  1. OWA app on iOS allows access to email with Conditional Access enabled in Intune

    I ran into this problem testing access to O365 company email for a client. We set up Conditional Access in Intune so that anyone with iOS or Android would need to have a compliant device (Have the Intune Company Portal App installed, etc.) in order to sync email down. Turns out that the OWA app on iOS gets around this setting. When setting up access to Exchange online email, we get the screen saying the device needs to be enrolled via Intune to get email. Two buttons are presented at that point, Enroll (Sends you to App store to install…

  2. Texting from contact card doesn't work with + character

    If you look at a contact card and tap the message icon, then choose a phone number with a plus in it, the messages app opens with a URL encoded plus in front of the number.

  4. Public Folder/Shared Mailbox is timing out. Having to restart the app to see updates

    I have users needing weekend access to public folders that receive regular updates and we use this app to view these. Problem we're facing is that after a short amount of time, mail flow appears to cease. In actuality, if the user closes the app and reopens it, the updated inbox items appear, but having to close and reopen an app over the course of a weekend just to refresh visible mail items seems silly. Can this be fixed?

  5. Scrolling

    When I am typing a message response, the text is not properly scrolling. It cuts it off after the first sentence or two and you have to scroll up and then down to make the text reappear.

  6. "Downloading update" and will not open messages

    The downloading update notifications has been present in the app for multiple days, however, I am unable to and/or respond to email messages. What is the solution to use the app and resolve the "downloading" of the update?

  8. Letters don't post in calendar description

    When typing input in the description field, you are typing blind. Once you hit ok you can see what you typed but not during.

  13. 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!

  15. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
