  2. Update...???

    Team,

    Every time this app has update is never updates like a normal app and doesn't allow utilization, even after I hit refresh app. I know updates are important... However, Please remember utilization of the app for the user is important too; and when this app does this is becomes useless... Please help change this, I've seen the issue every time and this is first time speaking out and not just waiting and hoping all is well. Than you in advance for hopefully fixing this issue moving forward!

    Note: I have an Iphone 7s plus.

    Best regards,
    Kevin

  4. Email comment

    I have never had so many problems with understanding this email system in my life. This system is just too complicated. Ugh!

  6. Search is clunky

    Searching contacts or mail seems very clunky having to click 2-3 times before the keyboard is available to start typing keywords. Very frustrating.

  9. This app needs a logout button

    If my phone is stolen and gets in the wrong hands it could be pretty damaging. Instead of deleting the app a logout button would be wonderful.

  10. Poor Update

    Guys
    For 24 hrs now I've been unable to access my emails.
    I'm getting a update notice that does nothing!
    No advice or instructions on how to access my emails.
    I'm on holiday & need to rely on using my phone app to access emails.
    Please sort it out.

  11. Remove the passcode

    I already have to use a passcode to unlock my phone. I do not need to use a passcode to view my email also. At least make it optional.

  17. Passcode

    Passcode doesn't work even when turning that option on. Still doesn't let me put a passcode in.

  19. Worthless!!!

    I have deleted and redownloaded this app 7 times on my iPhone. Now that it's finally not crashing, it's taking 15 minutes to load and I am still not able to read any of my emails. I use this for my work emails and if I don't have access to them, then I can't do my job.

    App experience would be a lot better if the startup can be faster
