  3. Select from a list of previously used 'From' addresses

    I have been teaching all of my users how to change the "From" address when send mails using this guide:

    https://community.office365.com/en-us/w/mobile/owa-for-iphone-and-owa-for-ipad

    Dan Park can send messages on behalf of Kim Akers using OWA App on his iPad. Here are the steps one will need to follow in this scenario:

    1. Create a new message

    2. Click on the ... icon on top right hand corner to have a list of available options displayed

    3. Tap on 'show from' to have the 'From' field displayed in the new e-mail message

    4. Tap and hold on 'From' field to have a menu…

  4. Multiple Email Accounts

    It would be nice to be able to switch between outlook & hotmail email accounts, whether they are personal or "business" but not have all of the emails merged together on one page

  5. Inbox appearance options

    Would like s few more options to customize how inbox is displayed. Two top options I'd like are to show all emails individually, not in strings. And to make headings (names) smaller to get more per page.

  6. Forward email attachments

    Allow user to forward (via a new email) an attachment(s) from a received email.

    Sometimes, it's helpful to send an attachment to a new recipient without including the text, etc from the email received. I incision this as a "press-and-hold" feature where the user press the attachment icon, waits for it to download, then presses and holds. that would bring up the "Open in" option list. One of the options would be Forward in new email.

  7. Need the option to keep Replies and Forwards in same folder as the original email

    I need the option to have all replied and forwarded emails to be stored in the same folder as the original email. Every time I use the iPhone or iPad app I have to re-organize all replies and forwards emails from the Sent folder to the original email's folder one at a time! My desktop Outlook does this automatically.

  9. Can't move my emails

    For last two days, I realized that I can't move my mails using OWA to other folders on my iPad. Works okay on iPhone though.

  10. Not getting any emails when the notif. comes...

    I get the red (1) next to the app but when I open it, nothing comes up. No emails, no nothing. Nothing in junk or any folder. Please fix it.

  12. Language support

    I frequently communicate in 2 languages. English and Afrikaans. Since you do not have a language support in Afrikaans...I cannot enter...or disable spellcheck right from the keyboard. My Afrikaans language is translated into English and the new words forced are entered as new dictionary words...which then makes the English dictionary bad. Since I get 50% in both languages...it takes too long to go to settings every time.

    Please add a miscellaneous keyboard which disables spellcheck.

    Thx

  14. Inside a message thread, sort by most recent message

    Now, you immediately have to scroll down to see the most recent message in a thread. Would it be better to display the most recent message first and scroll down for previous messages/messages in other folders?

  15. Option to change font size

    Can you please add an option to adjust font size in the OWA app? Text is too big and clutters the screen.

    Thanks

  17. Message format

    I haven't seen message format for new email messages. I haven' liked the default.

    Please let me if this functionality is already implemented.

  18. Spell Check Forgotten

    I can't believe that this app doesnt have a spell check for the body of the email. I mean it has it in "post an idea" but you left it out for the body of the email? Seriously, WTF. Huge miss.

    Is there anyway to delete more than one email at a time? Very Time consuming!

  20. Show group conversations in outlook

    Add group conversations to the menu (left side section with inbox and such) of outlook in mobile view and on the owa app. Display group conversations just like in outlook when viewing from a desktop. Once there, Allow group conversation to be added to favorites.
