  1. App freezes and let me only do limited actions when typing a message

    For a while now I have experienced problems when responding to someone's message. The problems are such that it can make finishing or sending the email impossible.

    *unable to scroll down the original email, unless I drop the keyboard
    *unable to drop the keyboard to view the rest of the message
    *unable to switch to the numbers keyboard
    *unable to move to a previously typed line, so I have to delete everything in order to change/add something
    *unable to scroll up to send something, unless I drop the keyboard.

    Usually these problems don't happen all at once (although they just…

  2. Out of office messages

    Hello,
    A timeline feature for this out of office messages would be highly appreciated i.e. allow one to set time when such activity starts and ends.

  3. Touch sensitivity

    Using on the iPad in Sue mode (because I have vision difficulties), the selection of items is much more sensitive than the standard iPad mail app. Using a three finger tap to zoom and then drag the screen up or down often selects emails under my fingers, even though I only want to move the screen. Again, the normal Apple provided mail app (And all other iPad apps) do not do this.

  6. OWA

    What stopped me using this is that when I want to reply to an email, I don't have the ability to delete or edit the email I'm replying to below the new email. Sometimes if I'm replying or forwarding an email I might not want the person to see all previous correspondence or parts of it.

    Please get this sorted! I'm an Android and IOS user

  7. Scrolling on iPad

    I can't seem to scroll through an address list I have made on my iPad, it just goes to the individual details that I have happened to touch when scrolling

  8. Adding attachments other than photos

    I would really like to be able to send a document from my iPad when I am at remote locations. Currently, the only option made available is to attach a picture. Is there a way this can be fixed?

  10. Add a "Send" button to iPad Pro app

    Sure would be handy if I could send the e-mail that I typed to my potential subcontractor. I can click the Reply All button, and it brings up an e-mail draft, but there is not an option to send the e-mail. Guess I will save it as a draft and then go to another device so I can send it.

  11. Goes from slow to unresponsive!

    I'm on a good network, yet the app is most times slow to sync, then gets even slower and won't update actions, i.e. Slow to change from un-read to read or move mail between folders. It gets to where I have to restart the app multiple times over the course of the day to get it to act properly for a short time! It has only worsened after the last update.

  12. Setting up this app message

    After I open OWA I now get a message saying "setting up this app to work offline. This may take a few minutes". This happens when I'm connected to the internet. I am using iPad 2 on io7

    This OWA version seems to develop new bugs all the time and it's a real pain not being able to delete original content when forwarding messages.

  13. Very simple - fix the passcode failure!

    For over 1 year now the Owa for iPad apps Options>general>passcode feature fails to work. This is being reported across the Internet by hundreds of people. In particular the business community need this fixed as a matter of urgency. I've taken to reporting this issue here on this blog as apparently it is monitored. Trying to find another means of reporting this fault seems impossible to find. So come on Microsoft please pay attention to this issue and pass to someone in your team who has authority to take action on this. Please get back to me to discuss. Many…

  14. OWA Keeps Restarting

    OWA keeps restarting even after resets. I found forums suggesting to change the iPad date format to 24hr under General, which fixes it sometimes but it seems as though just switching from 24hr to 12hr or 12hr to 24hr and going back into OWA mostly fixes the problem. A chat session with Microsoft confirmed there had been postings about this issue. There hasn't been an update to OWA for a while and I'm surprised this issue has not been fixed yet. Other than that, when it works it's a good interface.

  17. Mail integration with other programs

    I just loaded and started using OWA for MS 365. The mail program works well. The problem is when we use OWA instead of the native IOS mail program, there is no way to send email from other applications such as safari.

    Is there a way to set up IOS so other applications use OWA to email from instead of mail? FOr example, in Safari, if you want to email a link how do you email it from OWA. Or how do you email a photo from photos from OWA instead of the native mail client which no longer has…

  18. Add print function to OWA

    I like OWA a lot, but am frustrated that I can't print emails from it. Could this functionality please be added?

    Also, I like Outlook, but it doesn't have access to Shared Folders (OWA does). Could Shared Folders be added to Outlook?

    Have a great week

  20. Font Sizes

    Would like to be able to use smaller fonts on my iPad Pro. The large screen size could be better utilized with a smaller font option.
