  1. The app consumes lots of memory and is very slow.

    I have new Samsung J5 with Quad Core, 1.5GB RAM and it takes 20 seconds to load initial screen. Also very slow and not responsive app. Same experience on BQ E4.5, Quad Code with 1 GB RAM and Tablet Acer A3-20. Needs to be thought again and optimized.

  2. 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.

  3. need contact sync both ways.

    When I use the dialer it doesn't pull the contacts from OWA and OWA doesn't sync with my phones contact list. This makes it useless to manager a large contact list.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  12. OWA resets after adding second Exchange account to stock email app

    I added a second Exchange account to the stock email account, since OWA only supports one account. Unbeknownst to me, this required OWA to reset, wiping out my first account, so I didn't receive emails. I understand this is probably caused by security settings, but at the very least, I would expect a notification from OWA that it needs to reset.

  15. Password change and connection

    App needs to validate if e-mail account had password change as it stops refreshing and there is no option to update those connection details.

  16. Keep running in background, automatically download new email, maintain cache.

    Starting the app takes over 10 seconds to get past the loading screen. I wish this app would stay alive in the background or keep a local cache so I don't have to wait. It should also automatically download new emails instead of waiting for me to open the app...and then wait for the emails to load.
    I'm looking for a streamlined process!

  17. Display width set incorrectly

    Sometimes when switching views the main menu display is set to the wrong width, so I have to scroll left to see the "two squares and a rectangle" icon and right to see the mail/people/calendar icons.
    Usually, the display is set to the width of the screen, so everything is on a single screen.

  18. Notifications

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

  20. Adding contacts from Android app to OWA address book, but they don't show up in People or Outlook

    Both my aftermarket dialer app and the factory contacts app can add contacts to the OWA (exchange) address book, and can see them there as well as the other contacts from OWA people, but they arn't seen in OWA people or on outlook.

    I love being able to use my outlook contacts in my android apps, but i also want to maintain them (especially add to them) from my normal android apps and not have to go through a special process to get them in my outlook contact folder.

    Your close, keep going!

    Using office 365 with a Note-4 running…
