Some New Features on Outlook

Microsoft announced the launch of a series of new features to appeal to business customers of its Teams platform on the month of March 2020. The integration of Teams and Outlook means that users can now move an email conversation directly from Outlook to a Teams chat. By clicking a button, you can be able to share a conversation from Teams to an email on Outlook. Microsoft has also added the ability to assign a tag to members of an organization so that users can better target their messages. Now, we’ll go over to what we have today (How to unsend email on Outlook).

Outlook can be used as a stand-alone application or can work with Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft SharePoint Server for multiple users in an organization, such as shared mailboxes and calendars, Exchange public folders, SharePoint lists, and meeting schedules.  Developers are enabled to create their own custom software that works with Outlook and Office components using Microsoft Visual Studio. So for those using Windows Phone devices, you can synchronize almost all Outlook data to Outlook mobile.

Outlook offers all features for you, which includes inbox for your most important emails, swipe gestures to archive and delete messages, you can schedule messages to return to your inbox anytime you want, you can also pin important messages to the top of your inbox, and also text-formatting features to personalize your outgoing emails.

Outlook also adds travel itineraries and flight plans from emails to your calendar, which attaches files from Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box. You can also edit Microsoft Office files in your inbox. Although your ISP may not allow you to send an email for another account from your location.

Another feature you can see on the platform is what is called ‘Premium Outlook’. With this, anyone who subscribes to Microsoft Office 365 Home or Office 365 Personal software packages receives Outlook with premium features as part of the application package. Not only that, with Office 365, but you’ll also be offered a 50 GB mailbox, improved malware scanning, ad-free inbox, offline email composition and automatic syncing capabilities, and a customized domain.
