  1. Add ability to use shared mailbox on outlook for iOS

    There is still no ability for users to connect to shared mailboxes in Outlook for iOS, this has been an issue for a very long time, MS needs to prioritise this as it is critical for business users.

  3. 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…

  8. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. Colors

    Would it be possible to customize our mail with colors?
    Example: Important mail would be red
    Or! Possible to customize our setting so the theme can be other colors other than just blue.

  12. 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.

  13. Copy text from old emails

    Copying text from old emails when viewing, forwarding or replying would be a helpful feature. I have to go to my Outlook account through the mail system on my iPhone in order to copy text which is very inconvenient.

  15. more email address fields

    Please allow unlimited e-mail address fields, or at least increase it significantly. Maybe this is an Exchange limitation, but many of my contacts have 6 or more e-mail addresses these days.

  16. Streamline features and UI between OWA and Outlook.com

    Also, why is there a different UI for Outlook.com and Outlook Web App, they are both email clients and they both serve the same purpose, instead of having two UI's and set of features, consolidate the best of both into one email UI for both services. Also why not, if possible, jointly develop the email clients for both Outlook.com and outlook web app, giving both consumers and businesses the same features at the same time.
    For example the new clutter feature, that'd be awesome on the outlook.com experience but because thats a different team they're probably start working on their…

  17. Cannot send email messages

    Since the IOS 10 upgrade Ian not able to send messages. All the messages just sit in my out box and after 3 hours (Long time) go out. By this time I have sent another message so the recipient ends up with two messages confusing them.

    I have stopped using OWA on my iPhone to send messages.

    Let me know when you have a resolution at George.johnpulle@gmail.com or gjohnpulle@deloitte.com.au or mobile 61 477641149

    Thanks
    George

  20. Possible to add Outlook.com email integration?

    I'm sure you have heard this before but I was really hoping to use my outlook.com account for this app. All my emails come through outlook on Mac and I know that you can set up your account no problem on a Windows phone. Any possibility this could be an option in the future?
