  2. 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).

  10. I can't disable the calendar alerts when opening the app

    Every time I open the app it fires all my calendar reminders since the last time I used it. It's very annoying to cancel through all of these before being able to proceed. I have all notifications turned off in iOS settings, but evidently this doesn't control in-app alerts.

  14. New mail notification

    Really need to update the app so it notify you when you get new mail. The app notifies you for calendar events but not new email. It's a serious design / engineering / programming fault and should have notifications for new mail. Every app sends notifications even the Microsoft outlook app sends new mail notifications. The problem is the owa app lets you add contacts where as the outlook app doesn't. The outlook app sends new mail notifications and the owa app doesn't.

  16. VIP notification

    I do not need notification on every email - just by those on my VIP/favorites list. Also want the option to disable sounds on notification. Lastly the badge number should match number of new emails. Thank you.

  17. Badge count can be changed to UNREAD count instead of UNSEEN count of inbox

    Currently the badge count shows unseen count. I would like the option to see the unread count of my inbox.
