  1. Being able to edit Forwarded/Reply email threads

    You can't seem to edit a previously emailed thread when forwarding or replying to that thread, in the OWA iphone or ipad app - other than being able to select and copy text.

  3. mobile responsive owa

    Can you make OWA (outlook web access) via my company's Exchange be a responsive web (mobile first) web design? Our company has disabled device email integration because of the security risk of not being able to manage the device and gone with an expensive GOOD Technologies solution which is terrible and expensive.

    Why note make OWA be responsive and sever mobile content to the browser? Bootstrap UI design / mobile view of the same thing?

  7. Forwarding messages

    Won't let me delete any text from previous messages being forwarded. I should have the option to manually delete the text.

  12. Enable Quick-Step functionality for moving items to folders

    Outlook client has quick step functionality which is useful for simple "move read item to Folder" type of actions to help keep inbox clean.

    Gmail mobile app has similar functionality with the "Archive" button.

    A similar quick step for OWA app would be very useful.

  13. "Right Click" for calendar sharing and email folders

    Allow me to bring up contextual menus by long tapping folders and other objects. This seems to work in the calendar section on iPad, but not on the iPhone. Also, it doesn't work on the mail screen even on the iPad.

    We should be able to share calendars and open shared folders, etc just like in OWA via this option.

  18. Automatic Reply (AKA Out of Office) should have a link for help and guidance.

    Automatic Reply (AKA Out of Office) should have a link for help and guidance. It is very powerful and leaves many novice and new users scratching their heads. Alternatively a simplified initial experience should be offered that simply stops and starts the message and for all users. (In most environments where external needs to get blocked it gets done at the organization level anyway,)

  19. Embedded links to Web URLs do not wok

    None of the links embedded in messages work. They all go to a page and report an error.
