2024-07-23MC prepareNo action is required to prepare for this rollout. You may want to notify your users about this change and update any relevant documentation as appropriate.
If you would like to disable this feature, set the new Exchange PowerShell -OwaMailboxPolicy cmdlet parameter OfflineEnabledWin to False. When disabled, no items will be saved on the user’s device, which also means users will not receive the performance improvements described in this message. Any items saved prior to disabling the feature will be deleted.
To use OfflineEnabledWin, the mailbox account must be the primary account in the new Outlook. To prevent end users from changing the primary account, set the parameter ChangeSettingsAccountEnabled to False.
Note: Another parameter, OfflineEnabledWeb, will be available when offline capabilities for Outlook on the web are rolled out (separate from this rollout, and not yet planned).

Before rollout, we will update this post with revised documentation.
