  1. Notifications!!!

    It would be REALLY nice if this app actually did what it was supposed to, which is to NOTIFY you when you get an email! Not hours or days later either. It needs to be AS SOON AS THE EMAIL ENTERS YOUR INBOX. It's frustrating to have to constantly open the app and wait 10 minutes for it to refresh to only show me an email from yesterday that I never knew came. Get your **** together outlook! Some of us are college students RELYING on this app.

  2. 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.

  3. Just the number of new emails in notification / locked screen

    Suggestion to improve on iPhone/iPad:
    I like how windows phone shows the number of newly arrived emails in lock screen without showing the actual message (helps to keep it secured). I would like the same in iPhone like "10 new emails" without showing the actual message for security.
    Currently, I do see the red bubble in the icon but don't get notification in lock screen which needs me to unlock phone continuously on travel to check new emails, reducing battery charge.

  7. As of 1/26 Email & Calendar Notifications stopped working on this App for Android.

    After posting the issue yesterday on Microsoft (another Forum for Email and Calendars) the Email Notifications are now working. Thanks for listening.

    The Calendar Notifications are still dead though so PLEASE lets get them running today for your Users as well. Happy Users, Happy Microsoft :-)

  10. 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. Option to prevent new Mail notifications, but still get Calendar ones.

    There needs to be a way in OWA IOS app to stop mail notifications, but still get calendar notifications in the notification center? With lots of emails coming in, we could just setup Inbox Rules to text message us when the important emails come in. Too many emails, means too many notifications and lots of unnecessary checking your IOS device. Any help would be appreciated.

  14. 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.

  18. Notifications

    Every time I open this app, I am bombarded with calendar reminders for every meeting since the last time that I opened the app. This could be 10 or 20 consecutive notifications that I have to dismiss before I can proceed to check my email. Very frustrating
