Threaded email on iOS 10 is kinda shady. So I thought I’d give Outlook a try – very nice save one thing, contacts…
Issue: Exchange contacts are only available within Outlook on iOS – they’re not available to the iOS default Contacts app as they are when using native mail. Thus – there’s no contacts for phone or text.
Solution 1: Copy your address book from Exchange/Outlook to iOS Contacts app.
- Settings > Accounts > Account you wish to use
- Advanced Settings
- Save Contacts to Device
- Confirm your account is active in Contacts
n1: This will not give you a way to access the GAL, just a copy of your personal contacts.
n2: if you have iCloud backup enabled your contacts are now being backed up to the cloud.
Solution 2: Suck it up and go back to iOS native mail.
