  2. Unsent items

    From mobile, I often cannot send outgoing mail. It will only show me “1 unsent” and no option to either try again or cancel it. I feel this would be very useful to have. Thank you!

  3. Disconnected?

    I’m not sure why but I’ve be offline since last Tuesday and it won’t connect? Is there any issues with the app at the moment?

  9. View messed up

    I just downloaded the OWA and so far it works ok, but the view is messed up. Would like to know how to remove the bar at top and bottom of screen so I can see all selections/options that currently are covered by tool/task bars.

  11. OWA for iPad - set up glitch

    Initially, the App wouldn’t open and kept on “resetting”.
    So I deleted the App AND now it won’t let me complete the set up.

    It keeps of freezing at “ passcode required” stage. It won’t let me tap continue.

    I’ve tried this on a couple different iPads and have encountered the same problem.

    Please fix this glitch ASAP.

  14. Bottom info bar

    You have a bug which increases the space that the bottom info bar uses. The bug should be fixed. There should also be a button to minimize the bar if this happens.

  15. ‘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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.
