    It's been a while since I have owned an iPhone and was wondering if there's a way to create an appointment directly from mail. I have an office 365 account that I can see appointments that sync from my office calendar and also set appts but not directly from the mail program.
    Is there a way to do this?

    Try the micorosft outlook app
    Microsoft Outlook on the App Store on iTunes

    I've looked at this solution, but am kind of concerned about the security of this application. It's not actually run by Microsoft and basically states that their company processes your emails and then updates the iPhone. It also states that it keeps your credentials on file and also shares info with "Microsoft" affiliates based on your email content.

    This app is made and maintained by Microsoft, so you are obviously misinformed.
    Don't worry, you will survive, this isn't android where every action you take is visible to google et al.

    All of these companies use your information to a point. Even MicroSoft.

    I came from Blackberry long ago, welcome to the World of Apple!!!

    Actually Microsoft does "oversee" the company that they bought(acompli) First like of the Eula is "we collect and process your email address and credentials, carry out transactions that you authorize. We may access,disclose and preserve your personal information including private content such as content of your emails ,other private communications or files in private folders.

    As much as Microsoft "oversees" acompli, I still don't trust it. Especially when it spells out that it will keep your private info and share content of emails.

    End user license agreements are a very telling thing. Those and "privacy statements". I have sensitive info to protect. I don't need another company combing though business that includes non public personal info of mine or of my clients as well. New to the iPhone I may be, but not to security.

    Then feel free to stick to your blackberry. If more than 50% of the world's top enterprises are adopting iOS, I don't see why you should feel so strongly about this.

    If the mail app has dates in it hyperlinks them so that when you click it opens your calendar. Is this what you are referring to?

    o365 user here.
    for O365, you'll need to schedule appointment from the ical. when you get an invite, you'll see it in the ical inbox.

    My blackberry allows to set appointments from my enterprise email just by pressing and holding and it pops up a tab that says "make appointment " and it makes the appointment with the email message accessible when you open the appointment

    Just because people are adopting iOS in droves doesn't necessarily mean it's the most secure. It's the people of those enterprises that want to use personal devices. As of 2012 iOS and android are approved devices for the dod. This is the byod revolution. Cheaper for business to have you bring your current device rather than outfitting you with a new own at their expense.

    So if you are so paranoid, return your iPhone, stick to blackberry. We've tried to help, but ultimately, no one is going to convince you except for yourself.

    Sounds like Google and GMail. Gives Google the right to read your GMail and use what ever information in your email anyway they wish.

    I asked a how to question, or more like a can it be done question. The outlook app was suggested and expressed my concern and you dismissed it. I explained my position and you aren't fond of it. Sorry if you seemingly think that I'm not listening to other responders suggestions. You just didn't like my answer after you sited me as "misinformed" and I quoted the Eula.
    if you like the outlook application then use it. I'm just trying to find another option if there is one

    Not sure if exactly what you are asking but I receive meeting invites all the time on my mail.app and I click on the attachment and it put event in my calendar app - where I can accept or decline.
    My company, so far, requires Blackberry for work email.

    Apparently the forum caught up with the request from tapatalk. When I tried to post the question at first, tapatalk came back twice with a "post" error and to try again later. I guess it finally caught up

    Strange keyboard with only letters. I guess somebody would like it. Seems pointless to me.
