    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?

    Go to settings->Security->Device Administrators
    Untick the OWA app.
    Now go back to Apps and uninstall it
    Now you can reset your pin back to numeric only

    Admin - you are wrong. I am an O365 reseller & global admin. I installed the app, and it demanded a fully complex password (caps/numbers/special) - and worse, it locked out the normal mail accounts as well, as they then demanded it. Having set this on my phone, I can now not change it back - and I have checked all our policies through Powershell, and even allocated myself a no password required policy. No change. No ability to uninstall the app either. Looks like I am going to have to factory reset my phone to get it back. Not happy at all!

    I have worked out how to uninstall it!

    Go to settings->Security->Device Administrators
    Untick the OWA app.
    Now go back to Apps and uninstall it
    Now you can reset your pin back to numeric only
