  7. Notifications

    I do not receive push notifications at all when a new email is sent to me. I have an iPhone 6S and don’t know if there is some advanced setting that I’m missing or what.

  8. Notifications for shared folders

    This is a much needed feature. I need to be notified when I receive email in my shared folders, otherwise the app is useless to me.

    Notifications do not appear on home screen when locked. Any chance this can be added?

  11. Receiving notifications when new emails arrive.

    Please make it accessible to receive notification when new emails are inbox. I miss tons of emails and get them weeks late due to no notifications on new messages.

  13. Sharedmail box doesnt get notifications alert that there is an email.

    OWA app doesn’t let you know when a shared mail box has an email come in.

    Is there a solution or update for this?

  16. Don’t show reminders for appointments that have passed

    When opening the app, all the reminders from previous meetings pop up even those that have passed. Can you disable those?

  17. Notifications

    The application does not show when a new email arrives. I have to keep opening to check for new mail. This is despite of all notifications being on.

  19. Refresh

    Mail doesn’t refresh automatically, I have to shut down the app and reopen if I want to see if a new email has come through. Also should send notifications when a new email comes through.
