  2. Hyper link phone numbers

    Allow phone numbers to be hyperlinks so we can dial by touching them. This feature is almost important enough that I've consider going back to iPhone mail.

  3. 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. 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 :(

  12. 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.

  14. 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.
