        • Being able to edit Forwarded/Reply email threads

          You can't seem to edit a previously emailed thread when forwarding or replying to that thread, in the OWA iphone or ipad app - other than being able to select and copy text.

            • iOS 8 issues

              After upgrading to iOS 8, composing an email has lots of problems. After about a paragraph or so of text, the formatting gets screwed up and starts to disappear.

                    • Enable Quick-Step functionality for moving items to folders

                      Outlook client has quick step functionality which is useful for simple "move read item to Folder" type of actions to help keep inbox clean.

                      Gmail mobile app has similar functionality with the "Archive" button.

                      A similar quick step for OWA app would be very useful.

                      • Swipe options

                        Suddenly I can no longer swipe left and select multiple emails and then choose to move, delete, etc. Swiping left just immediately deletes the email.

                        I found "quick actions" in settings, but there is no option to go back to how it was.

                        Being able to select multiple emails and then choose an action for all should be brought back. Now to move multiple emails, we'll have to go into each one and move them individually.

                        Please add "classic swipe options" to the quick actions settings.

                                  I color code my inbox using rules defined in outlook's view settings. It would be great if this owa app honored those settings and color coded messages accordingly. Thanks

                                        Sending a new email from the OWA app results in an unpleasant Times New Roman display in the recipient's Outlook inbox. It is unexpected and looks unprofessional, clearly not using a proper client (and most likely mobile).

                                        Email sent from mobile devices should not look shoddy and half-assed. I should be able to send messages to coworkers and customers without fear that it will look like I'm not giving them full attention.

                                        Please fix this.

                                          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
