  4. Docs about the OWA container? Tech specs?

    In order to trust the OWA container with my data I need some information about the security of the OWA app container (iphone and android).

    Am I more secure using the OWA container or the native device email?

    How is my cached/offline data stored / protected?

    Need INFORMATION that I can provide to my security teams in order to be approved to use OWA app.

    I tried MS support and all they could do was point me here.

  12. Why is OWA so slow?!

    I'm on an iPhone 5s which is just 3 months old, and am finding that this app has a REALLY BIG lag.. It takes forever to load and open up?

    Any ideas why this might be, and how it can be improved?

    Thanks!

  14. iPhone 4S with most up to date iOS states not compatible with iPhone when trying to install from app store.

    The app states it is compatible for the iPhone 4S yet, when I go to the app store and download it I get the error that it is not compatible with this iPhone. I have never had any other problems like this with any other app.

  16. App needs to update but won't

    My app is currently switching between "downloading an update" and "searching for new mail" constantly. I've tried refreshing and restarting the app and nothing has changed. Is there a bug in this version?

  17. Bug - when inviting contacts to a meeting you get stuck

    While inviting contacts to a meeting the Contacts screen doesn't load fully and you're then not allowed to go back to the previous screen. You have to force close the app and restart it to get out of it.
