Deletes my email

Kevin Holdridge

However awful Outlook is on desktop, you’re pretty much stuck with it in corporate Windows environment. So using it on mobile too kind of makes sense for convenience and consistency.

Over the last couple of years I was willing to put up with its bugs and limitations - all complicated apps inevitably have them.

However I finally bit the bullet, removed it today and switched to a separate but better apps for email, calendar, and contacts. The reason is that it yesterday (for the second time this year) deleted a year’s email. It is ridiculously easy to brush the ‘select all’ and delete icons without realising it. Before you notice, your emails are disappearing before your eyes, with the deletions being synchronised across all devices linked to your accounts. So for 2nd time this year I have wasted hours going message by message through 3 sets of recycle bins trying to work out which messages were intentionally or unintentionally deleted, and restoring accordingly. Poor for an app that is supposed to increase productivity.



The main thing wrong with this app is Microsoft’s approach to it - the interface is changed frequently and significantly, so there is a constant and boring need to re-learn how to do things.
There are any number of bugs and irritants which coyld be fixed.
The iPad app calendar takes an age to display newly entered calendar events - many minutes, which is bizarre, as newly created events appear almost instantaneously on iPhone version.
No ability to set time zone for calendar events. This facility comes and goes, as frequently as the interface is changed.
If Bing can work out the location for an event, the time zone may be set automatically, but if the location is “Mike’s office” (all the information I need to get to the event “Meeting with Mike and Jane”), then it won’t. And by the way, Jane’s office is not the same place as Mike’s office, and there are more than 30 people called either Mike or Jane in my contacts.

Downgrade from the standard iOS apps


My company used to allow us to synchronise iOS mail, calendar and contacts with their Exchange server (subject to installing a profile with a few controls). That was slick and great for productivity. Now, for some reason, they’ve forced us into using the Outlook app.

The one good thing is having a universal search which connects my contacts with related emails and meetings. Other than that, the experience is entirely worse on my iPhone 5s. Outlook is slow to start, very slow to add new appointments, clunky in the way I have to set dates and times or move appointments, buggy in synchronising contacts with the inbuilt app. My company security policy locks it down way too much, so I can’t even send an email attachment to a pdf reader app for marking up.

Reading this back to myself, I think I may have been generous with awarding 2 stars.
