  1. Multiple emails delete at one shot

    This is the most basic and important feature and am surprised it is not available in OWA. Can't expect this to be so lame

  2. Bulk deletion

    How can I empty my trash (Deleted emails) and my junk folders with one or two clicks? Also the "Select All" option only selects few items at a time and NOT all items

  3. Ability to collapse Inbox subfolders so that it is a shorter scroll to access Sent, Drafts, etc.

    As with the email conversation expand/collapse arrows, allow the same functionality with parent folders and subfolders. For example - I have 50+ subfolders under my "Inbox" and I have to scroll, and scroll, and scroll to get down to access an email in my "Sent" file.

    After viewing an attachment, the bottom menu becomes stuck and will not allow the screen to scroll back to the top. Buttons located at the top of screen are not accessible.

  9. Need notifications for existing unread emails

    Red notification circle does not show existing unread emails, it shows a notification when an email is received but once the app is opened the notification disappears whether the email has been read or not, this (seemingly simple bug) needs to be urgently addressed.

  11. Make this work like the desktop version with the attachment feature of outlook iOS

    If you would make this work like the desktop version. Then add the attachment features of outlook IOS and finally allow for text sizing so I can use small size fonts this would be awesome

    Outlook for IOS
    OWA
    OWA Desktop

    These 3 together would make for the best email - no one could come close. But they all have good features and bad so none are really that great but together - it would be awesome.

    Im a heavy user of email on iPhone - desktop using windows.

  12. Updating OWA actually updates

    After a few time of updating messages OWA notifies you that there are new messages, but fails to show the new messages.

  13. Draft folder

    Why there is no new updates for more then one year. Outlook looks fine but OWA is better, it works with Draft folder. Outlook doesn't support draft folder between devices.

  17. Unable to move files

    Recently every time I use this app and attempt to move an email, the app freezes up and I have to close out of it. -Also on another note, there is no way to create new folders with this app. I have to use a different device if I ever need to create a new folder

  18. 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 :(

  19. Stop Outlook Event Add On

    You think you've found an event? No, you haven't. What you've found is my rage every time I'm trying to scroll through an important email and Outlook suddenly decides to try and force me to schedule a non existent event. Is there a way to disable the feature that hotlinks the text around dates/times? Often times when I try to back out of it, the App freezes up and I have to close it and restart. Thanks.
