  3. Outlook app on iphone gets stuck - fix it

    On all my iphones (5s, 5se) when i respond to emails, the app gets stuck. The email gets sent, but the app jams. The only way to solve it, is to restart phone. Annoying. Pls fix it if you can. It has lasted for weeks and i do all updates.

  4. Unable to unClutter a message

    You've added swipe to delete in the Clutter folder, which is already a deleted messages folder of a sort. But now I can't easily move a Cluttered message back to the Inbox where it belongs without a lot more taps. Can you put back the UnClutter quick option back into the Clutter folder?

  5. Right Click Copy to Folder

    Right Click Copy to Folder. In OWA for Exchange 2010 you could simply right click a draft and select "Copy" then "Copy to folder" to make a copy of a draft. The process has now been complicated by removing the "Copy" option from the right-click menu, and some users would like to see this option brought back for the latest version of OWA.

    Exchange 2010 OWA method:

    Open the Drafts folder.
    
    Find the specific template in Drafts
    Right click on the message and click “Copy to Folder”
    Click “Copy” again.

    A copy of the draft will appear below the original…

  6. 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.

  7. Automatic Replies

    When posting automatic replied from OWA for iPhone, it never keeps the formatting. I'm unable to tell how it is being sent to others, however, in the space provided, hitting the 'Done' button erases any format that was entered. If what is shown is being sent, it makes me look unprofessional & the phone should have a seamless and comparable experience to the MS Outlook program for Win.

  8. Lock screen freezes folder list

    If my iPhone screen locks while the OWA app is running I am not able to change folders after unlocking the device. I have to close and reopen the app to switch folders.

  11. Correct subject line with Re: and Fw:

    For some strange reason, my owa application dont add the standard terms for reply ang forvarding to the mail. They seem to use something "local".

    As these others are somekind of unstandard adds to subject line, it would be more than correct to be able to get rid of them.

    Re: for reply
    Fw: for forward

    Thanks.

  15. Emails appear incorrectly under “Yesterday”

    Good day,

    Since the latest OWA update I have noticed that certain emails (not all) appear incorrectly under “Yesterday”, even though the date is today’s date.

    Please have a look and provide a fix in the next update.

    Thank you!

  16. Time zones

    Why isn’t there a setting to have OWA reflect local time zones so that it changes when I travel?

    Unlike the native phone mail app OWA is ‘frozen’ on my home time zone & does not reflect the time of the location I am in. When traveling away from my home time zone this causes confusion - if I am in a time zone two hours later it makes it look as if I have not received any email in 2+ hours.

  17. Cancel mark as junk

    On more than one occasion I have accidentally marked email as junk when I intended to flag (as this is just below in the list). Problem is that the resulting dialogue only lets me choose between reporting or not reporting there is no way to cancel it. I have had to close down the app and restart to avoid having the selected message moved to junk :(

  18. Ability to send draft e-mails

    So far as I can tell, there does not seem to be an intuitive way/any way to open up a draft e-mail, edit it and then send it. I tried selecting the text to paste into a new email, but that does not appear to work either.
