          • Reset my password

            I went to log into my email and it's saying I'm inputting the wrong password, but I don't know any other password it could be. There doesn't seem to be a button to reset it either. Any suggestions?

            • 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

                  • 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?

                    • Cannot logout

                      There is no way to logout the app. It would be better to have the logout function and ability to add more than one account.

                        • Office365 credentials must be re-entered each time

                          Hello,

                          I have been using your Outlook app, as well as the OWA app on my Apple iPhone 7. Some time ago, I put in a support request, because the Outlook app suddenly started requiring me to enter my work Office365 credentials almost every time I opened the app. After a considerable amount of time, an update finally came through that solved this problem.

                          However, a few weeks ago, the problem came back again, and it occurs in both the Outlook app as well as the OWA app. I use Outlook for all my accounts, including my work Office365 account.…

                            • Disable OWA for Devices by Policy

                              Exchange Online has a PowerShell command Set-OwaMailboxPolicy. In that policy, you should be able to disable OWA for Devices.

                              The only way to currently disable OWA for Devices is on a per mailbox basis. The only way to currently disable OWA for Devices is on a per mailbox basis via GUI or the PowerShell command, Set-CasMailbox -OwaForDevicesEnabled:0.

                              OWA for Devices should be considered a security risk by any org currently using Intune and and Azure AD Conditional Access because it doesn't obey MDM Compliance & Conditional Access policies.

                              OWA for Devices also doesn't use modern authentication by default and thus…

                                • "Setting up to work offline"

                                  I keep getting messages on the app saying it is setting up to work offline and it will take a few minutes.

                                  I left the app open and active for 30+ minutes and the same message appears.

                                  Either set it up or don't - I don't need this constant reminder of something that doesn't seem to happen

                                    • Provide feature to change email password. Currently, if I change my exchange password, I don't have a way to change it on my OWA app.

                                      I'm not able to change my password within the app.
                                      If I change my password on the exchange, I don't have a way to change it on the app unless the password is automatically synced.

                                      • Move message disables whole screen

                                        When I select the option to move a message to another folder, the usual dialog window appears, but also the whole screen appears slightly washed out and all touch function is disabled, not even the dialog works. The only option is to force close the app. In short, I cannot move messages.

                                        • Moving emails

                                          When I try to move an email to another folder the app often crashes. The pop up appears to select a folder but stays greyed out so I can't select a folder. This means I have to force quit the app and open it again
