  4. Search folders would be a nice addition

    Hello Microsoft team. Any chance you can enable search folders in OWA?

    I use a combination of several rules and folders. When using Outlook, I rely on my "Unread Mail" search folder to review unread messages. This way, I don't have to be scrolling through each folder.

  5. Clutter isn't helpful

    I still have to read though the clutter inbox to make sure I haven't missed anything important, so it saves me no time whatsoever. How about we choose the senders we want in the clutter inbox then you can automatically separate the emails. Like how the junk inbox used to work.

  7. Email doesn't update

    I've changed the email linked on my outlook account and for some he's on the server doesn't take the change. As the email address attached is the old one ,instead of the new one,even though I've made updates that stuck on the computer but doesn't do so on my iOS apps.

  8. Ability to send draft e-mails

    So far as I can tell, there does not seem to be an intuitive way/any way to open up a draft e-mail, edit it and then send it. I tried selecting the text to paste into a new email, but that does not appear to work either.

  13. Add a reset button

    You have made it impossible to reset the app. Add one under tools make it work off line.

  14. Why can't I see my messages?

    This app is first of all super inconvenient. Though I appreciate that it's easier to delete emails than google's app which only really conveniently allows you to archive. I have a thread of messages going but it won't let me see them, it only notifies me that I have replied. Who cares? I obviously know I replied. Let me see the message I replied to!?

  15. Select from a list of previously used 'From' addresses

    I have been teaching all of my users how to change the "From" address when send mails using this guide:

    https://community.office365.com/en-us/w/mobile/owa-for-iphone-and-owa-for-ipad

    Dan Park can send messages on behalf of Kim Akers using OWA App on his iPad. Here are the steps one will need to follow in this scenario:

    1. Create a new message

    2. Click on the ... icon on top right hand corner to have a list of available options displayed

    3. Tap on 'show from' to have the 'From' field displayed in the new e-mail message

    4. Tap and hold on 'From' field to have a menu…

  17. View options

    There should be a way to view (and delete) messages individually instead of by conversations. On the web, Microsoft says there is a way under the search field to disable the conversation feature but when I hit the search button there are no options so this feature must be deeply buried. The options should be more readily accessible if they exist.

  18. Font options

    Need to add more font options. The city just changed its standard approved fonts and it's only available from the desktop outlook versions.

    I need merriweather and open sans.

  19. Copy text from old emails

    Copying text from old emails when viewing, forwarding or replying would be a helpful feature. I have to go to my Outlook account through the mail system on my iPhone in order to copy text which is very inconvenient.

  20. Notification Sound For Emails Sent and Received

    This app REALLY needs to add a pretty standard option of allowing the phone to chime and or vibrate when an email is sent and received. Please get this done. The app is great but this is a huge thing for many people. Thanks!!
