Update on the new Outlook for Windows

Hi All,

It’s already a few months since i wrote an Blog Article about New Outlook for Windows - Public Preview.

I have recently watched the Youtube video “Update on the new Outlook for Windows”

They shared the Timeline of the “New Outlook / One Outlook”

You can now provide Feedback. This will give them some valuable Informations on what Functions are missing and inputs for priorization of these Features.

They also provided an Update on the Features

One thing i really like is that now the Automapped Mailboxes are shown

Controlling “Try the new Outlook”

Set-CASMailbox -Identity <MailboxIdentity> -OneWinNativeOutlookEnabled <$true | $false>

There are now Policies to control switch “Try the new Outlook”

Or you can simply control it via Registry
