  1. to resend an email

    ability to resend an email without having to forward it or copy and paste it. This is a feature in the native mail that's very useful. When implementing this, you can also change which email address you are sending it from, while leaving original message intact.

  2. Filter email that is only to me

    The OWA for iPhone app has a very handy option in the Quick Filter selections: To Me.

    I find myself switching back to the OWA app specifically to use this feature to filter through the "noise" of distribution lists.

  3. Badge count of new mail rather than unread

    I would like the option for the badge to show the count of new mail since the last time I opened the app, rather than the number of unread messages.

    I leave mail unread when I intend to get back to it later, but I usually don't, so I have tons of unread email and I don't care about that count. I just want to know if I have new email.

  6. Faster date/time picker for calendar appts

    The biggest bottleneck in the workflow of setting up a new calendar item is adjusting the start or end time (when needed).

    This is because the traditional scroll wheel approach is terribly inefficient and is really unnecessary for most outlook users.

    How often do we set a meeting to start at 10:19 or 2:23?

    It would be soooo much faster to either 1) have the scroll wheel only display 15 min increments so it doesn't take so long to get from 10:15 to 10:45 or 2) have more of an increment/decrement button that would adjust the time by +15 min…

  8. Saving files

    Thanks for your update in attaching files from different storages. Still there is a flaw in saving files in incoming emails. I should be able to save all files in to a desired folder of the storage instead of storing a single file in to "outlook" folder one by one.

  11. "All day" view unnecessary

    All Day takes up too much visual real estate especially since most people don't have all day events. It should either be optional or take up a lot less room. Or show up only if there is an all day event

  13. Ability to have separate notifications per account.

    For those who have more than one account on the app, it would be very helpful to be able to somehow pin or see each account separately on the home screen similar to the way the Windows Phone Email app does.

    I love your app, but I have two accounts I need to monitor. I would like a way to be able to slit the notifications so visually they are separate.

  14. Configurable in-message action buttons

    It would be great if I had the ability to configure the action buttons at the top of the screen when viewing a message. The trash can and archive icons are default options, but if they were configurable it would be great. E.g. Mark as unread, move to, etc. thanks

  20. Pasting tables into an email

    It would be great to be able to copy a selection of cells from Excel and paste them into an email without losing the the cell (table) structure.
    Currently I use the IOS email program if I need to do this.
