Windows 11 is gradually updating and upgrading various existing pre-installed programs, from appearance to function more in line with the style of the new system, including drawing, notepad, screenshots, etc.


The next upgrade will be mail, which will not only be refreshed from the inside out, but will also be placed under the brand name of Outlook, named "One Outlook", and the code name is also very domineering "Project Monarch".


The mail program that comes with Windows 11/10 is designed in accordance with the principles of Fluent Design and UWP. It is very simple and easy to use, but it is not rich in functions.

One Outlook will conduct a small-scale beta test at the end of March or early April, open beta in summer, and be officially completed in autumn, so it is expected to be integrated in the Windows 11 22H2 upgrade.


In addition to supporting Windows 11, it will also be ported to Windows 10, and will support macOS in the future, and there is a web version, but it will not immediately replace the existing mail program, but will temporarily coexist with it and be pre-installed at the same time.


From the leaked screenshots, the interface design of One Outlook is very similar to the Outlook web version, with rounded windows and icons, which are easy to use and consistent with the system style.


Functionally, it will also seamlessly integrate with the Windows 11 start menu, taskbar, notifications, etc., making it convenient for users to send and receive emails at any time.
