  1. OWA App Crashing After Android O Update

    Been using the OWA app on my Note 8 for a while now. It was working just fine when my phone was running Android Nougat. Today I happen to update to latest Android Oreo but whenever now I am trying to open the app it is only loading a white blank screen on it's startup and simply closing itself after few seconds. How do I fix it??

  2. OWA retiring?

    The App now has a message stating that OWA is being retired on 5/15/18 and recommends switching to Outlook for Android.

    Have you incorporated the OWA features to Outlook for Android. We switched to OWA a few months ago because the syncing of messages was better on OWA and it helped separate work related messages (OWA) from personal emails (Outlook).

  4. Stuck downloading an app update

    I am stuck in an endless loop of "downloading an app update", "checking for new mail", and after it asks me to 'Refresh' to install the situation repeats. Uninstalling the OWA and reinstalling it does not work. I am on Android 7.1.

    Also I am sync with my office 365 bussiesd accont. I have four calender but sometimes they all show and sometimes the don't. I know this id a pre-release and I appreciate taking part in the development but how far away are you away from a release date? I use this for business and it is starting to be a little buggy.

  6. Update for Chrome 63.0.3239.111

    I'm stuck on the login screen because every time the app tries to open it says it needs to reset. I read online that i could downgrade my version of Chrome to make the problem disappear, but i believe you should update the app instead.

    (Using a Galaxy S8)

  8. I can not login to my corporate email exchange

    server: https://owabud.epam.com/owa
    Domain: BUDAPEST
    login: mylogin
    pass: my
    pass
    I got the information that I cannot establish connection with the server. It's a pity that there isn't any more debug info.
    As far as I know there are two instances of Epam's Exchange server.
    Please let me know if you can help me to connect. I'm able to login to web interface using the same credentials and the same server address.

  9. Notifications remain stale

    Notifications for email and calendar come to my phone but then remain there all day even after I've read the message or dismiss the reminder on my laptop Outlook MS Exchange. Sync these so that unread/new notifications disappear from phone if action is taken on another device.

  13. If we are using Microsoft Office Home, how is this supposed to work?

    I was fine with the beta and Microsoft Office Home; why cannot use it without having to pay more to change my Office account?

  15. Error message states that device must be encrypted

    During setup a message states that the device must be encrypted. Selecting "Continue" does nothing. The error is occurring on a Galaxy S7, which is encrypted by default.

  17. This app stops working every couple of days requiring it to be removed and re-installed.

    The app says it is offline and there is no way to get it back online without reinstalling the app which is a royal pain. The app will also no allow a password change - which means you again have to reinstall the app.

  19. CONTACTS SAVE

    Make EDIT CONTACTS actually work - it does not allow SAVE of any changes to a contact at all - the SAVE button simply does nothing after editing only CANCEL button works!
