As per the article, it appears that Microsoft Outlook is set to get a new feature soon that will make composing emails a bit easier. Microsoft is working on Outlook’s new text prediction feature which is similar to Gmail’s Smart Compose.
The predictive text function offers users predictive text and phrases when writing emails. By pressing the Tab key or the right arrow key, users would be able to recognize the prediction texts and sentences.
Simply persevere with sorting would also disregard the suggestion. Doing so will wipe out the suggestion. The firm notes that each of the Outlooks on the internet app and Outlook.com will have this feature.
Microsoft says this function can also be turned off by going to Settings > Show all Outlook settings > Mail > Compile and address > Predictions of text, and uncheck Suggest terms or phrases as I click the check box.
As of now, the choice Text predictions is not available in the menu Settings. But the feature is actually classified as “In Development” and will be launched in “May CY2020,” according to Microsoft’s 365 public roadmap.
Outlook also gets the function of “submit later,” which is already available on Gmail. As it states, the feature would allow users to schedule their emails when they are expected to be unavailable to send them later.
This feature could be useful particularly when a user wants to send an email at an odd time, e.g. early in the morning when you are usually asleep.
The user can subsequently submit the email by entering the date and time the email is to be sent. The feature is expected to appear on Microsoft’s 365 roadmap before the end of June.
Microsoft today rolled out a new feature called Respond All Storm Security in Office 365 worldwide for those unaware. The app will block replies if the user has 10 times used Reply all choice and within an hour has sent more than 5,000 messages.
This feature is intended to help IT teams the the effect of reply-all mail storms that occur due to employee negligence, and place pressure on email servers. This could also lead to an attack by a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS).
