  1. Goes Offline and won't come back online

    On my Nexus 5 with Lollipop, the app randomly goes offline every few days, and will not reconnect without either uninstalling/reinstalling, or disabling device administrator, force stopping the app, clearing data/cache, and then setting up the account again.

  2. Touch is too sensitive and opens emails when trying to scroll

    When trying to scroll through emails the app thinks you clicked an email and opens it instead of scrolling. It is almost impossible to scroll through folders or emails in the new version.

  3. App asks to reset every time I open it.

    Every time I start the app I get an error that says "Reset Owa - You need to reset OWA. This will delete any data not sent to the server." Then I have to reset the app and re set up my entire email.

    Can get email and calendar just fine but notifications still don't work. No sound...no popup...no blinking light...anything. ETA on new version this works on. Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

  5. Notifications

    Why aren't notifications for new emails working? Notifications for calendar appointments work but email notifications do not.

    The app respects a user’s mobile device policy with regards to simple PIN, complex PIN and encryption. Can you provide more details about your mobile device policy?

  7. Stopped updating It notifies that there has been a new email but will not refresh and load the new emails.

    Stopped updating. It notifies that there has been a new email but will not refresh and load the new emails. Got it to update 2 days ago by re-installing but then yesterday it stopped updating again. Also now intermittently says "to view items in offline mode select all" when there is a connection and should not be offline.

  8. 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.

  9. Compose New Email Button Does Nothing (intermittent)

    A lot of the time after launching the OWA for Android app, then clicking the "new email" button, nothing happens.

    Sometimes the new email screen shows up after a long time (~10 seconds later), and sometimes it shows up right away.

  12. It is too slow.

    Initialize and change screens is too slow.

    The app is good but, a little bit faster would make great success.

  13. won't allow uninstall

    I need to uninstall and reinstall since I mistakenly chose device admin during setup which won't seem to allow me to proceed through the set new password screen. I can't uninstall until I deactivate and the deactivate button doesn't seem to do anything.

  16. problem with encryption

    I installed the app on my xperia Z5 compact. Followed all the steps including encryption of the mobile. Nevertheless after encryption, the modile restart and now if I want to connect to OWA, it keeps on saying your mobile needs to be encrypted and stays on this page with option continue or reinitialize. If I press continue it would come back on the same page.

  18. Setting up this app to work offline - NOOOOOOO!

    I have been using this app for some time - probably many months or so (can't remember when it first came out). I use it on my Samsung Galaxy 4, and Galaxy Tab S.

    Recently, about a week to 10 days ago, whenever I open the app - either first thing in the morning, or continuously throughout the day - it always opens with "Setting up this app to work offline. This may take a few minutes".

    And they are correct - it does take a few minutes - each and every time I open it. Started happening on both…
