  1. Error message when I open emsil

    Since yesterday afternoon, my email has not worked. When I tried to open an email, it says error try again later. At the bottom, it says the app is downloading an update and may take a few minutes.

    This was prior to downloading IOS 802. I also tried turning my phone on and off multiple times and charged battery to 100.

    Help!

  3. Mark messages as Read.

    My messages will still count as unread no matter how many times I have opened the email.

  4. Automatic Image Downloads

    It'd be great to have a setting to allow images to download automatically in email messages. I have this enabled in Outlook 2013 for Windows.

  6. Setting to mark emails as unread

    All email clients have an option to turn on/off marking emails as read when opening them. This should be a setting within the options which applies to all emails.

    This is particularly useful for people who use the app after hours to keep an eye on things but don't intend on working/responding to all emails opened in the app.

  7. Making a new folder

    So far I haven't seen an option to make a new folder. It would be nice to organize my incoming email.

  9. iOS 8 issues

    After upgrading to iOS 8, composing an email has lots of problems. After about a paragraph or so of text, the formatting gets screwed up and starts to disappear.

  12. Long time to retrieve emails

    The app takes a very long time to retrieve emails and this happens very frequently.

  13. Attaching docs from OneDrive

    It would really make sense to be able to attach the docs we have in one drive to the emails. I see it as valuable as you can edit docs in OneDrive and then instantly send them. What use is it to only send photographs as attachments?!

  14. Left swipe

    Swiping left offers the options:-
    • mark read
    • mark unread
    • file
    • flag
    • delete

    I would prefer:-
    • mark read OR unread, depending whether email is already opens nor closed (otherwise one of the options doesn't make sense)
    • archive
    • file
    • flag
    • delete

    The archive option moves emails to the Archive sub folder, like in the PC version.

    Thank you.

  20. Moving messages

    OWA should remember the state how the tree of folders was already opened, as it does in Outlook!
    Or even offer a specific folder in the first place as BlackBerry does, based on the subject, the sender and previous moves!
