  1. Long time to retrieve emails

    The app takes a very long time to retrieve emails and this happens very frequently.

  2. Allow Bullet Points in email

    One of the biggest drawbacks of writing a mail using the app is that one cannot add bullet points which are frequently required. By adding this you will score over iPhone's native mail client.

  3. Embedded Images in email should be scalable to screen size

    Right now if there is any image that has been inserted in the body of the mail then it automatically magnifies to its full size and there is no way to fit it to the screen unlike in iPhone's native email client.

  4. Like button

    A simple like button to alert the sender the message was read and acknowledged when a full response isn't needed.

  5. Be nice if it worked. Worked for three days. Now crashes every time.

    After installing it worked fine for three days. Now it crashes after opening every time. Not usable. Will delete and reinstall, but not hopeful. As bad as other Microsoft products. Wish my organization did not use your products.

  10. Mark all as read from folder view

    Would like a one touch 'Mark All as Read' feature when in the Folders view so I can highlight a particular folder with multiple unread emails and mark them all as read without having to go into the folder and swipe select the messages. Similar to how you can right click on a folder in outlook and mark all the emails in that folder as read. Thanks.

  11. Email history log

    I've had other emails in the past that let you see when people have opened the email or started a reply in a list that you could pull up at any time, and it's helpful to know especially within a school setting, which is why I have to use this email.

  12. iPhone Search Results Should Include All Message in Conversation View

    In OWA for iPhone if you have the email view set to Conversation View and then you search your email, the search results only include the most recent email in a conversation rather than all emails that include the search term. The search results need to either include all emails individually, or group them by conversation with a way to expand them like you have in the non-search view. If you have your email sorted by Date Received, you will see all of the emails - it is only Conversation View that is hiding relevant messages...

  13. Scroll down or up an email

    When I have an email open why can't I go to the next one in 1 click?

  14. Why doesn't OWA copy ideas?

    The OWA app is a nice try of the programmers to provide email and calendar access to O365 accounts. But in my opinion it is not much more.

    Somehow the native apps of iOS, thus calendar, contacts, mail and maybe notes provide already full OWA functionality without all the odds of the OWA app.

    This app lacks so many small features, that it is unfortunately not very productive at all. Beside that I can not use it for my other accounts, as e.g. iCloud or Gmail.

    A small list of problems which I encountered comes here:
    • missing delete icons…

  15. Forward email attachments

    Allow user to forward (via a new email) an attachment(s) from a received email.

    Sometimes, it's helpful to send an attachment to a new recipient without including the text, etc from the email received. I incision this as a "press-and-hold" feature where the user press the attachment icon, waits for it to download, then presses and holds. that would bring up the "Open in" option list. One of the options would be Forward in new email.
