On September 10th, when Targeted Release customers can opt-in to the early version of the new Outlook on the web, there will be some features that won't be available yet in that early version of the new experience.

If you need to use a feature that is not yet available you can opt-out of the early version and opt-in again later, as often as you want.


See below for features not yet available on September 10th.

2. Folders and Message List

  • Public folders - No suppport to create a calendar in a public folder or manage/share it

We are working to bring these features soon but you can always use them by opting out of the early version of the new Outlook on the web.
