folder
by EveningStarrr on 2020/09/21 23:29
There is something wrong with this email platform of outlook. It used to work fine and I’ve been using outlook and msn email programs and email addresses for years but now it’s putting important business mail in the junk mail folder continuously. These are email addresses and people that I have put in my contacts and have continuously told the program they weren’t Junk. These are important work emails and some I have missed or had trouble finding. I’ve had to tell work that my email isn’t working right and to resend things. Sometimes something I searched and found yesterday won’t come up today. Sometimes the only way to find a reply to my sent email is to look at my sent folder to see their replies. That’s a trick that I learned because they’ll combine your sent with its replies. People ask me what I’m using outlook for, that they’ve never heard of it and that it must be cheap and faulty. They tell me to switch. I tell them “How do you not know MSN and Outlook?”. I have to find a new email platform because this one has turned bad and it means change my email address that I’ve had for 12 years or so and I’m not too happy about that.
I hate outlook
by bbaacc123184 on 2019/02/07 17:31
This is the worst email app I’ve ever used. Unfortunately, I have to use it because my university uses it. First of all, it’s the ugliest email app. There’s no contact photos shown next to an email, like in gmail of yahoo mail, so it’s hard to differentiate between who is sending you an email. All the emails blend together into a born blob of black and white, making me check this email the least. Also, you can’t search a phrase or sender and then select multiple emails to delete them. That’s half the reason I even use the search function. Perhaps you can delete emails this way on a laptop, but I mainly check my email on my phone, so it’s egregiously inconvenient. In addition the focused and other email tabs are so stupid. The app just arbitrarily organizes them with no knowledge of what emails are actually important to you and which ones aren’t. As a result, I often don’t see important emails in a timely manner because they go into the other tab. Checking my email shouldn’t have this many complications, and being able to delete my emails by search should be an option. Please fix your dysfunctional app. I’m hoping I never have to have another outlook email after I graduate.
Apple Watch App is a Fail
by projekZER0 on 2018/12/14 17:15
The Outlook iOS app gets 4.5 stars in my opinion. I actually think I like it better than Apple’s mail and calendar apps. It does everything those apps do with a slicker UI and a little more fidelity. It loses half a star because it is not quite as simple to setup and required my to create an iCloud email to sync my iCloud calendar. Where is fails miserably is the Apple Watch app. Basically, the calendar function doesn’t work at all. It always says I have no events when I have a packed calendar pretty much every day. Randomly an event will show up, but then it’s gone the next minute. It never shows events on the complication on the home screen. Also, the number icon to show how many new or unread emails changes between a number and zero every few minutes even though nothing in my inbox has changed. There is some kind of sync issue between the IOS app and the Apple Watch App. I’ve tried everything to remedy it. My Apple Watch is how I most frequently access my calendar. So regardless of how good the Outlook app is, as a package it cannot replace Apple’s apps until they can fix the Apple Watch app.
Almost 100 percent.
by Raym no2 on 2020/08/12 13:42
I keep reading that Outlook may still not play well with all the other apps available - and, to be honest, we should not expect that it should. There are just too many apps with too many formats and offerings to contend with. However, it seems like one or two niceties of the other major apps like “Fantastical” that would be very helpful. One example is the ability to set multiple a times for reminders before an event. It may sound trivial but it is not if you are planning for a birthday, vacation or other important event. Outlook is truly a great application for IOS and I would highly recommend it to all. You have to really use it to appreciate it. If I were just starting to use Ios it would be my first down load. It is truly a 5 star app - Thank you Microsoft! However, for me to start the laborious task of transferring all my data to Outlook for IOS, Outlook needs a couple of small enhancements to push it over the top.
Not possible to access iCloud files
by WheezyG on 2017/11/20 18:01
My employer uses Microsoft outlook for email. This would not be a problem if not for this apps inability to attach documents I store on my iCloud. All my devices (watch, phone, laptop, iPads) are apple devices. I store all of my important files on iCloud. If I am replying to an email and want to send an attachment, I’m out of luck. When I click on attach, the Files section does not include iCloud. I decided to have my Google Drive sync my most heavily used work-related folder on my iCloud. But when I try to set up that account under Files, it fails and I get a notification to contact support. Support seems really communicative however. They are definitely interested in helping me make this work. Unfortunately, when I see a support notification pop up, I cannot even open the conversation without first trying to set up my Google Drive, then having it fail, then seeing the pop up with a link to contact customer support. There is no way to access the customer support chat without forcing something to go wrong then opening up the chat window. This is a definite flaw in the iPad version of this app!
Buggy when used with Google Gsuite accounts
by Wayt on 2020/02/07 19:00
Outlook works very well with my Exchange and Office 365 accounts. They claim to support Gmail, and the basics do work but when used with Google’s Gsuite email accounts, the app still has serious bugs. Very frequently, for example, when I reply to a message on my Gsuite account, Outlook shows “mail sent” (and does send the reply) but then marks the reply as a draft. So my inbox is littered with threads that are falsely marked as having unsent drafts. Even more frustrating, every so often Outlook won’t let me complete a reply to a message. I start typing, but after 5-10 seconds, the app suddenly closes the text input window, obliterating what I’ve written. It does not save a draft, so I can’t pick up again from where I left off. I now have several of theses messages in my inbox that Outlook refuses to let me reply to. There is nothing unusual at all about those plain-text messages. Outlook support suggested resetting the account and restarting the app. I did, and neither of the bugs above went away. My advice if you use Gsuite mail accounts—find a different mail app.
Outlook Email
by MelanieAMeyer on 2021/05/31 16:43
I just purchased a new iPhone 12 Pro Max and I’ve setup 3 email accounts through the Outlook iOS app with ease which is way more than I can say about the Mail app that came preinstalled on the iPhone! I was able to setup one email account through the preinstalled Mail app and that’s where it ended. After trying and trying, even after using the step by step instruction (hours I’ll never get back) to add multiple email accounts to the preinstalled IOS Mail app I finally gave up and downloaded the Outlook app. Not only is it stupid easy to add multiple email accounts, it took mere minutes to do so. I’m sticking with Outlook! If it takes that much time and effort to setup multiple email accounts through the preinstalled Mail app with a person who is more than capable of understanding the technology and process to do so says a lot about the app. I encourage everyone to install the Outlook app, you won’t be disappointed.
So Much Better Than the Native iPhone Mail App
by markedwjohnson on 2020/08/07 16:24
I had been meaning to try the Outlook app for iOS for a couple of years, moved to O365 and MS Intune necessitating my move to Outlook for iOS; fine by me. The learning curve has been minimal. I haven’t found a way to move between emails without going out to my inbox or other containing folder, but I haven’t had time to google that, either. I just wish there were up/down arrows within an email allowing me to move up/down a message within the parent folder. I like that it feels more professional in UI appearance than apps aimed at consumers in general; other than the one feature I complained about it lacking above. I haven’t tried this yet, but it appears that I can even set my OOO message, or update it, from the app! Now THAT’S a level of integration with our Exchange server that wasn’t even possible with any other mail app on the iPhone or iPad. That is awesome! I can’t wait to find out what other little nuggets it has that I haven’t discovered yet!
Looks Nice but☹️
by vishwarupa on 2019/11/02 13:54
This app seems clunky and obsolete lacking fluidity, user interface and basic functionality preventing user from easily executing simple, everyday tasks. Cannot SELECT ALL and DELETE emails in Trash Bin—the mobile app only selects 7 emails at a time; the Trash Icon is not easily seen at top of screen but rather I had to scroll through 90 emails to locate the Trash Icon at the bottom of the list of emails—highlighting 7 email maximum, scrolling a long list to get to the icon at the bottom of lengthy list of emails is not practical and requires an inordinate amount of time and steps to expedite a simple function. The REPLY field appears at the bottom of an email rather than easily, conveniently above an incoming email. The only readily available function choices appear to be Focus & Filter—user has to log online to use the few Settings options. The Search magnifying glass does not appear to be readily/easily available. The ONLY reason I use the app is I am unable to email a Word file unless from within the app. Simple, basic tasks are not straightforward some inaccessible on iOS Xs Max and iPad Pro.
Terrible, just as bad as yahoo web
by LynleyGirl on 2017/12/12 23:18
Thought I’d get a better email client. Think again. (1) you will not be able to connect the Apple default contacts app., in fact, there’s nothing much you can connect to in this app. It loses email. Deleting them right out for various actions you take. There is no waiting period if u accidentally delete a mail- it’s gone. (2) don’t save anything to draft folder. It will save & alter it right where u are, then put a copy of the header - that is unalterable - in the draft folder. You will not b able to change who the email is primarily addressed to, which will b you!! So insane. (3) I just pulled up the “give feedback “ form in the app, & somebody else’s review was in it. I know they weren’t using it as example- b/c it was entitled “Outlook Dogfood”. Wish I’d seen that b4 I lost 2 important email today. Advised them this was a privacy issue- but... (4) if u get this app, suddenly, u will drown in user-tailored spam. I got maybe 5 a day b4 switching, now like 60-70. Not a coincidence. (5) don’t expect to b able to attach anything easily - nothing u want to attach anyw. There are no options for file programs to download... the list goes on and on.
Better than Apple's native mail app
by Flexjordan on 2018/10/10 00:06
I admit I was never impressed with the prior version of OWA. But this app is better than Apple's mail app. I like how the conversational threads lay out, the Focused conversations seem fairly intelligent in terms of dividing my email between important and non-important, and I love the ability to access attachments I have previously opened without having to find the original email that contained the attachment. Finally, this app seems to have magically saved my iPhone's battery life once I delinked my Exchange account from the iPhone default mail app. Only drawback is I couldn't figure out how to keep my contacts and delete my old Mail account entirely, so I had to re-connect my account in Settings in order to restore contacts and keep them sync'ed. Update 2 years later... this app just gets better and better. Thank you to the team involved for making the best mail app on the market.
Makes you LESS Productive
by @smaedli on 2019/04/07 21:04
The application workflow logic is a tragic mess, which has made Outlook an utter pain to use on a daily basis. Need to look at one email message? Good luck. Threading adds a ridiculous number of taps to view anything. Need to print or PDF one message in a thread? Nope. In fact, one can’t even successfully print a whole thread (and yes, some people in business have a need to print something sometimes). Calendaring is pretty awful and keeps getting worse. Mobile IU design or a logic to settings? Nope. Not exactly sure what paradigm is being used, but it certainly isn’t a model for people who run and gun communicate. Outlook does not reliably update, it freaks out if there’s the slightest network issue, and fails to smoothly integrate with anything. In short, if you don’t have to use Outlook, avoid this app. Like all Microsoft 365 products over the last few years, it has deteriorated into an unfathomable mess. Unfortunately, many of us (myself included) have to use it and lose hours of time each month because of its poor design tied to the wretched quagmire of the O365 cloud ecosystem.
Thank you...

This is the mail app I needed and wish I knew about it years ago. I have 4 email accounts and one is through ECPI. They use an exchange server, so guess what, yahoo mail can’t connect to it, Apple mail needs to have a password entered and a verification process is done, just to look at an email...for school. I don’t get it. Yesterday I downloaded this app and it’s already a life saver. It took a little bit for email to show up in my folders for yahoo, but I only had to verify yahoo one time when setting it up. I just finished customizing my settings and it’s even better. There’s a focused mail box thingy, I didn’t like it and it let me turn it off. I noticed you have to go through notifications and click each mail server you want notifications from, because your default is automatically selected. Oh, btw, I deleted yahoo and Apple mail apps and moved this one next to my hand receiver icon.
Great for corporate e-mail
by cchubbuck on 2020/10/23 12:57
To those who say that it is limited because it lacks integration with iOS that is exactly the point and the reason why you want this app. You can always use the built-in mail app in iOS and connect to your exchange server or office 365, however this carries some risks as your administrator can now wipe the entire phone if necessary (or on accident). With the outlook app an administrative wipe is only limited to the data in the outlook app itself it will not wipe your entire phone. THIS is the reason to use Outlook. It is a bit less convenient to have the main calendar app and the Outlook calendar for instance, but I believe the separation is worth the inconvenience. iOS 14 outlook calendar widget is here now and also works great. My only ding is the stupid ‘play my emails’ prompt. It’s turned OFF, yet Outlook asks me every launch. You need to go in and turn it on, then turn it off for it to go away. Stupid!!
Best iPhone email client
by AxMerr on 2021/04/27 12:26
I use many different emails, gmail, yahoo, and exchange and outlook for iPhone has best integration for all of them. Easy to use and follow. It also provides the focuses and unfocused inbox which is extremely useful and accurate (all my work or action related email goes to focused inbox). The search is very accurate and fast. The only thing I would improve there is that once I get the search result, to be able to have an option to select all and provide an instruction ie to delete or move to a folder, which it doesn’t allow at this time. Calendar is great too. If you are Outllook user in desktop, the mobile app version is 100x more reliable and user friendly. I no longer use the outlook for windows email client I use another one since outlook for windows is glitchy. So don’t judge the mobile app version with the performance of the windows laptop version.
Great app, but ...
by ebassily on 2020/05/07 05:10
When I delete or archive an email it takes me back to the list view rather than moving on to the next email. I should at least be given the choice of whether I like to move forward or go back to the list. Making contact pictures appear (as advertised in app pics) beside each email from them is a pain. I have been trying to make it happen for quite a bit now without success. I even copied many of my 6+k contacts to Outlook on my Mac to be on the Exchange server rather than on iCloud but it didn’t work either. I think the problem is that Outlook insists on keeping itself isolated from iOS apps and their SDKs. It doesn’t show contacts from iOS although it does show iCloud calendars. The app even doesn’t have a Contacts tab like its macOS counterpart. There is a Mail tab as well as Calendar and search tabs, but no Contacts. Even the Contacts section on the macOS app is far inferior to Apple’s stock Contacts app.
Great replacement for Mail, needs only one fix
by rebg23 on 2020/07/29 15:34
Overall I really like outlook and find it is equal to or better than Mail in virtually all respects. The reading function works amazingly well, and the overall layout and functionality is excellent. The one function I don’t like in Outlook and wish work like Mail is the undo function when I am filing and moving messages into folders. In Mail, if I move a message to the wrong folder, I can just shake the phone and and trigger the undo function to reverse the move, even several seconds later. But in Outlook, the undo is provided by a software button that appears for only a couple of seconds at the bottom of the screen. If I don’t click the button right away, the ability to undo has passed, and then I have to hope I can find the message in the wrong folder and manually re-locate it etc. Not a deal killer by any means, but if that were fixed, I would give it six stars.
Group Access in newest version
by ProfCalculus on 2018/04/28 14:50
Our university uses Office365 for email and provides us access to the suite of products it includes. Because this the web portal is how most students access their email, I decided to use a O365 group to organize my student workers with a dynamic group calendar. I'm using the O365 calendar vs a Google Calendar or any other 3rd party calendar because that would require an additional account for students. I was happy to hear that group access was going to soon be found in the outlook app, because the MS Groups app is atrocious. Well here it is, and we still have ZERO support for shared or group calendars in the app, all we get is email support, which we had for the most part anyways, because I would get group emails sent to my regular account. It seems like the only additional functionality we have gained is the ability to send a NEW group message from the app. This is VERY DISAPPOINTING. O365 actually makes it MORE DIFFICULT to manage my group. Don't get me started on the discrepancies between groups and teams, that's a rant for another day.
My performance review was affected because of multiple accounts
by HereComesTheActualReview on 2020/02/11 20:41
We all have managers who try to fit team members in bell curve. They keep looking for small things and exaggerate in performance review. I have this incident happened to me because of outlook. I have my organization (very big company $600 billion valuation) emails and outlook account on same app. On a morning I was sick and sent an email to team that I would be WFH. None of my team mates received it. The next day my Sr. Manager sent an email to team that do not work from home with out notifying. And, my colleagues over lunch said they were asked about me. I wondered and said I dropped an email too. And, I showed it. None of our colleagues received it. I myself apps developer understood what went wrong. I sent it from personal one. But I sent it to my company team GDL. WHY SHOULD OUTLOOK AUTOFILL ONE ACCOUNT’s EMAIL IDs in another one? My manager just brought this and mentioned everytime in every meetings. Managers were in always constant tension because their managers were in same. In a performance review yesterday he mentioned this and fit me in bell curve. I resigned today with out having another job. Thanks Outlook for making me realize I am with bad team. Thank you. But don’t auto fill another team’s accounts in another account. It is too dumb. Who is the product owner came up with this idea?
Miserable and Virtually Unusable Mobile App.
by Dawgduo on 2019/10/31 10:30
As a field based associate, I use my mobile email about 90% of the time. That said, my company recently switched from the extremely user-friendly, logically laid out Blackberry Work app. to the complex, convoluted and extremely cumbersome Outlook Mobile App. Once you reply to an email in the Outlook App., you can no longer see the sender’s original email they sent you, you can only see your reply unless you go into the email again and scroll down and click on “Load Message,” in which case you can see the sender’s original note, but have limited ability to forward or include attachments a second time. When I click on web links, it launches me into Microsoft Edge App. and very few of our intranet sites work (they all worked perfectly in the Blackberry Work browser). If I want to see my “forwarded” or “replied to” email, you should just be able to go into “Sent” items and see that, if you so choose, but in this app., you can only easily see your most recent forward or reply. HELP MICROSOFT!!! Please fix this to work like a normal email system. Why did you try to reinvent the wheel here?!!
Love it
by Chase McNugget on 2020/06/14 15:24
This app is way better than Gmail, I feel like this one is more simple to use, this app looks better and is more pleasing! I love the app on my Apple Watch. I really like the Focused part of outlook, I am just wondering how to make curtain senders go to Focused mailbox. You can add other email accounts beside outlook like Gmail and Yahoo and others. I like how if I put my phone in dark mode it does that with that app. There is a feature where Cortona can read your emails which I personally do not use a lot but is a great feature for accessibility and just hearing Emails while walking with my AirPods or other headphones. I was also wondering how you can make certain senders of mail go to trash like I have a eBay account and I get constant emails which I do t like but I want to keep my eBay account. Overall I would recommend this app way more than Gmail! Good job Microsoft!
Email account issues
by DurdeeBurger on 2018/02/21 13:22
I used outlook for iPhone for about past 6 months or so and generally liked it a lot more than stock mail app. Has a nice look, calendar view built in, lots of nice extras. This week my yahoo account kept asking me to sign in. Every time I sign back in it tries forever then asks me to try again with modern or legacy sign in. Doesn’t matter what you choose cuz nothing works at this point until you force close and restart. I also can’t get to my mail without addressing this as it won’t let me so I was forced to remove yahoo. I thought whatever that’s my junk mail anyway perhaps yahoo having an issue. Now it’s doing it with my gmail account. I re-signed in for it last night and now this morning it asks me again when checking my mail and even though I sign in correctly for both accounts (I get emails telling me so in other accounts about sign ins on Microsoft app), outlook keeps asking me re-sign in or remove account. Well now I’m down 2 email accounts so deleted this app and back to old reliable stock mail app.
It kind of blows compared to the capability of using the site, or other email handlers.
by Netkid_100 on 2020/08/14 16:44
I’ve used Outlook since it was Hotmail originally. This app has the least of what you need, and tries too hard to be new with a weird (Focus) switch for your inbox. Meaning I miss all types of email that it doesn’t think I’m focused on. Plus, it has spam and phishing emails filtered into the Focus section. My main issue is that I can’t find any rule setting, or block option for repeated spam mail. I blocked everyday in my Apple email app, and didn’t see as many spam messages hit my inbox until I started using this app to check the addressee and mark the message junk. Since there’s no menu, submenu, or tap/hold option to do so either. I don’t know who made this app, but it’s missing most of what makes Outlook efficient, and Outlook is getting terrible at filtering out spam/phishing/general junk emails in the last year. Might need to make the full jump to Gmail, even as a Microsoft supporter.
Email just stops working and prompts for password.
by G, Ron on 2020/07/31 04:36
On multiple iOS devices the email will just stop working and prompted for a password. When entered it doesn’t reconnect. Tried resetting the account, removing the account and re-entering, and deleting Outlook and reinstall. Nothing works. The “Contact Support” option is a total joke. Received initial response from my request immediately and I’m still waiting for a response after 24 hours. Opened another support ticket on my other iOS device and entered all the requested information for the original device and again received and initial response immediately but then nothing for hours. Then I received a response asking me to perform another test. Still waiting for the response from support. I really like Outlook when it works. I like the email, calendar, and contacts all in one place. I have been using this app for several years and on multiple devices. On multiple occasions I have had to contact support in order to get the app working again. Each time their response gets slower and slower.
Adequate
by Katy Burke on 2018/11/02 00:54
Let me start by saying my extremely hectic life has gotten a lot more organized with this Outlook Account. The app itself can perform most of the basics that the web version can. A major improvement that they should work on is the calendar section of the application. On the web, when you make a new event you can categorize it, change its color, and other additional features that aid in quick location / identification of events documented. In the application, there is a limited amount of things you can do: you cannot change which calendar it’s saved on, cannot classify into categories, cannot change an events color, cannot view the schedule in any other color (this means that even if you have separate categories / colors on the desktop version, the application shows it all as one color), and etc. If they improved this feature, it would be almost as perfect as the desktop version of Outlook is!
The Basics
by Datvivar on 2021/02/22 21:48
So the app itself is straightforward - it connects easily to your email - you swipe left, delete something. You can click and look at your calendar. You click an email - it is read. It gives you notifications about the number of new emails. All in all, it is great in the most basic aspects. Like, if I want to visually wait for an email to come in to respond, I can leave this up on my tablet while I work on other stuff on my main computer. It is a second screen. 10/10. Where this falls short is when you want to do something more than monitor your email. Want to search for an email? Cannot really do that by categories or anything. Trying to find a sent email? Prepare for a chore to try to remember if that is even possible... is it worth looking on the internet to try to figure out how to navigate this thing? Or will I just use my actual computer/email? So there you have it. Great for the basics, but not for much else.
Average and not as good as Apple native Apps
by docole01 on 2020/12/14 14:49
I like the integration. Takes some getting used to for Focussed v Other emails, BUT it fails because all day appointments are treated like meetings and it won’t allow you to change the dates from the app. If the dates were right that wouldn’t be an issue but they are not synching from the desktop properly. They come across a day early, so I’m left scratching my head why Thanksgiving would be on a Wednesday. This is the second time I’ve tried to use Outlook for iOS. While it works great on my Mac, it just does not measure up on my iPhone or on my iPad. It is slower than Apples built Ins and takes too much tweaking to set up. I’ve used it for over a month and I’m taking it off all iOS devices because of the slowness. I want to see my calendar and emails instantaneously when I open their hosting apps and this app fails that miserably. It’s got good features but for me this slowness is too much to endure. I’m leaving my earlier rating at 3 stars. App is average.
Finding older messages.
by CHRIS71384 on 2020/07/29 19:55
I find that e-mails sent that hit my inbox,that I have replied to, are then only available in my sent folder. I don’t believe that should be the case. I think word search and recovery of past e-mails could be improved upon... Sometimes it takes too long to find certain e-mails. Ex: If someone e-mailed me at 1:15 3 weeks ago on a certain date, I can’t go back to that date and find the e-mail in my inbox if I replied to since then. Also, if I check my sent folder, it is difficult to find it sometimes through name search more often than not. Also, when I do find the e-mail, sometimes the whole thread is not there with attachments.. Lastly, I think copying and pasting PDFs from one e-mail into a new e-mail thread could be easier. In fact, having the ability to do that with multiple e-mails, all through Outlook in the phone or tablet would be ideal. Aside from that I enjoy it. Thanks
Almost Perfect
by egremi05 on 2019/11/02 01:36
Robust set of features of power users, like email scheduling, a smart focused inbox system, unified calendar management, etc. are indispensable for today’s business users. The app is clearly the best overall mail management app available, but is also clearly lacking in some key areas: • Search functionality is incredibly limited and notoriously unreliable • Push notifications typically arrive well in advance of the actual messages driving the alert • E-mail signatures cannot be customized with HTML, Rich Text, or logos • Opening attachments is virtually impossible and requires several “Try Again” reload attempts, with a (generously speaking) 20% success rate • Outlook seems to caches passwords but fails to update them across devices, meaning users of iPad and iPhone will frequently experience account lockouts upon password reset New feature suggestions with overwhelming support seems to be largely ignored by the developers or, at best, are prioritized lower than less useful functionality. All in all, this is a fantastic app for email management with Exchange, Office 365, and other Enterprise mail systems; but its serious lack of other meaningful features renders it suitable only for casual business correspondence. Without more comprehensive message formatting functionality, and until the loading of attachments is repaired, this app deserves only four stars.
Well it used to be great
by -Glen- on 2019/09/03 21:44
After an update a bit over a month ago this app has become nearly useless. It all started with images not automatically loading in some messages which was completely random. I found if I expanded the To/From field by tapping it the images would load. Also exiting the message and opening the message caused the images to load. Support had me try resetting my account multiple times from within the Outlook app, updating to two new versions, uninstalling and reinstalling, disconnecting and reconnecting my account and nothing worked. I now constantly receive updating notifications on the bottom of the app that seemingly hang. Opening email hangs more often than not without even loading text. I’ve had no problems with the iOS default mail app, Outlook online, and the Office 365 PC Outlook application. Very disappointing since it previously worked so well. Finally support responded by noting the issue and closing the case with no solution or work around. I pay for Office 365 yearly and this is the support I receive???

Garbage
by garrett_w314 on 2021/06/10 04:46
Title says it all. I constantly lose emails that I’m looking for, often I just don’t receive them at all, at least according to the app. I can see these lost emails when opening other mail apps but not in this one. If an email is over one week old, there is a good chance that even when I go searching for it, I won’t be able to find it anywhere in this app. I can’t find it when searching for the sender, the content, or even the exact subject line. It’s ridiculous that I have to keep another app on my phone to manage other emails, I wouldn’t use this at all if I could. Don’t get this app until they fix their garbage sorting system, and the apparent “deletion” that comes every so often. I can’t express my irritation with this app enough.

Searching on the app is terrible. Also when attaching it should be easier to pair the app with your OneDrive and not have to go 3 different places to attach something from one drive. Overall it is a good app, but could be a lot easier and is not a complete replacement for iOS mail app yet.

The email service I get goes through Outlook… so opinions to not use are non-existent. If this app isn’t freezing, it just plain isn’t working entirely.

Trying to paste copied text into an email has become very difficult
by Chuck Ef on 2021/06/08 15:04
I used to be able to tap a couple of times to paste some text that I had copied. The app was updated recently (June 2021) and now I tap tap tap tap … maybe the paste option shows up, maybe not, but I was tapping so it’s gone again if it did appear … tap tap tap … oh there it is! This is tedious and troublesome to say the least.

Always says “Updating”.
by unhappy user 345 on 2021/06/07 20:55
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.

Leave it to Microsoft and/or Apple to break an app for users of older devices and trap us in update-download-error loops. “Our companies are worth billions, and so are our executive officers. Although/because you’re not, we demand you replace working devices and give us what little money you have to buy new ones, so that our billions might quickly become trillions before you die penniless anyway.” It almost qualifies as bullying at this point.

Remove ads from my inbox
by EmptyBurger on 2021/06/06 15:42
Microsoft just added ads directly into the outlook inbox. Not spam emails, a separate row permanently at the top of the inbox that rotates advertisements that are formatted similar to incoming email. It’s insidious, invasive, and unacceptable. I am assuming this does not affect Office 360 customers because of course it wouldn’t. I will pay you to remove these ads, but removing ads is not a service that I’m willing to subscribe to.

Needs Tasks and Notes
by psmith2100 on 2021/06/05 14:21
Outlook should include Tasks and Notes just like the desktop version especially for accessing corporate accounts. It’s ridiculous that the separate apps To Do and OneNote are required. MobileIron Email+ integrates email, contacts, calendar, tasks, and notes into a single app. Surely Microsoft can do this.

by I dont like this either on 2021/06/05 05:23
This app is pretty good, but has a pretty degraded online website which is unfortunate when you are without your phone and need to sign in with a foreign computer. Other than that you need to have a Microsoft account to log in which makes it more complicated that it needs to be. I also have to log back into my account which is very annoying and unnecessary. Gmail is much more seem less, and compatible with my everyday life. Literally any other email platform for that matter is leagues in front of outlook. Pretty disappointed

A series of unfortunate events
by Dismals criticism on 2021/06/04 20:45
The following is real but all names will be false: I was going through the week in May when I had to make a 1 minute video for my final. It was worth 10% of my grade so I was taking my time in preparing it. When I finished. I tried to submit it using our website but it was impossible to get videos through there so I used outlook. You can’t even get a 15 second clip though there I realized and I was getting desperate. I had a last ditch idea to upload it to YouTube and email the link. Outlook decided to glitch at the worst possible time and make the sent notification and having a broken link. This is fun, life is fun, have a nice day.

Trouble sharing webpages to email
by Nunyabiz1234567 on 2021/06/04 08:38
I generally like The Outlook app, but the latest update does not include the ability to use the iOS share function. This has been standard in the past, if you want to email someone a link to a webpage from a browser or a news app, for example. The option to do so no longer appears anywhere, which is beyond aggravating. It took my emailing customer service three times to get a response, which was simply, “Oh hey, is there still a problem?” UPDATE: After I set Outlook as my default email client (Settings > Outlook > Default Mail App), this functionality seems to have returned. No thanks to Outlook “support.”

by P Ro, yup on 2021/06/03 16:07
In the mobile app it is very hard to clean out your mailbox. For example, when you search for a sender you cannot select the emails or swipe them for deletion. Instead you must leave the search/sort screen and go back to the main mailbox in order to select or swipe for deletion. It is very annoying. But for the most part it is a stable and bug free app that lets you easily access email; it just is lacking several features which should be easy to implement, such as deleting from the search/sort screen.

Help: App keeps crashing
by Paajohn on 2021/06/03 14:11
I rated 2 star to get some much needed help. The app has been crashing upon launch for 11 days now. I’ve deleted cache, deleted and reinstalled over 30x!. I’ve even updated to beta iOS and still persist. I also reset on all devices, deleted and reinstalled but its still not working. Was desperate enough to even do a factory reset to my phone and it stop not working. I don’t know what else to do. HELP!

Great app, but isolated from iOS
by JPdarling9 on 2018/10/02 02:42
I really like the integration of the outlook app with Outlook on my Windows 10 PC, OWA and my Mac. The experience and functionality are very similar between platforms which make it easy for me to switch between them and still be productive. My biggest problem with the Outlook on iOS though is that it’s completely isolated from the rest of iOS. I understand there are some limitations with this, and maybe some more so on the SDK side of things rather than Microsoft’s, but it’s a bit frustrating that when I try to make a call directly from Phone, I don’t have the option to search through my outlook contacts. Or that when I see an email address on a website that I’m not presented with an option to write that email within the Outlook App. I’m able to share the ‘mailto:...’ link to a blank email in outlook, but cannot compose an email to that email address. The same extends for calendar. I would love to be able to see my calendar events from outlook in the calendar app, just as a kind of unifying calendar app. I know that I can setup my Office 365 account within the accounts pane in settings, but then I’m defeating the purpose of using outlook.
for school or work whatever it’s worth downloading
by What is Life! on 2020/11/03 16:53
I use it for school I have an outlook account that I sign into and without logging into my computer I can take outlook wherever and whenever. Their are downfalls using this app and one of them is........that if you have a signature that you put in some emails and others you don’t there is no way to put a signature in your email in Outlook app which I don’t mind but then again I thought all your capabilities that you have online or app on computer you would have in the app for your phone. Another downfall I think is that you can’t say a email is “low important or high importance” I again for me that’s not super important but it would be nice to have on the app for your phone. There are plenty other things you can’t do on the app for your mobile device but you can do on the desktop app for your computer or laptop or pc. Other than, I like using the app and reading emails that come in without running to my computer to reply or even just read a single message I can be away from my computer and use my phone while I’m on the go doing other things that are little more important than sitting at home waiting for a email to come in thinking that’s the only way I can respond and receive messages from Outlook.
Disjointed Functionality
by Phanoteus on 2020/07/23 17:03
It seems that Outlook routinely "forgets" your mail accounts, even when using Microsoft's own Exchange-based accounts (Outlook, Hotmail). Why is this? Why does Outlook have to refresh all of your mail locally almost every time you open it? There will even be a numerical badge indicating unread messages, but when you open Outlook, you will be notified that Outlook has "found" accounts on your system (accounts that you have, of course, already added to Outlook) and you will be prompted to add these accounts again. The standard Apple iOS Mail app actually seems to manage Microsoft's own mail accounts better than Microsoft's email app. How can this be? Is Apple doing sometime here to hobble non-Apple email apps (as they do with non-Apple mobile browsers) or has Microsoft not been able to figure out how to develop native iOS applications? I'm inclined to think it's the latter, because other non-Apple email apps do seem to be able to retain email account continuity. It's a shortcoming only for the Outlook email client. I keep trying to use Outlook as a mobile email client for my Microsoft email accounts and I always end up uninstalling it and reverting to the Apple app or some other third-part email app. It's a shame, really. Google's Mail app works pretty well for Gmail. Microsoft's Outlook app doesn't work well for Microsoft email. What's going on here?
Pretty Good
by Ezera Catt on 2020/10/08 21:32
I’d give it an 4.5 if I could, but it’s not a four. I’d like it if it was easier to figure out at first how to access other folders such as trash and drafts—or maybe I’m just slow. I like how you can change what the slide function has—I have it set to delete which is super helpful and I wish the apple mail app had. I use both apps with Microsoft OutLook for my school email. I also like the computer version as well. Both versions of the app can (and do) remind me of events I have in my Microsoft calendar (I forget their name, if it has one). This is really helpful as my high school is using teams during the whole pandemic-so I get reminded before school starts, towards the end of classes I dislike, and before lunch ends that I have class which is really helpful. I’ll also mention that you can turn this off—for one or all events—and change the amount of time beforehand that it reminds you at (15 or 5 minutes beforehand for example). I still will use google as my main email because I already am—it isn’t better enough in the ways it is to change. I don’t think it is worse per say that google/apple email apps/websites. Hope this helps!
I weep for everyone who has to use his on iOS.
by felicidades79 on 2019/09/01 20:30
This is the worst app that I have on my phone. Typically I don’t keep apps that I absolutely hate, but since I have no alternative to using this horrible thing, I haven’t removed it. This pathetic thing has caused problems for me professionally. It takes less time for me to boot up the computer and check my calendar and then it does for me to even make my calendar showing this out. Hoping out an email literally takes as long as it would to write a letter and put it in the mail. Smoke signals will be better than this app. I can’t even open my calendar to understand what kind of meetings I have for the day because this app loads every single calendar I have shared to me and freezes every time I click a button. This is horrible. Don’t know why Microsoft insists upon upgrading things to be absolutely terrible. Even more I can’t understand why the entire professional world forces everyone to use Outlook. Gross. Even worse, it’s been out for a year already and you’ve done nothing to fix it, it’s gotten worse if anything. I’d be fired if I was this bad at my job.
Very simple email app
by nammai25 on 2020/08/08 14:00
I have used numerous email applications in the past, but Outlook really is the best of them all, period. There are a lot of features here that I can’t fathom in either Gmail or Yahoo Mail, such as calendar integration, syncing with multiple devices (including computers), and a simple user interface. While I heavily use Gmail on a day-to-day basis, I think that Microsoft really pays off when it comes to this functional app. I don’t want to screw Redmond if they have missed anything worthwhile or important, but I am happy with the work that the Outlook team has put into it. In conclusion, please download this app if you can, and enjoy a simple, refreshing email experience. (The only flaw I have encountered so far? Well, as far as I can tell you, there have been a lack of features from the web app of Outlook, and you have to sign in there to access them. Only the mobile app has several features. But, otherwise, as I have said, I am content with that.)
User friendliness and efficiency needs improvement
by ritzoni on 2019/10/13 09:30
So when you use gmail you can do a search and it will bring up emails specifically from the word you searched. For example, if you search for Apple Pay it will pull up emails from Apple Pay first. If you do the same search in outlook it will give you all emails that include those words as the sender, subject, mention, etc. This means you have to navigate through a list of unimportant emails to get to the one you want if you don’t give up in utter disappointment in the process. If that’s not frustrating enough when you write an email and it goes past a certain line you better hope you can type really well because you won’t be able to see past that line. I would have to stop scroll up and check the sentence, correct it blindly because it toggles back down where it can’t be seen and continue typing. So I started writing in other apps like gmail and forwarding it to outlook or doing a copy paste and forwarding it to my recipient if it was a longer message. That is not how I want to send my emails but outlook hasn’t seemed to be able to figure out how to make it work. Thus I have several apps for emails. Ugh
Extremely basic, can’t organize mail
by ggianop on 2020/03/03 05:24
This is a terrible implementation of outlook. It’s only good for basic reading & writing of simple emails. I can’t manage folders other than the ability to create new folders at the top level of the folder hierarchy. I can’t create a hierarchy of folders. God forbid you used Outlook for windows to create a folder hierarchy in your mailbox; it can’t be edited, new folders can’t be created within this hierarchy, and there is NO WAY to delete any folders in this app. (The native Apple Mail app is more functional with this regard than MS’ own app.) The only other reason I’d use this app over Apple Mail client is to retain the ability to create other types of outlook / exchange documents in folders. But, alas, the authors have removed this feature too. No more notes, postings, or other document types. So now I have to email things to myself and move them into folders when I want to use exchange to organize my online documents & notes; and that means sending notes through email which is often a security risk I was never exposed to before. But, then again, since I can’t do folder Mgmt, I’m better off using Apple Mail so I can at least manage where and how I store my info with my folder hierarchy.
The only thing worse than this app is their customer service
by Coppercosmo on 2019/01/04 21:42
I’m trying to use this app to access my work email from home. The app has continually deleted my entire inbox for no consistent reason I can figure out. I will open a new email and it will delete the email while I’m reading it and then my entire inbox. My inbox on my work computer will still be intact, but any email I attempted to open in the app will be missing. When I contacted customer service through the app they told me it simply wasn’t possible that the app was deleting emails and never responded again. When I attempted to email customer service on my work computer it said their customer service email address is undeliverable. I missed a very important email from my boss this morning while out sick, and even drove into work to try and see if I could access the email there to find nothing. I very well might loose my job over this and their customer service frankly does not care. If you can avoid using Microsoft (which I know is impossible) do all you can to stay away from them. They are a heartless company, and their substandard products will not only make your life hell, their customer service department seems to get joy out of your pain. If I could give them zero stars I would!
God Forbid You Have to Rest Your Password
by Thanatos XIII on 2019/08/07 04:54
I was notified today that my account was disabled for “suspicious activity.” No explanation of that activity - just directions to reset my password. Tried resetting using the request form which asked for a previous password, the email address of my previous sent email and the subject line of the previous sent email, etc. Now, if I could remember my password, I wouldn’t be trying to reset it! Anywho, send the form to wherever it goes after answering the questions to the best of my ability only to be sent something saying they couldn’t verify it was really me!!! Finally got on a chat with support and was basically told “for security purposes” staff can not enable an account. When I asked how they can disable an account with no explanation and without being able to enable it, I was told to create another account... 🤬. Now I can’t correspond with my attorney via email or send anything from this account. It’s 10 levels of frustrating and has convinced me to stop using this service and to make sure everyone I talk to knows how stupid this “recovery” system is and that your account can end up disabled with no explanation or viable means to reset your password. Just a hard lesson in frustration and a waste of time.
Poor Features Compared To Others
by S_C_U_B_A_Steve on 2019/01/11 16:15
Let me first say I do like Outlook on a web platform and on Microsoft’s system - however, we changed over to IPad and IOS because of the Windows phone discontinuation. This APP has been a bugger since I set it up. I have reloaded it 2 or 3 times in the last couple of months because it fails to send- despite correct settings through our broadband supplier. Now, I can receive mail but will not send even though it worked fine for about 2 weeks - no settings changes. Besides that, the app has a very basic signature line and hardly customizable, no mail read receipts. This would be handy because I have many emails that show in the “Sent” folder that didn’t go anywhere. I understand we use this as an interface, but I shouldn’t get a banner showing a new email and have to wait 5-10 minutes for it to actually show up in the inbox. Support is via ticket not live and I have waited 20+ hours at times to get a response. Personal email is one thing, but for a business.. can’t have it. There are other things however I believe i have typed enough. Version 3.5 at the moment. Again, I enjoy outlook on a Microsoft system or as used via web - but this app and it’s updates/features for IOS are lacking.
Only one month of storage? Seriously?
by Jeff DeWitte on 2020/07/26 20:07
I don't know about the rest of you but I use this app on my iPhone for business. It has a very limited amount of storage space and I received quite a few emails. I'm only able to access emails dating back one month. No help from tech-support and I see that many others have suggested an improvement to the developers. No response. Typical Microsoft behavior. They will always think they're better and smarter than anybody else. Part of the problem is that they don't listen. That arrogance and lack of adaptation to changing behavior is what is making their company fade. The only way to access these older emails is to use the web-based browser on my desktop. This is an absolutely ridiculous alternative just simply having an app that would allow you to use local storage on your device to archive and back up your emails for easier access on the go. I'm not sure why they have such limited storage. I have tons of free storage using my yahoo email dating back to the late 90s! Absolute crap. If you can avoid this ridiculousness please find another email client to serve your business needs. And Microsoft - I hope you burn in hell.

The app has worked great since I got it last year, especially for school. But recently it’s stopped sending me notifications for some emails which has caused me to miss several emails and dead-lines. It’s too late for me at this point so please fix this issue. I don’t know if it’s because I had 2 inboxes from 2 different school emails or what, but this problem has caused me a lot of stress and I’d prefer it not happen in the future. Edit: The issue that I believed was originally occurring is not the only one. It appears the reason I am not getting notifications for emails is because these emails aren’t appearing in my inbox until days later. For example, several emails I received on the 30th of July did not appear in my inbox until today. I did not get any notifications for any emails on that 30th. This is really frustrating because I’ve received emails from university faculty who have been sending and requesting information and it is really creating a huge hassle for me and causing more stress than is needed. Maybe this is something I need to talk to my school about? If it is please let me know.
Frustrating App
by rjsarles on 2020/08/18 15:26
This has to be one of the most irritating email apps I have ever used. It does remedy some of my issues with iOS email, but several things drive me crazy. I get several longer emails a day, newsletters and such, and as I am scrolling down the email it just stops with a “read more” button. It then opens the email again and returns you all the way to the top. So then I have to scroll all the way back to where it left off. If you need to switch apps for a second and return to finish the email you are reading? You guessed it. It returns you all the way back to the top and you have to scroll all the way back down. Accidentally close the window?Right again! Scroll all the way to the bottom, press the “read more” button which returns you to the top, then scroll all the way back down where you left off. There SO MANY ways they could easily remedy this but a simple one would be to have a button at the top of the email to open it in its own window. I have other issues, like not being able to create subfolders to the inbox without doing it on a laptop, but that’s enough complaining for one review.
No drag and drop?
by Dvlrbbt on 2020/07/03 01:22
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.
What was wrong w a chronological inbox?
by JackH959 on 2021/01/11 18:33
Hi - Ive recently noticed emails “missing” from my inbox, which is a result of an update, apparently. Rather than having multiple emails from the same sender visible, they are all condensed into one, despite “organization by thread” turned off. Unless I want to reply back to the latest email, finding a previous email can be a chore, as the emails “organized” within this thread that apparently isnt a “thread” arent always in chronological order. Sometimes newer emails are at the top, sometimes at the bottom, and clicking on the “...” is always required to scroll the conversation to figure out if im looking at the correct message. It’s a total waste of time and I cant see any reason why anyone would want to have to go through this effort to find 1 email, when the previous method involved just scrolling and opening it. I strongly dislike this “improvement” and wish I could revert to a previous version of this app.
Terrible for GSuite Accounts
by kw.squid on 2019/01/14 04:08
I’ve been a dedicated user of this app for several years and have been pretty satisfied, until recently. I started a business, got a gsuite account for it, and when I started sending mail from iOS Outlook, all of the mail from the gsuite accounts would be routed to spam by my customers email providers. At first, I thought it must be my new email address...then I tried sending mail directly from gmail on safari. No problem - no emails routed to spam. Then I downloaded Edison mail (thinking maybe it’s a third party app thing?!) and sent an email. Again, no problem - no emails routed to spam. I tried iOS outlook again...and my email got sent to spam. I reported it to the customer service team, and they brushed it off saying it wasn’t their problem. I beg to differ if the emails I send from your app get flagged as spam by recipients and yet the exact same email sent by a different app isn’t flagged by spam...I think that is your problem! And to top it off, to tell me that they won’t do anything about it, is doubly annoying. I’m removing outlook from my phone and recommend anyone with business gsuite accounts to stear clear!
FIX CALENDAR REMINDERS
by Brosef87 on 2018/12/11 22:29
i'm not giving this app more than 1 star until you guys fix Calendar reminders that were created on the desktop version of outlook but somehow are not able to sync on to this mobile version. Thats a crucial part of a calendar app, is it not? UPDATE: calendar issue fixed but this app is still completely useless if I can't log in with One Touch. I have to completely reboot my phone each time it starts throwing an error. This is an enterprise app how are you guys allowing this to happen. Still one star because I can't even enter the darn app. ONE-YEAR LATER UPDATE: this app still is unfortunately unreliable. For most professionals, calendar appointments are extremely important in their day-to-day business schedule. There are NOT ENOUGH notification capabilities through this app to remind people of upcoming appointments. My other calendar app, Calendars by Readdle, that I use for my personal life, I can set multiple reminders at 1 day, 30 minutes, 15 minutes, and 5 minutes before an important appointment so I can feel confident that I NOT MISS that crucial meeting. Unfortunately that type of functionality is missing with Outlook.
So good in some areas and 1990 in others.
by NebraskaJer on 2017/12/11 23:55
Hello, I love the outlook app and I need to use it on a day to day basis. Some of the items like calendar events and sending notifications is great in parts but lack in editing. First off. Why is there no copy and paste in Outlook. I had a whole email typed up and I needed to input a link. So what would I have to do? Copy and paste it in. Nope. I have to go to safari and click share and then outlook so I can send a link in outlook. Well then when I get in outlook I have to retype my message or just paste in the other one right. Nope. Paste does not work from previous to new message. So I have to manually copy something by hand. Link or original message. Come on Microsoft. Make copy and paste work the. You get a solid 4. Add some polish and sub folder notifications and some editing tools you will have a 5 Star app again. Please fix these little flaws. You have office and should be able to make a solid app. Now let’s make it happen. Thanks.
Contacts emails going to Junk folder
by EveningStarrr on 2020/09/21 23:29
There is something wrong with this email platform of outlook. It used to work fine and I’ve been using outlook and msn email programs and email addresses for years but now it’s putting important business mail in the junk mail folder continuously. These are email addresses and people that I have put in my contacts and have continuously told the program they weren’t Junk. These are important work emails and some I have missed or had trouble finding. I’ve had to tell work that my email isn’t working right and to resend things. Sometimes something I searched and found yesterday won’t come up today. Sometimes the only way to find a reply to my sent email is to look at my sent folder to see their replies. That’s a trick that I learned because they’ll combine your sent with its replies. People ask me what I’m using outlook for, that they’ve never heard of it and that it must be cheap and faulty. They tell me to switch. I tell them “How do you not know MSN and Outlook?”. I have to find a new email platform because this one has turned bad and it means change my email address that I’ve had for 12 years or so and I’m not too happy about that.
I hate outlook
by bbaacc123184 on 2019/02/07 17:31
This is the worst email app I’ve ever used. Unfortunately, I have to use it because my university uses it. First of all, it’s the ugliest email app. There’s no contact photos shown next to an email, like in gmail of yahoo mail, so it’s hard to differentiate between who is sending you an email. All the emails blend together into a born blob of black and white, making me check this email the least. Also, you can’t search a phrase or sender and then select multiple emails to delete them. That’s half the reason I even use the search function. Perhaps you can delete emails this way on a laptop, but I mainly check my email on my phone, so it’s egregiously inconvenient. In addition the focused and other email tabs are so stupid. The app just arbitrarily organizes them with no knowledge of what emails are actually important to you and which ones aren’t. As a result, I often don’t see important emails in a timely manner because they go into the other tab. Checking my email shouldn’t have this many complications, and being able to delete my emails by search should be an option. Please fix your dysfunctional app. I’m hoping I never have to have another outlook email after I graduate.
Apple Watch App is a Fail
by projekZER0 on 2018/12/14 17:15
The Outlook iOS app gets 4.5 stars in my opinion. I actually think I like it better than Apple’s mail and calendar apps. It does everything those apps do with a slicker UI and a little more fidelity. It loses half a star because it is not quite as simple to setup and required my to create an iCloud email to sync my iCloud calendar. Where is fails miserably is the Apple Watch app. Basically, the calendar function doesn’t work at all. It always says I have no events when I have a packed calendar pretty much every day. Randomly an event will show up, but then it’s gone the next minute. It never shows events on the complication on the home screen. Also, the number icon to show how many new or unread emails changes between a number and zero every few minutes even though nothing in my inbox has changed. There is some kind of sync issue between the IOS app and the Apple Watch App. I’ve tried everything to remedy it. My Apple Watch is how I most frequently access my calendar. So regardless of how good the Outlook app is, as a package it cannot replace Apple’s apps until they can fix the Apple Watch app.
Almost 100 percent.
by Raym no2 on 2020/08/12 13:42
I keep reading that Outlook may still not play well with all the other apps available - and, to be honest, we should not expect that it should. There are just too many apps with too many formats and offerings to contend with. However, it seems like one or two niceties of the other major apps like “Fantastical” that would be very helpful. One example is the ability to set multiple a times for reminders before an event. It may sound trivial but it is not if you are planning for a birthday, vacation or other important event. Outlook is truly a great application for IOS and I would highly recommend it to all. You have to really use it to appreciate it. If I were just starting to use Ios it would be my first down load. It is truly a 5 star app - Thank you Microsoft! However, for me to start the laborious task of transferring all my data to Outlook for IOS, Outlook needs a couple of small enhancements to push it over the top.
Not possible to access iCloud files
by WheezyG on 2017/11/20 18:01
My employer uses Microsoft outlook for email. This would not be a problem if not for this apps inability to attach documents I store on my iCloud. All my devices (watch, phone, laptop, iPads) are apple devices. I store all of my important files on iCloud. If I am replying to an email and want to send an attachment, I’m out of luck. When I click on attach, the Files section does not include iCloud. I decided to have my Google Drive sync my most heavily used work-related folder on my iCloud. But when I try to set up that account under Files, it fails and I get a notification to contact support. Support seems really communicative however. They are definitely interested in helping me make this work. Unfortunately, when I see a support notification pop up, I cannot even open the conversation without first trying to set up my Google Drive, then having it fail, then seeing the pop up with a link to contact customer support. There is no way to access the customer support chat without forcing something to go wrong then opening up the chat window. This is a definite flaw in the iPad version of this app!
Buggy when used with Google Gsuite accounts
by Wayt on 2020/02/07 19:00
Outlook works very well with my Exchange and Office 365 accounts. They claim to support Gmail, and the basics do work but when used with Google’s Gsuite email accounts, the app still has serious bugs. Very frequently, for example, when I reply to a message on my Gsuite account, Outlook shows “mail sent” (and does send the reply) but then marks the reply as a draft. So my inbox is littered with threads that are falsely marked as having unsent drafts. Even more frustrating, every so often Outlook won’t let me complete a reply to a message. I start typing, but after 5-10 seconds, the app suddenly closes the text input window, obliterating what I’ve written. It does not save a draft, so I can’t pick up again from where I left off. I now have several of theses messages in my inbox that Outlook refuses to let me reply to. There is nothing unusual at all about those plain-text messages. Outlook support suggested resetting the account and restarting the app. I did, and neither of the bugs above went away. My advice if you use Gsuite mail accounts—find a different mail app.
Outlook Email
by MelanieAMeyer on 2021/05/31 16:43
I just purchased a new iPhone 12 Pro Max and I’ve setup 3 email accounts through the Outlook iOS app with ease which is way more than I can say about the Mail app that came preinstalled on the iPhone! I was able to setup one email account through the preinstalled Mail app and that’s where it ended. After trying and trying, even after using the step by step instruction (hours I’ll never get back) to add multiple email accounts to the preinstalled IOS Mail app I finally gave up and downloaded the Outlook app. Not only is it stupid easy to add multiple email accounts, it took mere minutes to do so. I’m sticking with Outlook! If it takes that much time and effort to setup multiple email accounts through the preinstalled Mail app with a person who is more than capable of understanding the technology and process to do so says a lot about the app. I encourage everyone to install the Outlook app, you won’t be disappointed.
So Much Better Than the Native iPhone Mail App
by markedwjohnson on 2020/08/07 16:24
I had been meaning to try the Outlook app for iOS for a couple of years, moved to O365 and MS Intune necessitating my move to Outlook for iOS; fine by me. The learning curve has been minimal. I haven’t found a way to move between emails without going out to my inbox or other containing folder, but I haven’t had time to google that, either. I just wish there were up/down arrows within an email allowing me to move up/down a message within the parent folder. I like that it feels more professional in UI appearance than apps aimed at consumers in general; other than the one feature I complained about it lacking above. I haven’t tried this yet, but it appears that I can even set my OOO message, or update it, from the app! Now THAT’S a level of integration with our Exchange server that wasn’t even possible with any other mail app on the iPhone or iPad. That is awesome! I can’t wait to find out what other little nuggets it has that I haven’t discovered yet!
Looks Nice but☹️
by vishwarupa on 2019/11/02 13:54
This app seems clunky and obsolete lacking fluidity, user interface and basic functionality preventing user from easily executing simple, everyday tasks. Cannot SELECT ALL and DELETE emails in Trash Bin—the mobile app only selects 7 emails at a time; the Trash Icon is not easily seen at top of screen but rather I had to scroll through 90 emails to locate the Trash Icon at the bottom of the list of emails—highlighting 7 email maximum, scrolling a long list to get to the icon at the bottom of lengthy list of emails is not practical and requires an inordinate amount of time and steps to expedite a simple function. The REPLY field appears at the bottom of an email rather than easily, conveniently above an incoming email. The only readily available function choices appear to be Focus & Filter—user has to log online to use the few Settings options. The Search magnifying glass does not appear to be readily/easily available. The ONLY reason I use the app is I am unable to email a Word file unless from within the app. Simple, basic tasks are not straightforward some inaccessible on iOS Xs Max and iPad Pro.
Terrible, just as bad as yahoo web
by LynleyGirl on 2017/12/12 23:18
Thought I’d get a better email client. Think again. (1) you will not be able to connect the Apple default contacts app., in fact, there’s nothing much you can connect to in this app. It loses email. Deleting them right out for various actions you take. There is no waiting period if u accidentally delete a mail- it’s gone. (2) don’t save anything to draft folder. It will save & alter it right where u are, then put a copy of the header - that is unalterable - in the draft folder. You will not b able to change who the email is primarily addressed to, which will b you!! So insane. (3) I just pulled up the “give feedback “ form in the app, & somebody else’s review was in it. I know they weren’t using it as example- b/c it was entitled “Outlook Dogfood”. Wish I’d seen that b4 I lost 2 important email today. Advised them this was a privacy issue- but... (4) if u get this app, suddenly, u will drown in user-tailored spam. I got maybe 5 a day b4 switching, now like 60-70. Not a coincidence. (5) don’t expect to b able to attach anything easily - nothing u want to attach anyw. There are no options for file programs to download... the list goes on and on.
Better than Apple's native mail app
by Flexjordan on 2018/10/10 00:06
I admit I was never impressed with the prior version of OWA. But this app is better than Apple's mail app. I like how the conversational threads lay out, the Focused conversations seem fairly intelligent in terms of dividing my email between important and non-important, and I love the ability to access attachments I have previously opened without having to find the original email that contained the attachment. Finally, this app seems to have magically saved my iPhone's battery life once I delinked my Exchange account from the iPhone default mail app. Only drawback is I couldn't figure out how to keep my contacts and delete my old Mail account entirely, so I had to re-connect my account in Settings in order to restore contacts and keep them sync'ed. Update 2 years later... this app just gets better and better. Thank you to the team involved for making the best mail app on the market.
Makes you LESS Productive
by @smaedli on 2019/04/07 21:04
The application workflow logic is a tragic mess, which has made Outlook an utter pain to use on a daily basis. Need to look at one email message? Good luck. Threading adds a ridiculous number of taps to view anything. Need to print or PDF one message in a thread? Nope. In fact, one can’t even successfully print a whole thread (and yes, some people in business have a need to print something sometimes). Calendaring is pretty awful and keeps getting worse. Mobile IU design or a logic to settings? Nope. Not exactly sure what paradigm is being used, but it certainly isn’t a model for people who run and gun communicate. Outlook does not reliably update, it freaks out if there’s the slightest network issue, and fails to smoothly integrate with anything. In short, if you don’t have to use Outlook, avoid this app. Like all Microsoft 365 products over the last few years, it has deteriorated into an unfathomable mess. Unfortunately, many of us (myself included) have to use it and lose hours of time each month because of its poor design tied to the wretched quagmire of the O365 cloud ecosystem.
Thank you...
by Laurence72 on 2019/09/07 12:57
This is the mail app I needed and wish I knew about it years ago. I have 4 email accounts and one is through ECPI. They use an exchange server, so guess what, yahoo mail can’t connect to it, Apple mail needs to have a password entered and a verification process is done, just to look at an email...for school. I don’t get it. Yesterday I downloaded this app and it’s already a life saver. It took a little bit for email to show up in my folders for yahoo, but I only had to verify yahoo one time when setting it up. I just finished customizing my settings and it’s even better. There’s a focused mail box thingy, I didn’t like it and it let me turn it off. I noticed you have to go through notifications and click each mail server you want notifications from, because your default is automatically selected. Oh, btw, I deleted yahoo and Apple mail apps and moved this one next to my hand receiver icon.
Great for corporate e-mail
by cchubbuck on 2020/10/23 12:57
To those who say that it is limited because it lacks integration with iOS that is exactly the point and the reason why you want this app. You can always use the built-in mail app in iOS and connect to your exchange server or office 365, however this carries some risks as your administrator can now wipe the entire phone if necessary (or on accident). With the outlook app an administrative wipe is only limited to the data in the outlook app itself it will not wipe your entire phone. THIS is the reason to use Outlook. It is a bit less convenient to have the main calendar app and the Outlook calendar for instance, but I believe the separation is worth the inconvenience. iOS 14 outlook calendar widget is here now and also works great. My only ding is the stupid ‘play my emails’ prompt. It’s turned OFF, yet Outlook asks me every launch. You need to go in and turn it on, then turn it off for it to go away. Stupid!!
Best iPhone email client
by AxMerr on 2021/04/27 12:26
I use many different emails, gmail, yahoo, and exchange and outlook for iPhone has best integration for all of them. Easy to use and follow. It also provides the focuses and unfocused inbox which is extremely useful and accurate (all my work or action related email goes to focused inbox). The search is very accurate and fast. The only thing I would improve there is that once I get the search result, to be able to have an option to select all and provide an instruction ie to delete or move to a folder, which it doesn’t allow at this time. Calendar is great too. If you are Outllook user in desktop, the mobile app version is 100x more reliable and user friendly. I no longer use the outlook for windows email client I use another one since outlook for windows is glitchy. So don’t judge the mobile app version with the performance of the windows laptop version.
Great app, but ...
by ebassily on 2020/05/07 05:10
When I delete or archive an email it takes me back to the list view rather than moving on to the next email. I should at least be given the choice of whether I like to move forward or go back to the list. Making contact pictures appear (as advertised in app pics) beside each email from them is a pain. I have been trying to make it happen for quite a bit now without success. I even copied many of my 6+k contacts to Outlook on my Mac to be on the Exchange server rather than on iCloud but it didn’t work either. I think the problem is that Outlook insists on keeping itself isolated from iOS apps and their SDKs. It doesn’t show contacts from iOS although it does show iCloud calendars. The app even doesn’t have a Contacts tab like its macOS counterpart. There is a Mail tab as well as Calendar and search tabs, but no Contacts. Even the Contacts section on the macOS app is far inferior to Apple’s stock Contacts app.
Great replacement for Mail, needs only one fix
by rebg23 on 2020/07/29 15:34
Overall I really like outlook and find it is equal to or better than Mail in virtually all respects. The reading function works amazingly well, and the overall layout and functionality is excellent. The one function I don’t like in Outlook and wish work like Mail is the undo function when I am filing and moving messages into folders. In Mail, if I move a message to the wrong folder, I can just shake the phone and and trigger the undo function to reverse the move, even several seconds later. But in Outlook, the undo is provided by a software button that appears for only a couple of seconds at the bottom of the screen. If I don’t click the button right away, the ability to undo has passed, and then I have to hope I can find the message in the wrong folder and manually re-locate it etc. Not a deal killer by any means, but if that were fixed, I would give it six stars.
Group Access in newest version
by ProfCalculus on 2018/04/28 14:50
Our university uses Office365 for email and provides us access to the suite of products it includes. Because this the web portal is how most students access their email, I decided to use a O365 group to organize my student workers with a dynamic group calendar. I'm using the O365 calendar vs a Google Calendar or any other 3rd party calendar because that would require an additional account for students. I was happy to hear that group access was going to soon be found in the outlook app, because the MS Groups app is atrocious. Well here it is, and we still have ZERO support for shared or group calendars in the app, all we get is email support, which we had for the most part anyways, because I would get group emails sent to my regular account. It seems like the only additional functionality we have gained is the ability to send a NEW group message from the app. This is VERY DISAPPOINTING. O365 actually makes it MORE DIFFICULT to manage my group. Don't get me started on the discrepancies between groups and teams, that's a rant for another day.
My performance review was affected because of multiple accounts
by HereComesTheActualReview on 2020/02/11 20:41
We all have managers who try to fit team members in bell curve. They keep looking for small things and exaggerate in performance review. I have this incident happened to me because of outlook. I have my organization (very big company $600 billion valuation) emails and outlook account on same app. On a morning I was sick and sent an email to team that I would be WFH. None of my team mates received it. The next day my Sr. Manager sent an email to team that do not work from home with out notifying. And, my colleagues over lunch said they were asked about me. I wondered and said I dropped an email too. And, I showed it. None of our colleagues received it. I myself apps developer understood what went wrong. I sent it from personal one. But I sent it to my company team GDL. WHY SHOULD OUTLOOK AUTOFILL ONE ACCOUNT’s EMAIL IDs in another one? My manager just brought this and mentioned everytime in every meetings. Managers were in always constant tension because their managers were in same. In a performance review yesterday he mentioned this and fit me in bell curve. I resigned today with out having another job. Thanks Outlook for making me realize I am with bad team. Thank you. But don’t auto fill another team’s accounts in another account. It is too dumb. Who is the product owner came up with this idea?
Miserable and Virtually Unusable Mobile App.
by Dawgduo on 2019/10/31 10:30
As a field based associate, I use my mobile email about 90% of the time. That said, my company recently switched from the extremely user-friendly, logically laid out Blackberry Work app. to the complex, convoluted and extremely cumbersome Outlook Mobile App. Once you reply to an email in the Outlook App., you can no longer see the sender’s original email they sent you, you can only see your reply unless you go into the email again and scroll down and click on “Load Message,” in which case you can see the sender’s original note, but have limited ability to forward or include attachments a second time. When I click on web links, it launches me into Microsoft Edge App. and very few of our intranet sites work (they all worked perfectly in the Blackberry Work browser). If I want to see my “forwarded” or “replied to” email, you should just be able to go into “Sent” items and see that, if you so choose, but in this app., you can only easily see your most recent forward or reply. HELP MICROSOFT!!! Please fix this to work like a normal email system. Why did you try to reinvent the wheel here?!!
Love it
by Chase McNugget on 2020/06/14 15:24
This app is way better than Gmail, I feel like this one is more simple to use, this app looks better and is more pleasing! I love the app on my Apple Watch. I really like the Focused part of outlook, I am just wondering how to make curtain senders go to Focused mailbox. You can add other email accounts beside outlook like Gmail and Yahoo and others. I like how if I put my phone in dark mode it does that with that app. There is a feature where Cortona can read your emails which I personally do not use a lot but is a great feature for accessibility and just hearing Emails while walking with my AirPods or other headphones. I was also wondering how you can make certain senders of mail go to trash like I have a eBay account and I get constant emails which I do t like but I want to keep my eBay account. Overall I would recommend this app way more than Gmail! Good job Microsoft!
Email account issues
by DurdeeBurger on 2018/02/21 13:22
I used outlook for iPhone for about past 6 months or so and generally liked it a lot more than stock mail app. Has a nice look, calendar view built in, lots of nice extras. This week my yahoo account kept asking me to sign in. Every time I sign back in it tries forever then asks me to try again with modern or legacy sign in. Doesn’t matter what you choose cuz nothing works at this point until you force close and restart. I also can’t get to my mail without addressing this as it won’t let me so I was forced to remove yahoo. I thought whatever that’s my junk mail anyway perhaps yahoo having an issue. Now it’s doing it with my gmail account. I re-signed in for it last night and now this morning it asks me again when checking my mail and even though I sign in correctly for both accounts (I get emails telling me so in other accounts about sign ins on Microsoft app), outlook keeps asking me re-sign in or remove account. Well now I’m down 2 email accounts so deleted this app and back to old reliable stock mail app.
It kind of blows compared to the capability of using the site, or other email handlers.
by Netkid_100 on 2020/08/14 16:44
I’ve used Outlook since it was Hotmail originally. This app has the least of what you need, and tries too hard to be new with a weird (Focus) switch for your inbox. Meaning I miss all types of email that it doesn’t think I’m focused on. Plus, it has spam and phishing emails filtered into the Focus section. My main issue is that I can’t find any rule setting, or block option for repeated spam mail. I blocked everyday in my Apple email app, and didn’t see as many spam messages hit my inbox until I started using this app to check the addressee and mark the message junk. Since there’s no menu, submenu, or tap/hold option to do so either. I don’t know who made this app, but it’s missing most of what makes Outlook efficient, and Outlook is getting terrible at filtering out spam/phishing/general junk emails in the last year. Might need to make the full jump to Gmail, even as a Microsoft supporter.
Email just stops working and prompts for password.
by G, Ron on 2020/07/31 04:36
On multiple iOS devices the email will just stop working and prompted for a password. When entered it doesn’t reconnect. Tried resetting the account, removing the account and re-entering, and deleting Outlook and reinstall. Nothing works. The “Contact Support” option is a total joke. Received initial response from my request immediately and I’m still waiting for a response after 24 hours. Opened another support ticket on my other iOS device and entered all the requested information for the original device and again received and initial response immediately but then nothing for hours. Then I received a response asking me to perform another test. Still waiting for the response from support. I really like Outlook when it works. I like the email, calendar, and contacts all in one place. I have been using this app for several years and on multiple devices. On multiple occasions I have had to contact support in order to get the app working again. Each time their response gets slower and slower.
Adequate

Let me start by saying my extremely hectic life has gotten a lot more organized with this Outlook Account. The app itself can perform most of the basics that the web version can. A major improvement that they should work on is the calendar section of the application. On the web, when you make a new event you can categorize it, change its color, and other additional features that aid in quick location / identification of events documented. In the application, there is a limited amount of things you can do: you cannot change which calendar it’s saved on, cannot classify into categories, cannot change an events color, cannot view the schedule in any other color (this means that even if you have separate categories / colors on the desktop version, the application shows it all as one color), and etc. If they improved this feature, it would be almost as perfect as the desktop version of Outlook is!
The Basics

So the app itself is straightforward - it connects easily to your email - you swipe left, delete something. You can click and look at your calendar. You click an email - it is read. It gives you notifications about the number of new emails. All in all, it is great in the most basic aspects. Like, if I want to visually wait for an email to come in to respond, I can leave this up on my tablet while I work on other stuff on my main computer. It is a second screen. 10/10. Where this falls short is when you want to do something more than monitor your email. Want to search for an email? Cannot really do that by categories or anything. Trying to find a sent email? Prepare for a chore to try to remember if that is even possible... is it worth looking on the internet to try to figure out how to navigate this thing? Or will I just use my actual computer/email? So there you have it. Great for the basics, but not for much else.
Average and not as good as Apple native Apps

I like the integration. Takes some getting used to for Focussed v Other emails, BUT it fails because all day appointments are treated like meetings and it won’t allow you to change the dates from the app. If the dates were right that wouldn’t be an issue but they are not synching from the desktop properly. They come across a day early, so I’m left scratching my head why Thanksgiving would be on a Wednesday. This is the second time I’ve tried to use Outlook for iOS. While it works great on my Mac, it just does not measure up on my iPhone or on my iPad. It is slower than Apples built Ins and takes too much tweaking to set up. I’ve used it for over a month and I’m taking it off all iOS devices because of the slowness. I want to see my calendar and emails instantaneously when I open their hosting apps and this app fails that miserably. It’s got good features but for me this slowness is too much to endure. I’m leaving my earlier rating at 3 stars. App is average.
Finding older messages.

I find that e-mails sent that hit my inbox,that I have replied to, are then only available in my sent folder. I don’t believe that should be the case. I think word search and recovery of past e-mails could be improved upon... Sometimes it takes too long to find certain e-mails. Ex: If someone e-mailed me at 1:15 3 weeks ago on a certain date, I can’t go back to that date and find the e-mail in my inbox if I replied to since then. Also, if I check my sent folder, it is difficult to find it sometimes through name search more often than not. Also, when I do find the e-mail, sometimes the whole thread is not there with attachments.. Lastly, I think copying and pasting PDFs from one e-mail into a new e-mail thread could be easier. In fact, having the ability to do that with multiple e-mails, all through Outlook in the phone or tablet would be ideal. Aside from that I enjoy it. Thanks
Almost Perfect

Robust set of features of power users, like email scheduling, a smart focused inbox system, unified calendar management, etc. are indispensable for today’s business users. The app is clearly the best overall mail management app available, but is also clearly lacking in some key areas: • Search functionality is incredibly limited and notoriously unreliable • Push notifications typically arrive well in advance of the actual messages driving the alert • E-mail signatures cannot be customized with HTML, Rich Text, or logos • Opening attachments is virtually impossible and requires several “Try Again” reload attempts, with a (generously speaking) 20% success rate • Outlook seems to caches passwords but fails to update them across devices, meaning users of iPad and iPhone will frequently experience account lockouts upon password reset New feature suggestions with overwhelming support seems to be largely ignored by the developers or, at best, are prioritized lower than less useful functionality. All in all, this is a fantastic app for email management with Exchange, Office 365, and other Enterprise mail systems; but its serious lack of other meaningful features renders it suitable only for casual business correspondence. Without more comprehensive message formatting functionality, and until the loading of attachments is repaired, this app deserves only four stars.
Well it used to be great

After an update a bit over a month ago this app has become nearly useless. It all started with images not automatically loading in some messages which was completely random. I found if I expanded the To/From field by tapping it the images would load. Also exiting the message and opening the message caused the images to load. Support had me try resetting my account multiple times from within the Outlook app, updating to two new versions, uninstalling and reinstalling, disconnecting and reconnecting my account and nothing worked. I now constantly receive updating notifications on the bottom of the app that seemingly hang. Opening email hangs more often than not without even loading text. I’ve had no problems with the iOS default mail app, Outlook online, and the Office 365 PC Outlook application. Very disappointing since it previously worked so well. Finally support responded by noting the issue and closing the case with no solution or work around. I pay for Office 365 yearly and this is the support I receive???
