Email is still the most common way many people communicate at work. New Outlook experiences in Office 2016 Preview, Windows 10 IT Pro and Developer Preview and on phones provide the richest Outlook capabilities to date.

On the desktop, Outlook in the Office 2016 IT Pro and Developer Preview is cloud-connected, it innovates on how attachments are discovered and used, integrates with machine learning to de-clutter your inbox and has an updated look and feel.

Outlook Mail and Calendar in Windows 10 provides rich authoring capabilities, improved touch support with new swipe gestures for inbox triage and pinch to zoom in the calendar; it also works with a broader list of email services and protocols. Outlook Mail and Calendar are part of recent Windows 10 Technical Preview builds.

Outlook for iOS and Outlook for Android lets you do many of the tasks you might have previously reserved for Outlook on your PC of Mac.
