  1. Scroll down or up an email

    When I have an email open why can't I go to the next one in 1 click?

  2. Unread email while offline

    While the offline folders feature works- a very useful feature while on a plane or subway - the Unread mail feature requires an internet connection.

    Can you add some code to view the unread emails while offline?

    Thanks!

  5. Shared mailbox collaboration

    Shared mailboxes are great but without being able to see who has replied to what from the OWA app it makes it almost useless as an email collaboration tool.

    It would be awesome if you could see exactly what emails had been replied to and who in the company had been assigned to what email this would especial useful for email address used for help desk.

  6. Like button

    A simple like button to alert the sender the message was read and acknowledged when a full response isn't needed.

  7. Be nice if it worked. Worked for three days. Now crashes every time.

    After installing it worked fine for three days. Now it crashes after opening every time. Not usable. Will delete and reinstall, but not hopeful. As bad as other Microsoft products. Wish my organization did not use your products.

  8. Email history log

    I've had other emails in the past that let you see when people have opened the email or started a reply in a list that you could pull up at any time, and it's helpful to know especially within a school setting, which is why I have to use this email.

  9. Why doesn't OWA copy ideas?

    The OWA app is a nice try of the programmers to provide email and calendar access to O365 accounts. But in my opinion it is not much more.

    Somehow the native apps of iOS, thus calendar, contacts, mail and maybe notes provide already full OWA functionality without all the odds of the OWA app.

    This app lacks so many small features, that it is unfortunately not very productive at all. Beside that I can not use it for my other accounts, as e.g. iCloud or Gmail.

    A small list of problems which I encountered comes here:
    • missing delete icons…

  10. Unread Mail (all folders)

    I have incoming mail moved into subfolders. There is no way to view all the unread mail like you can in Outlook.

    For instance all external mail not in the Global Address List is put into a folder named "Inbox (external)". This allows me to deal with internal vs external mail more effectively. In Outlook this works great, but in this app you have to change into each folder to check mail.

  15. Canned responses

    It would be nice if there were a way to have a few sentences prepared and able to quickly paste into replies.

  17. Edit email text font while composing

    Like in desktop outlook there should be a feature to select the text while composing the email and edit it with features like bold, italics, underline, colour change, font selection etc. If simple apps like Docs-to-go can allow for it then OWA definitely should.

  18. Allow Bullet Points in email

    One of the biggest drawbacks of writing a mail using the app is that one cannot add bullet points which are frequently required. By adding this you will score over iPhone's native mail client.

  19. Embedded Images in email should be scalable to screen size

    Right now if there is any image that has been inserted in the body of the mail then it automatically magnifies to its full size and there is no way to fit it to the screen unlike in iPhone's native email client.

  20. Browser based OWA sync to 365 OWA

    I think that I cannot simply import my IE based remote OWA into 365. This means that my historic email and folder structures are wasted and useless. I didn't really want to setup everything AGAIN.
