  1. Use metadata and categories instead of folders.

    There should not be a physical structure in email. In order for me to search for my content I need to be able to describe it properly. Folder names should be metadata. All folders should essentially be "search folders". The owa app should allow me to assign metadata and have the email show up in the appropriate folder. Where I can also search and find items much easier.

  3. Unread Mail (all folders)

    I have incoming mail moved into subfolders. There is no way to view all the unread mail like you can in Outlook.

    For instance all external mail not in the Global Address List is put into a folder named "Inbox (external)". This allows me to deal with internal vs external mail more effectively. In Outlook this works great, but in this app you have to change into each folder to check mail.

  5. Oops

    I accidentally ignored an email. There should be an option to un-ignore.

  10. 'All' option does not show all emails

    Not all emails are visible when 'All' option selected. On iPhone version only - it's fine on my iPad. Only shows new unread emails. If I delete the app and reinstall they all appear again but only until the first email update at which point they disappear again.

  12. Can't see it

    Appearance is to monotone. A bolder, more contrasting formatting would make it more usable rather than less.

  13. Automatic Image Downloads

    It'd be great to have a setting to allow images to download automatically in email messages. I have this enabled in Outlook 2013 for Windows.

  14. VIP Mail List

    Native iPhone mail app lets you assign VIP status to contacts so they alert in a different way or at least get filtered differently - please tell me I don't have to do this using rules in the desktop version.......

  15. Icons

    What is with the new icons? They are terrible and don't even make sense. I suggest retuning them back.

  16. To avoid eye strain, please can we have some customisable colours?

    The bland, colours cause one part of the screen to blend with the next. Please can we have some colour to allow areas to be differentiated (and please allow more than the 3 shades of grey that office 2013 allows)

  18. Writing Long emails on an Android device

    We support "own devices" in our organization and any of our staff love their Android device. They are finding that when they are writing a long è-mail, the text disappears and they no longer are able to see what they are writing, we need this fixed. Thank you .

  19. Reply/Delete scroll off screen

    When I open an email in OWA, as I scroll down to read, the Reply/Delete/other options icons scroll off the top of the screen. When I then want to perform an action after reading the email, I have to scroll back up to do so.

    It's not a huge problem but I would have thought it more prudent to have these icons static at the top of the screen.

    Thanks,
    Carmen
