  1. Automatic sign out

    The app automatically logs me out after every session. Because my company is very secure, I have to manually input everything again once it closes out, like I'm setting it up new for the first time. Very annoying.

  3. Email Vacuum

    So what I just realized when comparing how my email account looks on outlook 2013 and on this application is that emails appear here that do not appear in my outlook. For that reason I am forced to remove my a account from this app and remove the app from my iPhone due to a decrease in productivity.

  4. Ability to send from alias

    This is such a basic feature that I'm actually surprised it's not possible. Please Microsoft fix this, other wise I'll be forced to use the iPhone basic mail :(

  5. Update cache of inbox, give option to have no local cache.

    It would be nice if the local cache would actually update as you delete emails from your inbox. After I cleaned up my inbox, my local cache, located in Other Data on iOS, the cache would not clear itself. It just ate up my local space and would not let me reclaim or reuse it. I deleted the app, and reinstalled yet still ended up needing to erase my phone and restore from backup. Very annoying and inefficient. If I remove data from my inbox, which is cached locally by default, as I move mail to other unsynced folders to…

  6. Honor conditional formatting from Outlook

    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

  7. Doesn't update

    Even though there are new mails available, they don't show up in OWA. It claims to be looking for new mail, but it doesn't.

  11. Restore ability to select offline folders

    Sometime back I selected three folders to be available offline (along with inbox and drafts which are available by default). When I went to add two more today (the limit is five) I was not only not able to add but I lost the three that I had previously selected. This is very important for working on planes that do not yet have wifi.

  12. Background App refresh

    Add a feature to keep OWA syncing with the server. This feature will enhance the 'unread ' feature which requires the app to be in the foreground.

  16. Smart links

    Please make address, phone numbers and urls as smart links across mail, calendar and contact.

    Also phone numbers are not able to be copied and pasted. The selection tool does not constraint itself to just the number but selects the whole block. Thank you.

  19. Read / Unread display

    Request to differentiate Read/Unread header display more prominent. As of now the Blue Bar on left side is way bit narrow. Maybe the Subject text can be bolder for unread items or tint the whole bar in Light blue while read items can be as it is now ( thin font and white background)
