New Outlook for Web: Now known as “Outlook on the Web”, the updated online service has new tools and capabilities including Sweep, Pin, Undo, single-line inbox view, inline reply, the ability to paste inline images, an option to suggest new meeting times, better HTML rendering, and new themes.

With all these updates, Outlook 2016 now looks to give you lightning fast search, remove low priority mail and make sure everyone has the right access with modern attachments. Office 2016 allows you to share a OneNote notebook with as many people as you want. Knowing every little detail about how your business is running is essential information, and Power BI can bring it all together for you. Data Loss Prevention, managed availability, automatic recovery from storage failures and an improved web-based Exchange admin center are all part of the latest release. For those who still – 10 years later – complain about the transition from menus to the ribbon interface, you’ll now find a nondescript text box labeled “Tell me…” along with all the usual ribbon tabs. Additionally, you can sort your inbox based on Mentions so you can locate thread in which you were mentioned. It’s nice not to have to wait for new features. Interesting to note that there’s no mention for Windows 10 Universal or Windows Phone support. This is unashamedly a play to mimic the effortless real-time collaboration in Google Docs, and it mostly works. Including an @ symbol in the body of the email will draw up a list of contacts and automatically append said individual to your “To” line of emails.
