Microsoft has unveiled a feature that can help keep users out of email-related hot water.
Normally, when a message on Microsoft 365 cannot be delivered immediately due to a transient error, it is queued and retried periodically until the message is delivered or until the message expires 24 hours later.
However, admins will now be able to customize the message expiration time to be less than a day, which could save the user bacon when 24 hours is just too late to know if your message hasn’t. not been sent.
What’s next for Office 365
The news comes as Microsoft has big plans on the horizon for the future of its email clients.
One Outlook, previously named Monarch during its development phase, is intended to unify all of Microsoft’s disparate email services in one place, with the web application serving as its foundation.
The project will mean a single version of Outlook for Windows and Mac that will replace the default Mail and Calendar apps on Windows 10.
The new product is currently available to Office Insiders Beta Channel users and is currently only available to paying members.
According to a Microsoft blog, the new product will have a host of new online collaboration features, including the ability to customize calendars and tag cloud files just like you would usernames.
Unfortunately, Microsoft has also just hit users of its email services, including Office 365 and Microsoft 365 software suites, with price hikes.
The price increase was first announced by Microsoft 365 vice president Jared Spataro last August in a blog post and went into effect March 15 after a series of delays.
The price hike was billed as Office 365’s “first substantial price update” since its launch just over a decade ago.
