We’ve been waiting for the arrival of One Outlook, the email client called to replace Mail in Windows 10 and Windows 11, for quite some time. It’s been a little over two years since we first learned of Microsoft’s plans to in this regard, in a movement that also advances in the unification of names, by making all the company’s email solutions, both in application and service format, called Outlook.
A few weeks ago we learned that the arrival of the new email client would not be too late, although at that time there was still no specific data, that is, neither dates nor how it would reach all users, since shortly before it had already started to be distributed among insiders. Shortly after, more users of Microsoft 365 test channels They finally saw that they could test One Outlook on their systems. For this purpose, Mail shows a control, in the upper right corner, that allows you to test the preview version.
By clicking on it, Mail closes automatically and, a few seconds later, the new One Outlook opens, which, on its first run, asks the user to make some basic settings. After completing this brief process, the main interface of the mail client will be displayed, which renounces the visual cleanliness of Mail but, in return, offers much more information at a glancewhich makes it more optimal to catch up in a moment.

Well, as we can read in this tweetit seems that the wait is about to end, since One Outlook will start rolling out on Current Channel in early April. In this way, and although the pace of deployment that Microsoft will use is not yet known, in a few weeks users of the final version of Mail will begin to offer them the possibility of making the leap. However, we can be sure that this change will be optional for a while.
Let’s remember that Current Channel is the default update option for Microsoft 365, and that it receives updates once a month. Therefore, we must wait for the publication of the April update, from which hand we will begin to receive it.
