Windows Mail and Calendar are becoming Outlook

Windows Mail and Calendar are becoming Outlook

Microsoft has announced the phase-out of Windows Mail and Calendar apps which will be replaced with the new Outlook for Windows by the end of 2024. The new Outlook promises to enhance productivity and help users to be in complete control of their inbox. The features include Microsoft Loop, message reminders, file and people suggestions while drafting an email, and many more. With the new Outlook, users can enjoy drag and drop emails as tasks, pinning and snoozing messages, and working hours and location options. For organization administrators, the new Outlook for Windows will provide better levels of control, such as the ability to respect conditional access policies, enable/disable integration of features like LinkedIn, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. The process of auto-migrating Mail & Calendar app users to the new Outlook for Windows will start in late August 2023, with an option to go back if they choose. Tenant admins do not need to take any action, but it is advised that they inform users that Mail and Calendar will no longer be supported after the end of 2024.
