    I like this app as well but what do you do with the stock app if you only want to use the outlook app? Someone said they turned off the stock app but don't know how to do that.

    Go into the settings and emails accounts and click off the email toggle.

    Ive been using this app as i have an exchange account for work and it works really well. Most people don't relize that if you tap on the month at the top of the screen when in calendar view it does give you the month view and not just the day view or agenda view. Also, it really nice being able to attach files or pics when you compossing an email instead of having to go to the file or pic first.

    I see a lot of good things coming in the future for this app.

    Just my 2 cents.....

    I agree. I, too, like using this app, although I only have my Outlook.com account configured with it. A few more useful features could make me use it as my overall Mail app. Time will tell...

    In the stock mail app, you can insert a photo or video within the mail compose window... tap/hold... the edit options appear... tap the arrow on the right end of the box... the Insert photo or video option is revealed...

    I like the idea of being able to attach files while composing but I am not finding an option to attach from Pages or Numbers, only from One Drive etc, am I missing something?

    No. You are not missing anything. There is no support for any of the iWork apps, at least from what I can tell.

    Maybe this is a bug or something, but I added a new calendar in Google and I did in on the desktop. The calendar shows up everywhere but will NOT activate and go visible in Outlook. I see the calendar listed but it won't toggle on and stay on.

    I knew you could do that with Pics and Video but i use my phone mainly for work and i have to update documents on the go and this is where the app, i feel, really comes in handy.

    It's most likely yahoo. I see more people having issues with yahoo email than any other out there.

    Basically a very nice app, but no one is mentioning that the “people” or contacts is horrible. It will not sync your contacts; it will only list the most recently used. I have been in contact with MS IOS support and they suggest looking up in your phonebook/contacts and copy and paste…..really! So because you can’t access you contacts this is a big fail! You have no way to look up someone you havent sent an email to 2 months ago. I know their name, but not in contacts, it only list the most recent, NOT all people/contacts. And yes alphabetical option would be nice.

    By the way for those trying to contact them go under settings in the app and click help. They are fairly fast in responding even though they couldn’t help w/ contacts

    I am pretty sure that the recently used contacts are listed on top followed by the main contact list, which is listed in alphabetical order.

    I uninstalled mine for a different reason, so no way to verify.

    Which email provider are you using?

    Using outlook exchange and no unfortunately all your contact will not be listed. I went back and forth with their support team. I was amazed that it would not link to your contacts or pull my files from my existing account. And no alphabetical listing, several others have also complained about this.

    They just released a minor update and to be honest I see no real difference.

    I'm starting to think that Microsoft might start strong and I use the term loosely, and then just forget about this app as they did with all apps.

    Nah. I use office and OneDrive and those apps are great with updates all the time. I'm just not feeling the email app. The native one works fine.

    Personally loving the outlook app. It has replaced the Gmail app I was using. I found the gmail app lacking. Almost night and day difference between gmail app on iOS vs android On android it was such a better app

    Anyways outlook is a huge improvement over the gmail app IMO

    Has anyone figured out how to delete contacts from the people tab. I don't have exchange, just gmail and Yahoo.
