      • Bottom blue bar won't collapse

        I would like to send a picture but that is another idea for this forum. When I expand the blue menu bar on the bottom- it won't collapse until I completely close the app. Any suggestions or is it a glitch?

                • OWA App Update

                  I'm awaiting a time-critical email and am being prevented from downloading or viewing emails as OWA has decided that it must do an App update. Microsoft, if you read this, users would like a choice as to when updates are delivered. Some places and times are better than others. Possible reasons you've not considered are but I will happy make you aware of them; when working (and the user doesn't want to have to wait), or when in a poor connectivity area (and any update it likely to take a while.) Microsoft have been around long enough to know about…

                  • Remove this app

                    Why is this even in the App Store anymore? All it's doing is causing confusion for my customers.

                          • Add multiple accounts support

                            Hello

                            We would really need multiple account support

                            On browser you can open another mailbox by adding the address you have access behind /own/emailaddress

                            For our company it would help us greatly.

                            Thanks

                            • Too easy to delete!

                              It's way too easy to accidentally delete messages. There should be a confirmation that we really want to delete a message. I have gone back into my deleted messages and tried to move it back to my inbox but it's not in either box.

                                  Red notification circle does not show existing unread emails, it shows a notification when an email is received but once the app is opened the notification disappears whether the email has been read or not, this (seemingly simple bug) needs to be urgently addressed.

                                  • Option to disable "Highlight and Quote" in OWA in Office 365

                                    It would be great to have an opportunity to switch "Highlight and Quote" on/off. I really don't like this feature. So why should I use it?

                                      • Updating OWA actually updates

                                        After a few time of updating messages OWA notifies you that there are new messages, but fails to show the new messages.

                                          This is the most basic and important feature and am surprised it is not available in OWA. Can't expect this to be so lame
