  2. Move reading pane

    The Outlook OWA for iPad does NOT seem to allow for displaying the reading pane at the bottom.. This can be done on the portal or a computer and should be available for iPad. I ain't seeing that setting anywhere on iPad.

  3. Why doesn't OWA copy ideas?

    The OWA app is a nice try of the programmers to provide email and calendar access to O365 accounts. But in my opinion it is not much more.

    Somehow the native apps of iOS, thus calendar, contacts, mail and maybe notes provide already full OWA functionality without all the odds of the OWA app.

    This app lacks so many small features, that it is unfortunately not very productive at all. Beside that I can not use it for my other accounts, as e.g. iCloud or Gmail.

    A small list of problems which I encountered comes here:
    • missing delete icons…

  7. Docs about the OWA container? Tech specs?

    In order to trust the OWA container with my data I need some information about the security of the OWA app container (iphone and android).

    Am I more secure using the OWA container or the native device email?

    How is my cached/offline data stored / protected?

    Need INFORMATION that I can provide to my security teams in order to be approved to use OWA app.

    I tried MS support and all they could do was point me here.

  8. Unread Mail (all folders)

    I have incoming mail moved into subfolders. There is no way to view all the unread mail like you can in Outlook.

    For instance all external mail not in the Global Address List is put into a folder named "Inbox (external)". This allows me to deal with internal vs external mail more effectively. In Outlook this works great, but in this app you have to change into each folder to check mail.

  12. where's the spell check?

    the different set up of the app on the ipad vs. the tablet make the "help" features NOT helpful. Where is spell check? where is share calendars? the set up is very frustrating.

  17. ****** app

    Crappiest iphone app that I have ever used. It's very slow and unresponsive. Also desing is weird. App icons are not telling me what they do. Can you add option to choose numpad as default to enter passcode?

  18. Updating email

    How many times do I have to enter my password for this app only for it to say wrong password when it's clearly not. Please fix this, otherwise this app is useless.

  20. OWA Formatting Features

    OWA does not support full HTML email. If a user drafts an email with a table and the email is saved, opening the email in OWA removes the table layout. YIkes!!

    Please fix this.

    Regards,

    Leonard
