Microsoft Outlook for Windows supports Apple iCloud accounts

Outlook is a popular email client that allows users to manage their emails, calendars, and contacts in one place. One of the great features of Outlook is that it supports a wide range of email accounts, including iCloud accounts. After several months of testing, Microsoft finally launched a new Outlook for Windows app. Existing users of the app have found that the app now supports iCloud accounts and Gmail accounts.

Users can now add iCloud, Yahoo and IMAP accounts to Outlook, thereby avoiding a series of cumbersome operations of switching websites or apps to access emails from different service providers, thus saving users time and energy. Microsoft stated that the reason for developing the new version is to expand the audience platform, no longer limited to classic Win32 applications, web versions, and Win10 apps. This makes it a cross-platform software with the same experience.

In addition, the new version of Outlook will support offline functionality in the future, allowing users to mark, move, delete and compose messages without being connected to the Internet. Among other things, the app supports storing emails, calendar events, and contacts on the device so users can view them offline. Microsoft also says these are the first batch of offline features, hinting that more such features will be added later.
