New Microsoft Outlook for Windows: Automatically configure accounts with new policy

New Microsoft Outlook for Windows: Automatically configure accounts with new policy

A new policy from Microsoft is set to ease the process of configuring accounts with the new Microsoft Outlook for Windows. With this policy, accounts will be configured automatically based on the user's Active Directory Primary SMTP address. The rollout of this feature is set to begin by mid-June 2024, and the complete rollout is expected by early July 2024. Through the Microsoft Intune admin center, admins can control this policy, which is initially disabled by default. This feature is aimed at making the account setup process easier on managed devices while ensuring that company policies are respected. Users will not be able to change their primary SMTP address on first-time login after the rollout. Admins are advised to configure this policy for specific groups. It is expected to be available globally.

For more information on how to manage this policy, visit the Microsoft Intune admin center and navigate to Apps > Policies for Office Apps. No admin action is required before the specified rollout date. Users will be required to enter their email address when logging in to the new Outlook for Windows on their first login before the feature is activated. This update is expected to enhance account setup and provide an easier and faster way to configure accounts with the new Microsoft Outlook for Windows.
