  1. 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...

  2. Scroll down or up an email

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

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

    It would be nice if there were a way to have a few sentences prepared and able to quickly paste into replies.

  14. Browser based OWA sync to 365 OWA

    I think that I cannot simply import my IE based remote OWA into 365. This means that my historic email and folder structures are wasted and useless. I didn't really want to setup everything AGAIN.
