  3. Sort by unread then open email fails to mark as read.

    When I sort my inbox by "unread" and then open an unread email it still shows as unread when inbox sort is returned to "all". Very annoying and unhelpful.

  7. Multiple Email Accounts

    It would be nice to be able to switch between outlook & hotmail email accounts, whether they are personal or "business" but not have all of the emails merged together on one page

  8. Possible to add Outlook.com email integration?

    I'm sure you have heard this before but I was really hoping to use my outlook.com account for this app. All my emails come through outlook on Mac and I know that you can set up your account no problem on a Windows phone. Any possibility this could be an option in the future?

  9. Always so content from sender

    I turn this on for a center but it fails and continues to hide images from sender. Need to build it to turn this feature completely off! Must it be done in Office Admin settings?

  10. Deleting messages

    Please make a quicker more efficient way of deleting emails from the app. A "Delete All" option would be fantastic.

  11. Notifications parent folder

    It would be great to see that there are emails that are unread in a folder when the parent folder is minimised.

  12. OWA email forwarding to iPhone won't work

    I looked up online how do I add my OWA email (which I not use for school) to my phone, but it won't work. So instead I tried to have my OWA Email forwarded to my Hotmail account. The icon which should appear under options to be able to forward the email isn't even there, so now I have no idea how to do it. It was suggested to download the app instead of just logging in on the mobile web but that didn't do any good either.

  17. Email Signature Settings

    It would be perfect to be able to include a company logo and keep the same formatting and font for your email signature, like you do on the computer from your Outlook account.

  18. Streamline features and UI between OWA and Outlook.com

    Also, why is there a different UI for Outlook.com and Outlook Web App, they are both email clients and they both serve the same purpose, instead of having two UI's and set of features, consolidate the best of both into one email UI for both services. Also why not, if possible, jointly develop the email clients for both Outlook.com and outlook web app, giving both consumers and businesses the same features at the same time.
    For example the new clutter feature, that'd be awesome on the outlook.com experience but because thats a different team they're probably start working on their…

  19. Connect to other accounts

    There does not appear to be way to connect other accounts (yahoo, gmail, etc.) and no options for adding exchange account either.

  20. Make calendar appointment from email

    Emails regularly prompt the need to follow up with a task and appointment. So please make an option to create an appointment from within an email record. This has long been available in desktop versions and arguably it is even more necessary when on the go. Thanks
