  1. Unsent message notice bug fix

    Fix bug! Says i have "1 unsent message" when i don't! I've checked all of my sent items and outbox/outbox sub folders and I do not have any unsent messages. So the alert is showing and it should not show that I have any unsent messages :(

        • Ability to copy an appointment

          It would be useful to be able to copy / duplicate an appointment, modifying the date and time on the new meeting. Especially useful for events that repeat unpredictably.

          • Compose screen turns white

            When composing a message in iOS 8.0, compose window turns white but cursor is still visible. I'll se if going to 8.0.2 helps.

            • Updating email

              How many times do I have to enter my password for this app only for it to say wrong password when it's clearly not. Please fix this, otherwise this app is useless.

              • Can only type so much before message cuts off.

                Can only type so much before message cuts off. Letters disappear and message quits functioning eg. Can't send Candi delete or backspace without closing OWA and restarting.

                  • Viewing Emails

                    Why is it that I can't view the entire email at once? Having to slide the screen back and forth in order to view two or three extra words is pointless and time consuming.

                          • drop the email spellcheck please -

                            or tell me how to turn it off.
                            the new outlook spellcheck has a glitch whereby as i type sentences they are not visible on screen until I press <return>
                            very annoying
                            and I don't need a spellchecker anyway.

                            • Moving messages

                              OWA should remember the state how the tree of folders was already opened, as it does in Outlook!
                              Or even offer a specific folder in the first place as BlackBerry does, based on the subject, the sender and previous moves!

                              • Sort by categories

                                I use categories to set email as "WIP", "To Do", "Done", etc.
                                If I can't sort by those categories this is simply useless for me.
                                Outlook is a professional app. Please make full-function.

                                        • Left swipe

                                          Swiping left offers the options:-
                                          • mark read
                                          • mark unread
                                          • file
                                          • flag
                                          • delete

                                          I would prefer:-
                                          • mark read OR unread, depending whether email is already opens nor closed (otherwise one of the options doesn't make sense)
                                          • archive
                                          • file
                                          • flag
                                          • delete

                                          The archive option moves emails to the Archive sub folder, like in the PC version.

                                          Thank you.
