Outlook for Microsoft 365 Apps Feature Update for February 2023

Microsoft released the February 2023 feature update of Outlook for Microsoft 365 Apps in the Current Channel.

Unfortunately, it is yet a very uneventful release when it comes to Outlook.

Although there is nothing specified for Outlook, there are 1 feature and 1 fix mentioned for other Office apps which are Outlook/email related;

  • User-defined permissions now support domain name restrictions
    When you choose a sensitivity label configured for user-defined permissions, domain names can now be used to restrict file access to all individuals from that domain.
    For example, you can specify “someone@example.com” or “@example.com,” and permissions will be restricted based on either the individual or all individuals within the example domain. (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint)
  • We fixed an issue that when clicking on an email notification with @mention in a comment, caused Excel to close unexpectedly if the workbook was already open and was in a hidden window.

Note: Depending on your installation type, this update can be installed via the Update Now button in Outlook or the Microsoft Store and updates Outlook to: Version 2302 (Build 16130.20218).
