        • No notifications from this app at all.

          Every time I open the OWA app, I’ve been getting new emails. The thing is I’m not getting any notifications from them at all. Is there some kind of glitch or do you guys not do notifications, like ever?

                • New mail notification

                  Really need to update the app so it notify you when you get new mail. The app notifies you for calendar events but not new email. It's a serious design / engineering / programming fault and should have notifications for new mail. Every app sends notifications even the Microsoft outlook app sends new mail notifications. The problem is the owa app lets you add contacts where as the outlook app doesn't. The outlook app sends new mail notifications and the owa app doesn't. So I'm running both apps just to have add contacts with the owa app.. and have the…

                  • Notifications for emails please

                    Why is there only notifications for calendar reminders? We need email notification too (as opposed to just the badge)

                      • Turn off Clutter

                        How do I turn off Clutter? I've missed more than 1 important email because Microsoft Office deemed it Clutter.

                              No notification from this app despite the notification has been turned on. Ended up I have to configure the native iOS mail to receive the email for receiving the notification.

                                  This app would be great if the unread/new message count would be displayed on the app badge. The layout is great, I personally love it compared to how apples native mail app handles multi thread emails. I would definitely start using this app all of the time for email but will have to stick with apples mail app because of the unread message count not being displayed. Even though it looks great I don't want to have to open the app every 5 minutes to check for new email.

                                      • Add option to turn on/off event notifications

                                        I don't want notifications for my events when I open the app. I'd like to have them on my desktop, but off in the mobile version.

                                        • Please can we have notifications for shared mailboxes

                                          I get notifications for new emails in my personal account, but not the shared mailboxes I monitor. It would be really helpful to have either an actual notification or some other indicator that I need to scroll down the screen to find the mailboxes with messages I need to action (maybe have ability to make them favorites?). Thanks
