Looks very pretty, but seriously lacking needed functionality
The New Outlook really needs to be a fit for purpose tool, its lacking so many important features that it is impossible to use as is.
- Lack Imap (and POP) support so using with anything other than a main 365 account is impossible.
- Lack display of shared mailboxes
- Lots of Addons not working / or even displaying (Citrix Files in my case)
After this I stopped looking further - its a total non starter without these basic functions. Just a pretty skin that doesn't work.
So my idea is - Get it working with basic functions then push to the release platform. At this stage I wouldn't even consider it Beta.

You'd consider it alpha? In this day and age, an email client that lacks IMAP and POP3 support shouldn't even be considered pre-alpha.
