  1. Well...

    I don't care how you fix it, but it needs to be fixed -it always "setting up" to "work offline". Like, it's ALWAYS doing this! It's really annoying.

  2. Faster Startup

    If the Inbox and Drafts folders are synced to the device, please have the application begin without a sync. Show me my mail, as the native iPhone application does, and begin the sync immediately.

  3. Search is clunky

    Searching contacts or mail seems very clunky having to click 2-3 times before the keyboard is available to start typing keywords. Very frustrating.

  5. Email comment

    I have never had so many problems with understanding this email system in my life. This system is just too complicated. Ugh!

  6. It needs the ability to manage device access on a per device level and not a per mailbox level.

    The OWA is a great tool and is a perfect alternative for the native mail client. However, there needs to be security work on this app. There should be the ability to allow or deny access to OWA on a device level not just mailbox level. This should be possible since I can see each OWA instant in the phone portion of a user's mailbox and this is broken out by device. This is a large issue for any corporation trying to manage email access to devices. Just turning off the ability for all devices is not the granularity that…

  7. Speed and responsiveness

    This is to inform that my speed and response issues with Microsoft OWA disappeared after I deleted the app and reset the IPad-3, removed all the fancy display features of IOS 8.x and installed Microsoft OWA again from scratch via the App Store...

    Therefore, for those who have responsiveness issues with OWA, I advice to do the above. The change is really spectacular.... I am really sorry for blaming Microsoft for the issues I had so far...

  9. Viewing Emails

    Why is it that I can't view the entire email at once? Having to slide the screen back and forth in order to view two or three extra words is pointless and time consuming.

  11. How about Making Functionality the same on Desktop and Cloud Versions?

    Many of the items are so basic (like this one) that you have to ask: Who is managing the development of these apps at MS, that they cannot reasonably figure out what constitutes "well rounded functionality". Take for instance; why doesn't the web based Office 365 components like Outlook, "mimic" the desktop version functionality. They are supposedly "syncing" but only a portion of the information is synced. I was told by MS that it is best to do the majority of the work on the cloud version, but it has very little functionality. It seems like two separate companies are…

  12. Move to folders!

    I lost ability to be able to move emails into folders ! Now the quick actions swipe right le left let's me choose only to: mark as read or unread, delete, archive, pin, flag or nothing. I loved that I used to be able to swipe and a bar of options 3 or 4 appeared (which I could customize to the actions that I personally tended to use more) and then CHOOSE from my swipe different actions - one of them being, and one that I absolutely loved, the ability to move to folders. I'm BIG on that as its…

  15. Poor Update

    Guys
    For 24 hrs now I've been unable to access my emails.
    I'm getting a update notice that does nothing!
    No advice or instructions on how to access my emails.
    I'm on holiday & need to rely on using my phone app to access emails.
    Please sort it out.

  20. Simple gone wrong

    The monochrome blocky look is not inviting to use. The lack of basic functions is the fail.
