    • Email signature

      Even though I've created my email signature multiple times, OWA continually Defaults to "sent from OWA app" signature. I love the app but will discontinue using it if it doesn't retain my signature. How can I make my signature permanent?

        • "Setting up to work offline"

          I keep getting messages on the app saying it is setting up to work offline and it will take a few minutes.

          I left the app open and active for 30+ minutes and the same message appears.

          Either set it up or don't - I don't need this constant reminder of something that doesn't seem to happen

                  The app does not appear to be working.

                    • Selection of more than one email to delete, move to another folder

                      We were be able to do this before, select more than one file, now you have to do it individually which is quite annoying. Will be nice and faster to have this option.
