Unified inbox for outlook on Windows 10! ❤
Outlook 365 for Windows needs a unified Inbox similar to ALL other Outlook apps. For those of us with multiple email accounts. It would be very convenient to have all emails arrive in one inbox instead of clicking the whole time through all Inboxes, which consumes a lot of time.

Please sir when
MS, PLEASE port the entire Mac outlook to windows. the Mac outlook is far superior in every way. The windows outlook is like something from 1980 in look and features. I recently switched from Mac to PC, and, having now seen the un-usability of outlook on windows for business users with multiple accounts, I will switch back, and recommend considering switching to Mac for anyone with this issue. Yes, Mac outlook has unified inbox and a lot of other features which make it very productive and easy to use.
Hope we get a unified inbox soon. I love my Surface Pro 7...but this does kinda make me miss my mac!

Surprised there is no Unified Inbox and SentBox for the latest Office 365 for PC. I have just subscribed because I'm so used to working on Outlook all these years and now this. Very Sad and hope Microsoft should bring this in on priority.
The unified inbox feature on my iPhone is great, and I think it would dramatically improve the usability of Outlook 365 on my PC.
I just (finally) upgraded from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 365!!! And...ugh!!!! First of all it's ugly with no color to differentiate spaces across the screen, but my biggest complaint (along with all of the other posters here) is that there is NO UNIFIED INBOX! I jumped twelve years into the future with my upgrade and this is what I get?? I have multiple email addresses, as all of the other posters here do, and I don't have time to be switching back and forth between inboxes. This is crazy. I'm still in my free trial month. I can't go back to 2007 (although I want to), because I'm surprised it still works on the current operating system, but I can't stay with this. I've been using Outlook for soooo long. I really don't want to have to look for a new email client, but I may have to. :( Please tell me, Microsoft, that you are working on this issue. You had it in the past, so we all know it is possible.

Why is this still so hard to do, I know you can do it with filtered views but it should be a default option by now, something like 25% of our customers would have immediate benefit from this feature.

I have just spent an hour faffing about trying to build bad versions of this, a feature which is out of the box on every other device I own. Needs doing now.

The closest you can get to a unified mailbox in Outlook 365 is to add the Inbox of each of your mail accounts to "Favorites" so they all appear - and can be sorted - in the upper left under the "New Mail" icon. This will, at least, let you click once to get to any inbox. It's not a unified inbox, but it saves you a bunch of mouse-moving.
this is crazy, surely it wouldn't take much to develop something that should of been there from the begining
This has to be a joke, right?
Microsoft's flagship email program for PCs is actually better on the Mac than on a PC.
Just when I was about to go back to giving Microsoft another try... NOPE.
Guess I'll stick with Google Docs and my other email program.
So very disappointing.
And here MS had a chance to win me back over.
Maybe in another few years I'll try again and maybe, just maybe, by then they'll allow for unified inbox on the PC.

outlook mac has this, why not windows?
This one feature is why I still use a mac as my primary machine. Microsoft is literally forcing me to use a mac when I would prefer a PC.
As a consultant, I have 13 email accounts. when I had a pc, I had to open up 13 inboxes every hour, open 13 sent when looking for something but could not remember which one I set it as etc.
outlook is unusable as it is for anyone with multiple mailboxes.
I can only assume that everyone who works for microsoft only has one email address.
OK so here is the 50th comment...

I was shocked that my iOS Outlook and Outlook for Mac support a unified inbox, but not the flagship Windows version. Why?!
I really need this feature or I'll have to go back to the web apps.
Thanks for listening
I find it maddening that this is available on my android phone and my ipad, yet it is not possible on the desktop program. This is especially annoying as our company pay for the privilege.

I raised a ticket recently to see if some action would be taken. The base support guy was great and managed to reach out to developers etc. Unified inbox is on the pad although not considered urgent and as is the case with all corporate firms, on the pad means it keeps getting pushed back due to more urgent things that arise. If feedback gets over 50 comments and 1,000 votes that will automatically increase priority
As tech guy I find this very frustrating....
I gave up and started using em client. (not at alla expensive)
Microsoft seems to still believe most people have one email for work. Nooo we don't.
And as an entrepreneur and freelancer I have many!
The same old thought of one workplace one employer is visible in the whole office 365.
Have to say the same as many others.
Its 2019 - the way we work has changed since 2000.
Make it consistent with every other Outlook on every other platform! It is 2019.
