Summary:
The new Outlook for Windows will open web links in Microsoft Edge side-by-side with the email, enhancing productivity. This feature will be rolled out from late July to late September 2024 and applies to links from AAD and MSA accounts. Organizations can configure this behavior using the Cloud Policy service or Administrative Templates for Microsoft 365 Apps. Users will be notified of this change and can manage their preferences in Outlook settings.

Details:
To help increase productivity while working online, web links from Azure Active Directory (AAD) accounts and Microsoft (MSA) accounts in the new Outlook for Windows app will open in Microsoft Edge in a single view showing the opened link side-by-side with the email it came from.
We're adding this to the new Outlook for windows to have a consistent experience across our applications. If you have previously managed this change for the classic Outlook for Windows (MC545904, MC548092, MC541626) or for Teams (MC669480), your configuration will also apply to the new Outlook for Windows. If you wish to maintain this configuration across all three apps, no action is required.
Note: This does not change the default browser setting in Windows.
