Android Outlook App

Microsoft today released an update for Outlook.com mail app for Android devices. This new update brings in some of the most requested features such as server side search, support for aliases and more.

What’s new?

This update includes over 150 improvements, along with some new features including:

Server-side search: You can now search through all of your email, even if the messages aren’t on your phone.  If you can’t find what you’re looking for on your phone, you have a new option to search Outlook.com to find your messages.

Download all mail: Another popular request was to allow more choices for syncing your mail. We’ve added an option to let you download all your messages, regardless of how old they are (though keep in mind you can now search for messages even if they aren’t on your phone).

Support for Aliases: People love using aliases, but they want to be able to use them everywhere they use Outlook.com.  Now you can send email from all your aliases in our Android app, just like you would in the Windows 8 mail app or on the web.

New colors: Adding colors was one of our most requested additions.   We know people like to change things up and with this update you can pick from 11 colors to personalize your mail app the way you like it.

Vacation replies: Forget to set your vacation reply before you headed out?  Now you can manage your vacation reply directly in the Android app.  Just like on the web, you can choose to send the reply to everyone, or limit it to the people in your contact list.

Download it here from Play Store.

    This is long overdue, the Android app has been 3rd rate for a while ¿is it still posted by Microsoft + Seven? ¿why the extra company? you can’t even find it if you browse ”Microsoft Corporation” or ”M.S.N. China”.
