New Outlook

This new Windows Experience will replace the existing Mail and Calendar apps with the classic version of New Outlook. Recently, New Outlook was also rolled out to Apple’s Mac. This app shares similarities with the web interface, allowing you to connect your personal and work accounts and third-party email services like Gmail, Yahoo, and Apple iCloud. IMAP account support is said to be coming.

As this is still in development, there are a lot of missing features, including the inability to view emails offline and limited support for third-party emails. It only supports Outlook, Gmail, and Yahoo. Ahead of a stable rollout to a wider audience, the company is said to be bringing support for more emails and improvements to New Outlook.
