  1. Password reset

    How come in OWA you can changed the startup saved password ? Now I have to delete the app and reinstall it.
    Not really user friendly unless here is a function hidden somewhere!!!

  4. Text "invisible" when typing

    I've noticed a bug of sorts with the latest update. Whenever I'm typing a semi-lengthy email (more than a sentence or two), the words I am typing will suddenly stop showing up. The cursor keeps moving and autocorrect is still correcting things, but I can't see them without either closing and reopening the email or scrolling around a bit until the text displays.

  5. Passcode required, can’t press “continue”

    The app says the I need a 4 digit passcode that I will need every time I use the app. There is a “continue”button but nothing happens, I have reset, reinstalled but still the same. I did not have this problem until I updated to a new device.

  6. 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?

  8. Make the OWA app compatible with Multi-factor authentication. You should be able to access email and meet compliance MFA requirements

    Make the OWA app compatible with Multi-factor authentication. You should be able to access email and meet compliance MFA requirements. Not very efficient to have to open a browser on your device just to access email. If 2 factor is not enabled you can setup your email but today's security requirements should be met.

  9. Turn off "conversation view"

    Just give the option to view a list of emails, not "organise" them in to conversations.
