  4. Get "phishing" button to work

    Nice you guys included an option to mark email as "phishing" - but unfortunately it seems to be broken on iOS. It would be great if you guys could fix it!

  6. Old emails reappearing in inbox

    From time to time a block of old emails (about 20-30) that were moved to sub folders reappear in my inbox. Usually they are from 4-6 weeks ago.

    I tried moving them again out of the inbox to the folders they were previously in and all is fine. Next time I open OWA everything is still fine only for them to return (not always the same ones) at a later time.

    It appears to be a new bug as the emails should be perfectly synchronized to my desktop outlook account. This problem started in early July 2106 and needs to…

  8. Meeting times wrong in quick view

    The meeting was set for 8:30 but when I look at it on the calendar on my app it's set to start at 9:30. The top of the box sits between 9 and 10. Please check this issue out. I was almost late for a meeting

  9. Scheduling assistant showing incorrect date/time

    When I try to use the scheduling assistant I get some weird date option like 10/10/1602. It's impossible to tell what the other attendees suggested. I have a screenshot in case you need one.

  10. Save message as draft?

    In the OWA app, I can't find a way to save a message as a draft. Maybe I am missing something, but when I start an email, then click away from it, it appears to be discarded.

  13. OWA for iphone error

    My OWA app on my iphone is not connecting anymore since the new app update so I cannot see if I have received any new emails as it says I am disconnected although my internet is working.

    Please fix this as it is important that I have access to my emails.

    Thanks

  14. Cannot delete old calendar appts from deleted items box

    This app refuses to allow me to delete deleted calendar appointments from my deleted box. Every time I hit delete it freezes the entire app. When I restart the app there they are again, sitting in my deleted box. Really annoying!!

  17. I seem to have a virus.

    I keep getting emails that were undeliverable but I didn't send them. I was wondering if this can be fixed. I seem to get about at least 10 per day. Generally in different languages. Not sure how it happened but can this be fixed?
    Thanks

  18. Multiple Account Management/Sign out

    I would like to be able to connect to both my .edu account and my work account. It also makes absolutely no sense that an email app does not at least have the option to sign out so I can sign back in with my second account. It seems like very poor planning on Microsoft's part. I even downloaded the other Outlook app and can't even connect to my work server!

    Please keep ease of use in mind for your customers. I should be able to have access to both of my accounts at least one at a time if…

  20. Please Fix Attachment Loading on OWA for iOS

    The most recent version OWA (as of 4.7.2016) for iPad does not properly load attachments. When I use the menu option to "open in device" nothing happens. This is seriously frustrating because I deal with email with numerous attachments and not being able to open them defeats the purpose of using OWA. Older versions of OWA on iPad and iPhone did not have this problem. I respectfully request Microsoft to PLEASE FIX THIS BUG!!

    And while you tinker with your code, I have another suggestion: there should be a way to let OWA open word doc by calling Word (or…
