  2. Default font and color

    Sending a new email from the OWA app results in an unpleasant Times New Roman display in the recipient's Outlook inbox. It is unexpected and looks unprofessional, clearly not using a proper client (and most likely mobile).

    Email sent from mobile devices should not look shoddy and half-assed. I should be able to send messages to coworkers and customers without fear that it will look like I'm not giving them full attention.

    Please fix this.

  4. Add multiple accounts support

    Hello

    We would really need multiple account support

    On browser you can open another mailbox by adding the address you have access behind /own/emailaddress

    For our company it would help us greatly.

    Thanks

  5. 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.

  7. Categories

    I separate all of my e-mails by categories so I can easily sort e-mails by campus since I work at four different campuses. I see that you are able to categorize calendar items, but not mail items. I would love to be able to categorize mail items and also sort by those categories like I can do on my desktop!

  8. Hyper link phone numbers

    Allow phone numbers to be hyperlinks so we can dial by touching them. This feature is almost important enough that I've consider going back to iPhone mail.

  10. Shared mailboxes

    The shared mailboxes is not updating accordingly. I have mailboxes that I no longer have access to displayed and ones that I do have full access to not displaying. There should be an option to add a shared mailbox too

  15. Make email editor support HTML

    If I write a draft email in the Outlook software on my desktop, save it as a draft, and then view it on my phone in OWA app, the email looks as I wrote it, including proper HTML (aka hyperlinks work). However, if I click edit on that draft, the email opens up in a non-HTML version and shows the links (mailto:, etc.) and then if I send from that, those tags are exposed instead of being treated as HTML.

  17. Not all recent emails are loaded

    This is a problem I am finding when using this app on my iPhone 5s, rather than iPad. A limited number of emails are seen. Unread emails do not come up on 'All' sometimes and after opening the most recent emails can not be found, even after repeated refreshing. This is ver annoying and hope it is fixed.

    But please extend this app availibility/support for the mailboxes running on Microsoft Exchange server apart from Office 365 Business.

  19. 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.

  20. Mark all as read from folder view

    Would like a one touch 'Mark All as Read' feature when in the Folders view so I can highlight a particular folder with multiple unread emails and mark them all as read without having to go into the folder and swipe select the messages. Similar to how you can right click on a folder in outlook and mark all the emails in that folder as read. Thanks.
