  1. Tell us how to resolve the "you need to reset OWA" error

    I’ve been using your OWA for Android (pre-release) app for about a year with stellar results. Last weekend, however, I updated all of my PlayStore apps, and now the OWA app will not let me access email. There is no comparison between the OWA app and the Microsoft Outlook app, so I rely heavily on OWA and need to get it going again. I have uninstalled, cleared cache and reinstalled OWA app numerous times to no avail. Each time it seems to connect to outlook.office365.com and then tries to connect to my mailbox but fails. The error says “you need…

  3. Notifications setup

    It would be great to have the option to turn notifications ON/OFF.
    Also select a specific sound for it's notification.
    Better if separated between mail and calendar.
    Could also have a date/time modifier, i.e., notifications allowed only monday to friday between 9AM and 5PM (or a custom date/time range).

  5. sync schedule

    The exchange app allows you set a sync schedule so you can decide when to download e-mails ect. OWA also needs that. I want to turn it off at night so I do not get woken up by e-mail notifications.

    Fix the OWA app so that it doesn't stay permanently hung up when trying to do an app update. I can no longer receive my work email on my cell phone. This is CRITICAL to me. PLEASE FIX.

  7. Must be able to access more than one account

    This is an absolute must! I have more than one account. As it is now, I access one on my phone and the other on my tablet. Can I tell you just how frustrating this is? In fact, I should be able to use this like outlook, and access POP/IMAP accounts as well. For now I'll just take multiple exchange accounts. PLEASE!!!

  17. Email signature format issue

    I am an Office365 Global Admin. I followed this article (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Outlook-Web-App-options-on-a-mobile-device-EEA5E255-54EF-4319-AD9B-98764C925A03) and setup my signature for OWA in Office365. When I send a message on a mobile device using the signature that is configured there, I get the text but all formatting, colors and graphics are lost. This is posing a problem for anyone to follow new guidelines regarding email signatures. Please look into this and fix it. Our CIO tried it with OWA for iOS and the formatting, colors and graphics were stripped from his signature too. This will be a priority for us as we have…

  19. Please update the APP with DEX Station support. Mouse cannot be used in Dex Station.

    Please update de software to support android DEX station.
    Mouse is not usable within DEX station.

    OWA cannot be used within build in apps. It's always turning to light version for OWA even when this option is disabled.
