      • App asks to reset every time I open it.

        Every time I start the app I get an error that says "Reset Owa - You need to reset OWA. This will delete any data not sent to the server." Then I have to reset the app and re set up my entire email.

              • need contact sync both ways.

                When I use the dialer it doesn't pull the contacts from OWA and OWA doesn't sync with my phones contact list. This makes it useless to manager a large contact list.

                • Turn off email notification

                  It should be possible to turn off email notifications as well as calendar notifications. At our work we normally work with the computers the whole day and don't want/need to have notifications on the phone also. But it is good to have the possibility to turn it on when you are out travelling.

                  • problem with encryption

                    I installed the app on my xperia Z5 compact. Followed all the steps including encryption of the mobile. Nevertheless after encryption, the modile restart and now if I want to connect to OWA, it keeps on saying your mobile needs to be encrypted and stays on this page with option continue or reinitialize. If I press continue it would come back on the same page.

                                • Disable all email notifications

                                  Microsoft stated here https://owa.uservoice.com/forums/255426-owa-for-android-pre-release/suggestions/6125173-allow-notifications-to-be-disabled that a feature was completed to allow disabling of all email notifications. This is incorrect. I can disable notifications for calendar reminders (with sound on/off), but there is no option to disable notifications for email (which is what I really would like to do).
                                  There should be 3 options: Regular notifications (with sound), Silent notifications that still appear in the notification list, and None (no noise, nothing added to the notification list).

                                  When you check email on a PC regularly, and on your phone occasionally, you really don't need to be pinged all day about emails…

                                      • Goes Offline and won't come back online

                                        On my Nexus 5 with Lollipop, the app randomly goes offline every few days, and will not reconnect without either uninstalling/reinstalling, or disabling device administrator, force stopping the app, clearing data/cache, and then setting up the account again.
