Ok, is this just me, or did something happen with Outlook for Mac?

 

In February, Office 2019 updated to 15.58 and I got the "New Outlook" for Mac.  I flipped the toggle switch, and was informed that Exchange support was not yet in the New Outlook, but was "coming soon".  (How on Earth Microsoft can put out a new version of Outlook without Exchange support is beyond me, but I guess that's a whole other thing...)

 

I had hoped that 15.59 was "soon" and that support would be included with it.  Instead, what I got was the complete removal of the New Outlook! 

 

Was that supposed to happen?  I haven't seen anything online about it, and I would expect something like this to raise a big fuss.

 

I switched to the Beta Channel, and I still don't see an option to switch to the new interface in 15.60.

 

Does anybody know what's going on?

I tried to submit the same question through Outlooks support feature and got a post from back informing me that for those users with on-premise Exchange (or local data), the new interface is not available, and that they're working on it.

So if this post helps anyone, there you go.
