  2. Better Badge Notifications

    It would be nice if the badge showing the number of emails unread/received would disappear when they are read on the computer or another device. I hate having to open the app just to find out that I hate having to open the app to make the badge notification disappear.

  3. Just the number of new emails in notification / locked screen

    Suggestion to improve on iPhone/iPad:
    I like how windows phone shows the number of newly arrived emails in lock screen without showing the actual message (helps to keep it secured). I would like the same in iPhone like "10 new emails" without showing the actual message for security.
    Currently, I do see the red bubble in the icon but don't get notification in lock screen which needs me to unlock phone continuously on travel to check new emails, reducing battery charge.

  4. Notifications for iOS or Android where the on premise Exchange server does not support it.

    I currently use OWA desktop web app and the iOS/Android mobile web app as well. My company uses on premise Exchange server 2013 but do not support push notifications for the web or mobile app. It would be nice if the mobile app would use some type of polling on the OWA web site to alert users to new notifications for incoming mail.

  5. Phantom Emails

    It's super annoying when the app alerts me that I have an email and when I open the app, the inbox is empty.

  6. Turn Email Notification OFF

    I don't like being informed every time I have a new email. With this most recent update it does not give me the option to turn this feature off. I hate it!! It is so distracting having my phone buzz every time a new email is received.

  7. Unread mail notification

    This app will be perfect if, the same as the desktop version, it wil be possible to add unread folder that will show emails from all folders.

    Same idea for the badge on the app icon, that will show number of all unread mail.

    At least as an option...

  10. E-mail notification is driving me nuts

    I need to be able to turn off the email notification but still get the calendar notifications. Getting dinged 150 times a day (whenever a new e-mail arrives) is driving me nuts!!!!

  11. Notification Badge Disappears

    Even though OWA is different than the traditional Mail app using Active Sync, it'd be useful if the Notification Badge continues to display how many Unread Emails I continue to have in my Inbox. Currently the badge and count of unread emails disappears after you open the app.

    BTW - no notification sounds?
    - no ability to create groups via the app?
    - no integration with Lync?

    Getting better though. Looking forward to seeing the update.

    Thanks.

  12. Eliminate duplicate calendar alerts

    Turn off calendars alerts so if the exchange account is also on the phone the dual calendar alerts can be controlled.

  13. As of 1/26 Email & Calendar Notifications stopped working on this App for Android.

    After posting the issue yesterday on Microsoft (another Forum for Email and Calendars) the Email Notifications are now working. Thanks for listening.

    The Calendar Notifications are still dead though so PLEASE lets get them running today for your Users as well. Happy Users, Happy Microsoft :-)

  15. Notification Value

    Why does this keep changing and go away when I read the mail? Understand you're not always connected to the server, but industry standard is to CONSISTENTLY show number of unread messages. Always. Until they're read.

  18. Dashboard Visibility and Better Sharing

    The favorites should be synced as the same as on the desktop Outlook. I monitor several Inboxes and its a pain drilling down just to see if there are new emails. The trees collapse and I must drill down each time. Also, why can't I sync shared contacts and calendars?

  19. Clearing notifications

    If I have an email and I read it on my computer, iPad, iPhone, etc I will still show an unread message on the other mobile device and have to open it to clear it.
    Is there something I am missing? The sync is checked in options.
    .thanks

  20. Notifications

    When I originally set up this email I agreed to have notification sent to me daily by text message. I thought this would be a good reminder but now I get a text message at 8:00 am every day including the weekend and I can't find a place in the options to go and change it. Help please?
