The Mail and Calendar apps for Windows are being replaced with the new Outlook for Windows. At the end of 2024 we will be ending support for the Mail and Calendar apps for Windows.

2023-08-31MC TitleWindows Mail and Calendar are becoming Outlook(Updated) Windows Mail and Calendar are becoming Outlook
2023-08-31MC How AffectFor organization administrators the new Outlook for Windows will offer greater levels of control compared to Mail and Calendar such as the ability to (1) respect conditional access policies (2) enable/disable integration of features like Dropbox, Linkedin, Google Drive, ect. (3) enable/disable certain folders in Outlook and many more capabilities which can be found on the OWA Mailbox Policy Parameter page.
Users within your tenant, who have accounts signed into the Mail and Calendar app, should already see a toggle in the application. Clicking that toggle will bring users to the new Outlook for Windows.


Over the coming weeks, Mail & Calendar app users will begin to see additional notices in those apps stating that support will end in 2024 and they will need to migrate to the new Outlook for Windows.
[When this will happen:]
Important: In late August of 2023, we will also begin a process of auto-migrating Mail & Calendar app users to the new Outlook for Windows with an option to go back if they choose. Users can go back to the current Mail and Calendar apps by clicking the toggle in the new Outlook for Windows.
