Try the new Out­look.com beta

Web User - - What’s New Online -

Mi­crosoft is re­launch­ing Out­look.com and it wants to know what you think about the re­vamped web­mail ser­vice. To find out, it has in­tro­duced a beta ver­sion that you can ac­cess by tog­gling a switch in the top right-hand cor­ner of your in­box. If you can’t see it, re­place ‘/owa/’ in the Out­look.com web ad­dress with ‘/mail/’, press En­ter and the new in­ter­face should ap­pear.

As well as a fresher look, its new fea­tures in­clude speed­ier search­ing (with a new search box across the top of the page), file and photo pre­views that ap­pear to the right of con­ver­sa­tions, and easy ac­cess to emoji and GIFS. Images you send or re­ceive are now all saved in one place and you can per­son­alise your in­box to help you find friends and other peo­ple more quickly.

There’s also a new Quick Sug­ges­tions fea­ture, which de­tects key­words such as football clubs, flights and restau­rants, and pro­vides links to in­for­ma­tion about them. If you don’t like the new look, you can switch back to the old Out­look.com when­ever you like. Up­dates to Cal­en­dar and Peo­ple are promised in the fu­ture, and Mi­crosoft says it will read all user feed­back. www.out­look.com
