  1. Make this work like the desktop version with the attachment feature of outlook iOS

    If you would make this work like the desktop version. Then add the attachment features of outlook IOS and finally allow for text sizing so I can use small size fonts this would be awesome

    Outlook for IOS
    OWA
    OWA Desktop

    These 3 together would make for the best email - no one could come close. But they all have good features and bad so none are really that great but together - it would be awesome.

    Im a heavy user of email on iPhone - desktop using windows.

  2. Unable to move files

    Recently every time I use this app and attempt to move an email, the app freezes up and I have to close out of it. -Also on another note, there is no way to create new folders with this app. I have to use a different device if I ever need to create a new folder

  4. Draft folder

    Why there is no new updates for more then one year. Outlook looks fine but OWA is better, it works with Draft folder. Outlook doesn't support draft folder between devices.

  7. Cancel mark as junk

    On more than one occasion I have accidentally marked email as junk when I intended to flag (as this is just below in the list). Problem is that the resulting dialogue only lets me choose between reporting or not reporting there is no way to cancel it. I have had to close down the app and restart to avoid having the selected message moved to junk :(

  8. Stop Outlook Event Add On

    You think you've found an event? No, you haven't. What you've found is my rage every time I'm trying to scroll through an important email and Outlook suddenly decides to try and force me to schedule a non existent event. Is there a way to disable the feature that hotlinks the text around dates/times? Often times when I try to back out of it, the App freezes up and I have to close it and restart. Thanks.

  9. Can't file emails any more

    The latest update seems to have broken the "move to file" feature.

    The dialog box pops up but doesn't allow folders to be selected.

    The application is then frozen until it can be shut down and restarted.

  13. Folders

    There has to be a way to make it easier to make folders and rules to automatically sort your incoming mail from Amazon or important business clients etc.

  14. Make app consistent between iPad & iPhone

    A swipe from right to left on the iPad just marks an email for action. On an iPhone it moves it to the delete folder. The action should be consistent, preferable to allow marking/selecting of multiple items on the iPhone, like on the iPad, for further action.

  15. Search by keywords in emails

    In addition to using Search button to look up person by email, maybe should consider expanding the functionality of Search to look up keyword found in inbox emails.

  17. Search function means email can't be read

    If you search for an email with the search command, you cannot then read the body of the email.. only the subject line.

  19. Show number of unread messages

    I am often unaware that I have unread emails, because there is nothing that shows up telling me that I do.
