The New Outlook
The New Outlook seems not to support email.
When I click on it I get: The following accounts and items aren't supported and won't be available in the new Outlook.
It then lists all my email accounts, IMAP, POP, Gmail and Outlook plus On My Computer folders
Microsoft, Please make the new Outlook compatible with Exchange On-Prem!!
this is also a deal breaker for me.
Yes, new Outlook currently only supports Gmail accounts, but they are already working on it. I'm not sure if they intended to remove it for good, but there was a huge backlash, so they'll change it anyway.
Only my Exchange account escapes the notice. My G Suite and "On My Computer folders" emails are both doing this. G Suite already is sub-par in existing Outlook though (emails duplicated in Inbox and Archive).
Hope the lack of support for non-Exchange email is just a beta thing. I have years of archives on the local computer folders and just having one mail client to check for work email isn't something I want to lose.

I won't switch to "the new outlook" until I am sure I won't lose all my email. Anyone find a work around?
