      When new emails arrive in my inbox, I want my device to play a sound so I know this has happened.

        • Notifications/Sound Alerts

          It would be more convenient if the app notified the user with a sound when he/she receives a message. Also, the app could display the number of unread messages the user has (when the app isn't open).

          • signing out / sign out / logoff / logout of the app

            Why is it sooooooooo hard to sign out? It should NOT be that difficult signing out from the OWA app. It's almost impossible

                • Attachments / "Open in..." OWA for Devices

                  ... is to be a target for an "Open in..." from other apps. Otherwise there is no way to add attachments.

                  And while you're at it, it might be helpful if the app was willing to "Open in..." attachments that it doesn't necessarily need to know how to open itself. Mindmaps, for example. I'd love to "Open in..." them in iThoughts.

                      • OWA app stopped displaying message contents

                        All the sudden the OWA app for iPad does no longer display the contents of a message on the right side of the screen.
                        The message list shows as before, but no contents in the reading pane.
                        Even selecting the reading view, no contents is displayed, on any message.
                        I reinstalled the app, but no change.

                            Please add the possibility to use landscape mode. It makes it easier to write emails and view attachments.

                                          I am heavily reliant on Tasks in outlook as I imagine many other users are. Why are tasks not available in this app? If Apple can get outlook tasks to sync with their Reminders app, Microsoft should be able to include Tasks within its own Outlook app.
