  1. Activate phone calls from calendar invites

    Need the ability to activate a call from a calendar invite. Smart phones should be able to dial conference calls directly from the invite.

  2. Change pass word

    It would make things much easier for me as I travel to be able to change my pass word via my iphone. I do this normally every 30 days for security reasons.

  3. Compose HTML and image embed option

    Hi,

    Thank you for providing us a nice OWA interface for iPhone . It will be helpful if you create the feature to compose Email in HTML format and image embed option for both compose email and signatures. At present, it supports only Plan texts.

    This will help us in sending out professional emails with company logo images in emails.

    Regards,

  5. Password expiration

    No matter what I change the new password to when it asks for a new one on my iPhone, it doesn't change it. It just keeps asking and doesn't allow me to update and get emails.

  6. Calendar as Default

    Is it at all possible to have the calendar be the default app that opens first instead of email?

  7. Provide confirmation dialog before completing item move on iPhone

    Too often on my phone, messages get moved to the wrong folder when trying to move messages to a sub-folder. The confirmation feature on the iPad app prevents this erroneous behavior.

  9. Reformat text to fit mobile device

    It is difficult to read text based articles on an iPhone or other hand held mobile device.

    Could you implement a feature which reformats the text similar to the reader function found in safari and other apps.

  17. More than an HTML wrapper

    The OWA app should be more than a simple HTML wrapper. It does not even support all features available in a mobile browser (see: Options), let alone a desktop browser (how do you create/rename/delete folders? not possible, because not possible in a mobile browser).

    S/MIME support would be great. But this is technically not possible as long as it is only an HTML wrapper. Because of this, many suggestions in this forum are also not possible.

  19. Calendar Mini Month view and Week view for owa iphone

    Current list and day view options really limit the usability of owa for iPhone. Other apps provide month and week options and despite screen size they are easy to read and give a great overview of appointments/events. See Pocket Informant week/month view or Week Cal mini month or agenda view as examples. Thanks.

  20. Update the app via AppStore.

    Waiting for the app to derp around and update takes longer than needed. By doing these updates via AppStore we can do this on our own time.
