Outlook for Windows is introducing an option to allow users to save some settings in the Microsoft 365 cloud. This will be turned on by default.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 63037.

When this will happen

We will begin rolling this out to Microsoft 365 Monthly Channel, Targeted, in late May. (This is Insiders Slow Channel which will soon be called Microsoft Beta.)

They expect to roll this out to the Monthly Channel, Production, in late June.

When this feature rolls out, the following list of settings will roam across other computers running Outlook for Windows that are logged in to the same Office account:

  • Advanced
  • Calendar
  • Ease of Access
  • General
  • Groups
  • Mail
  • People
  • Search
  • Tasks

The following settings can’t be roamed:

  • Add-ins
  • Customize Ribbon
  • Language
  • Quick Access Toolbar
  • Trust Center

If you do not override this ability, users can change their preferences via the “Store my Outlook settings in the cloud” checkbox under File > Options > General.

Users can disable this feature by unchecking the box, “Store my Outlook settings in the cloud.”
