Software update warning for the new Outlook version from 2024

The new Outlook version will replace the pre-installed e-mail program in Windows from 2024, and later also the classic Outlook from the Office package.

The new version synchronizes data with the Microsoft Cloud when using IMAP or POP (Exchange is not affected), whereby e-mail content and passwords are transmitted to Microsoft. The current Outlook client already offers the test of the new Outlook version with a button "The new Outlook" in some cases.

Do not use the option to switch to the new version in connection with e-mail accounts provided by the university! Continue to use your current Outlook version, which will still be usable (see Heise).
