  1. Network device

    Currently when the clients in Japan region attempt to resolve outlook.office365.com, one of the following two CNAME records return.

    outlook-japan.office365.com
    outlook-japan2.office365.com

    One of the customers uses CISCO network device (ASA5555) as firewall and they add Url filtering to allow Office 365 communication based on the list below.

    Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges

    The CISCO network device has feature of dynamic list of ACL, which registers the IP addresses associated with the returned DNS A record. Because of the feature, when resolving outlook.office365.com returns the different CNAME records periodically, the communication to outlook-japan.office365.com or outlook-japan2.office365.com fails There is…

  5. 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.

  6. OWA

    As a business owner I find it astounding that I am not able to use my professional logo when sending emails on the run from the OWA app. I am hoping this is something that can be changed in the future. If we really do live in a digital age of mobile business then my businesses professionalism should not be compromised by having to send a simple email signature without a logo. I would appreciate it if this feedback would be taken further. Thank you.

  8. Alerts

    I'm not getting an alert on my phone when I get a new email. I have to go into my email each time to check whether I have anything in my inbox. How can I make sure I get an alert each time I receive an email?

  10. Http links mangled in email

    I received a valid URL that contained the hash symbol '#'. When I click the link in iOS OWA app the hash is replaced with '%23'. The attempt to URL encode this link broke the link.

  11. Threads

    When there have been more than one reply on an email thread, only the latest is visible in the inbox. I have missed several imports emails because of this. I would like to see every email in a thread, not just the most recent.

  14. Inbox appearance options

    Would like s few more options to customize how inbox is displayed. Two top options I'd like are to show all emails individually, not in strings. And to make headings (names) smaller to get more per page.

  17. Add ability to use shared mailbox on outlook for iOS

    There is still no ability for users to connect to shared mailboxes in Outlook for iOS, this has been an issue for a very long time, MS needs to prioritise this as it is critical for business users.

  18. It would be great if OWA offered the ability to select field columns eg to/from/subject

    I like to be able to see at a glance the key email details on one line rather than a large box of information as OWA currently displays. In particular I find the "to" and "from" information crucial in filtering mails. OWA currently does not offer multiple columns. With many emails in my in box the overview of each email is important. It allows say 20 emails to be displayed line by line in a screen rather than about 4 or 5. It seems that OWA is not mobile responsive enough to handle larger display resolutions.
