Outlook 2016 (MSI) Cumulative Update for April 2024

A Cumulative Update has been released for Outlook 2016. It resolves the following issues;

  • Introduces a new group policy to block the external card Loop feature.
    The following three states are created for the new policy to make sure that Outlook follows the policy setting:
    • Don’t show automatically
    • Only show automatically within tenant
    • Always show automatically
  • Fixes an issue in which the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) doesn’t load correctly after you create a new policy for the blocked external card Loop.
