  1. Can you please fix the notifications on the iPhone

    The notifications do not show up on the iPhone on the lock screen for badge alerts even though this feature is enabled. This is crippling for business users trying to access business email.

  2. App doesn't update

    You have to manually open the app to update, no badge banner nothing shows despite being 'on' in the settings. Not very helpful! And I have NOT updated to iOS 8 !

  5. I would like to see an option for turning off notifications for both incoming messages and any calendar reminders.

    I would like to see an option for turning off notifications for both incoming messages and any calendar reminders. My primary method for checking email is Outlook on Windows 7 but I occationally need to check for messages away from the office. This is a very nice app but the constant notifications is a little anoying.

  7. Read Emails

    When an email is no longer marked as unread on any device. The exchange should update all devices as to weather an email has been read or not. Sick of opening app just to find already read messages.

  11. Notifications are false

    I see that I have a number of notifications on my iPhone. However once I open the app and it refreshes I don't have a single notification. Nothing new to read.

  20. To Do

    Move all the operation buttons to one area. There are buttons all over the place. Top and bottom.
    Also, maybe it's just a quirk with my iPhone.
    The screen is stationary when I rotate my phone.
