Outlook COM Add-Ins Nearing the End of the Line



A recent Practical365.com article got me thinking about the Report Message and Report Phishing Outlook add-ins and how the new Monarch client can’t use COM add-ins. Microsoft is busily updating its add-ins to move away from COM to embrace the new approach based on HTML and JavaScript. If Microsoft is taking this action, I hope the same is happening in ISVs and in-house development teams who generated COM add-ins in the past.

Has Microsoft announced an official End of Life date for COM add-ins?
Not that I know of. I imagine we'll get that when Outlook classic (Win32) is deprecated.
