  2. Tell us how to resolve the "you need to reset OWA" error

    I’ve been using your OWA for Android (pre-release) app for about a year with stellar results. Last weekend, however, I updated all of my PlayStore apps, and now the OWA app will not let me access email. There is no comparison between the OWA app and the Microsoft Outlook app, so I rely heavily on OWA and need to get it going again. I have uninstalled, cleared cache and reinstalled OWA app numerous times to no avail. Each time it seems to connect to outlook.office365.com and then tries to connect to my mailbox but fails. The error says “you need…

    Please update de software to support android DEX station.
    Mouse is not usable within DEX station.

    OWA cannot be used within build in apps. It's always turning to light version for OWA even when this option is disabled.

  4. OWA update will not complete. I can no longer get my work email on my GS7. PLEASE FIX THIS.

    Fix the OWA app so that it doesn't stay permanently hung up when trying to do an app update. I can no longer receive my work email on my cell phone. This is CRITICAL to me. PLEASE FIX.

    Worst Piece of MS software ever!

  8. Allow users to setup location for offline content and to manage folders

    Allow the users to select which location to use for downloaded emails and other app data. It should be nice for low performance mobile users with limitted ammount of internal memory to have data on sd card

    Also, actually I can not create, delete or remove folders from OWA for Android. I don't know if this is to an issue or simply it is not implemented. Note: web app when opened from my Android 6 smarthone, using Chrome, doesn't allow it too, even using "view as computer" option.

  14. Email signature format issue

    I am an Office365 Global Admin. I followed this article (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Outlook-Web-App-options-on-a-mobile-device-EEA5E255-54EF-4319-AD9B-98764C925A03) and setup my signature for OWA in Office365. When I send a message on a mobile device using the signature that is configured there, I get the text but all formatting, colors and graphics are lost. This is posing a problem for anyone to follow new guidelines regarding email signatures. Please look into this and fix it. Our CIO tried it with OWA for iOS and the formatting, colors and graphics were stripped from his signature too. This will be a priority for us as we have…

  18. OWA App for Android is not enforcing the PIN requirement

    Hi, i have set a mobile device policy on my office365 tenant to require a pin. The idea is to compartmentalize the OWA app so a BYOD client gets challenged for a PIN every time the app is launched and also we can selectively wipe the APP and not the entire device. I got this to work perfectly on an iOS 6.1 device but i can't get it to work on an Android 6.0.1 and on iOS 9.1.
    I am able to wipe the APP on both iOS and android but the PIN challenge only works on iOS 6.1. I…
