  3. 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.

  5. I need to be able to see my other contact folders and especially contacts from corporate shared mailboxes!

    This is very important. As a business we put our customers in our a shared mailbox contact folder, and our vendors in another one etc. I can see them in outlook, I can see my contact folders in office 365 people, but i can see neither in OWA for android.

    For business users with multiple people working in a company this is very important.

    Please implement!

  10. 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!

  11. Letter index for contacts

    When scrolling through contacts, there should be an alphabetic scroll bar on the side so you can jump to a specific letter.

  12. 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.

  14. Notifications

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

  17. Send E-mail With a Different Sender

    It's possible to send e-mails from one's secondary e-mail address on Office365.com. Please make it possible on OWA too. It limits your productivity if you can't switch to a different e-mail address on your mobile phone.

    E.g. My main e-mail address is name@mycompany.com. An e-mail needs to be sent from complaints@mycompany.com. You can do that on office365.com, but not on OWA.

    BTW: You can do EXACTLY that with the app from the Office365 competitor that starts with a G. So please make it possible.

  19. 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…
