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.

I second this post. We have a dependency in that we need Shared Mailboxes to work. Also if they can work like the Outlook for Windows works in terms of them automatically be discovered by the client and showing would be great.

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.
