  1. "Downloading Update"

    For the past few days the app has said:
    "Downloading an app update. This may take a few minutes"

    No emails will open and this message will not disappear. Please fix!

            • Reset crash

              The app was working fine until recently, then a dialogue box appeared while trying to opne the mailbox: "Reset OWA. You need to reset OWA. Resetting will delete any information that hasn't been sent to the server." Clicking on RESET causes the app to crash, clicking on CANCEL simply delays the process and the error dialogue returns. I've tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling, but to no avail, it still constantly crashes. Any thoughts on how to resolve the issue?

              • Continuously downloading update and never finishes. Reinstall temp resolves. Poor App.

                  • Bottom Blue Bar

                    Ever gonna fix the too-tall bottom blue bar that makes the app unusable after opening an attachment? It's apparently a common issue but there's never any indication that a fix is coming. Geez....

                    • Can't see controls at top and bottom.

                      The controls at the top left and bottom right are cut off making them unreadable and almost unusable if you don't know what you're looking for.

                                • Message doesn't fit my screen

                                  Hi,

                                  Thanks for this app. It's nice to check my messages from my school account when I'm on the go. However, when I open my messages none of them for my screen properly. I have to scroll over to the right to finish each sentence which gets annoying. I have an iPhone 6. I'm not sure if there's a setting I don't know about that I can change or others are having this problem as well. The regular Outlook app works much better than OWA.

                                  Thanks,
                                  Chèye

                                    • Add New Calendar Item Functions Intermittently

                                      The add new calendar item (+) button in the upper right hand corner works intermittently. If I really want it to work, I have to keep pressing it until it comes up (usually a minute).

                                      • Duplicate Archive Box Created

                                        I have had this happen twice now. A randomly created Archive1 folder appears and defaults to the main archive folder. I then have to move all my messages from archive to archive1, delete archive, then rename archive1 to archive.

                                        • Email signature

                                          Even though I've created my email signature multiple times, OWA continually Defaults to "sent from OWA app" signature. I love the app but will discontinue using it if it doesn't retain my signature. How can I make my signature permanent?
