  2. Delete all

    I've notice I was only able to remove like 5-7 mails that was on my screen on iPhone. And it was annoying to have to press three buttons just to remove that many mails. I think we need a delete all button.

  3. Messed Up

    My signature no longer works no matter how many times I set it.

    Also I keep getting a message on the bottom of my screen that states it's attempting to work offline????

  4. Continuous syncing offline

    EVERY time I use the app now, I get a message saying that the app is syncing to work offline and will take a few minutes. However, once it finishes, it said it had already been setup to work offline. It's super annoying and am seriously considering deleting the app until this is fixed.

  5. Only mark last Message unread

    Stop marking my entire thread as unread when I only mark the last email. It makes a huge mess of my inbox!!!

  6. Old email wont be archived

    I have old emails that will not stay archived or deleted but keep showing up in the inbox. This only happens on the app, not on a desktop computer.

  7. No signature sync - reverts to Sent via OWA

    Impossible to select either outlook signature or to do a mobile signature that is personalized. Every time I do it and save and it looks like it works - it reverts back to "Sent via OWA" at every email. Please update.

  9. Emails won't delete

    I've literally deleted the same emails every day for almost a month now and they show back up in my inbox the next day. It's getting really, really annoying what the **** is going on.

  10. Access to shared folders for multiple emails

    Hi Microsoft

    Thank you so much for bringing your software to touch devices such as the iPad. This allows me to work and travel with a small "always on" device. After working with OWA on the IPad and iPhone for the last 2 years, I see a few things that could improve users' workflow with Office 365 email:


    1. We use shared folders store emails for each project we work on (one sub folder per project).

    Could Ipad version of OWA keep previously opened shared folders open Ongoingly in the left hand list (as the iPhone version does)? This would make…

  11. Signature and text formatting options for iPad OWA App.

    Should at least be mail signature insertion options.
    Option to change mail format (html/plain txt), would be good. As well as text formatting settings.

  14. Attached documents from Word to OWA

    The system does not have OWA as a choice when sending word documents created in the IOS word app. The only option is Outlook. OWA should be an option

  15. Network device

    Currently when the clients in Japan region attempt to resolve outlook.office365.com, one of the following two CNAME records return.

    outlook-japan.office365.com
    outlook-japan2.office365.com

    One of the customers uses CISCO network device (ASA5555) as firewall and they add Url filtering to allow Office 365 communication based on the list below.

    Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Office-365-URLs-and-IP-address-ranges-8548a211-3fe7-47cb-abb1-355ea5aa88a2?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

    The CISCO network device has feature of dynamic list of ACL, which registers the IP addresses associated with the returned DNS A record. Because of the feature, when resolving outlook.office365.com returns the different CNAME records periodically, the communication to outlook-japan.office365.com or outlook-japan2.office365.com fails There is…

  19. Http links mangled in email

    I received a valid URL that contained the hash symbol '#'. When I click the link in iOS OWA app the hash is replaced with '%23'. The attempt to URL encode this link broke the link.
