Hello,

I am trying to find a way to enable @mention feature in my Outlook. I went through couple of videos and posts but still not able to fix the issue. 

Ideally I should get the option checkbox “Suggest names to mention when I use the @ symbol in a message under Mail section but it is not available.

Also @mention features works perfectly in Web app but it does not work in Outlook app.  My account is hosted on Microsoft exchange so the feature should be available for me .

Thank you in advance.
