  1. Unable to open any PDFs

    All PDFs are being opened in Word Online. This is awful as they cannot be saved or stored nor resent by email. This has happened in the past ten days.

  3. Attachment will not download

    Sometimes an attached file will not download when requested. Appears to try for a while then gives up. Wireless is fine. iPad native mail app can get the file. Usually works a few hours later.

  4. Separate button that isolates attachments into its own lost

    I would like to be able to press a button that would show all attachments from all emails in a single list and then be able to file, save,print ,or share them.

  5. Icon, but no attachments on iPad?

    I tap and double-tap on the paper clip icon, but to no avail. Nothing happens, no pop-up or other venue appears to allow attaching a file.
    Too many email platforms for IOS for OWA to drop the ball like this!!

  6. Can't send attachment

    Recently I've found that when I press the attachment icon (paper clip icon) nothing happens and I'm unable to access files or pictures to send with my emails.

    Can you tell me when I need to do to get this attachment icon to work please?

    Regards

    Ché

  7. Attach a file?

    Am I missing something obvious? Is there any way I can attach a file to an email without downloading another app. I thought this would be a simple thing for an email app to do. If I'm going to be this limited there is no reason for me to not switch to another app.

  10. Insert Attachments

    The only feedback i have to give is to be able to send attachments via the app for convinience, an example being the capability of sending a word document from the onedrive app to someone throughout the outlook web app.

  12. Attachment gets renamed when saving

    Unclear why but when saving an attachment such as a ppt file to OneDrive, the attachment gets renamed to some arbitrary name losing the original name..

    Please preserve the original file name.

  15. One drive

    Can only attach files that are photos to emails
    The other outlook app offered by Microsoft allows you to link one drive and attach files from there

    Would be good if the attachments could still open even if there is no internet connection

  20. Attachments

    OWA on iPhone should allow for attachments to be inserted from the phone memory or Dropbox or other storage. Currently limited to photos on iPhone and one drive only. Not friendly
