  1. ‘Protect’ only renders on 2nd attempt

    When I try to send an encrypted message from my iOS browser or from the OWA app it does not give me the ‘Protect’ option upon first attempt. I have to close my message and try sending a new one to get that to come up when I click on the three dots.

      • ACCESSING SHARED MAILBOX

        In the office, on our desktops, we run O365 with approx 12 accounts + 1no shared mailbox which we all have access to and move emails from our own accounts into relevant folders in the shared mailbox.

        WHY are we are unable to do the same on our iOS devices?? There have been numerous requests for this but it seems to fall on deaf ears.

        Microsoft? Please explain your difficulties.

          • 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?

              • Flagging bug

                For months now, when I tap flag, the app is unresponsive and often does not update the email to show the message’s flag status. What’s worse, once a message is flagged, it marks the read message as “unread,” which is very annoying.

                • 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.

                                      • 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.
