Mail and Calendar updated with minor settings tweak for Insiders

A fairly minor update is rolling out to the Mail and Calendar app for Windows 10 Insiders. There's nothing groundbreaking here, but the main Settings menu has received a slight update, as initially spotted by German blog Windows United.

The bulk of the options present in the Settings menu remain the same, ranging from options related to managing your accounts to personalization and signature settings. What's new is that the Windows 10 apps now include a link to download Outlook for iOS and Android. You'll find the new option sandwiched between "Help" and "What's New."

It's a small change, to be sure, but it gives Microsoft another spot to advertise Outlook's availability on other platforms. The updated Settings pane should be available with Mail and Calendar version 17.9029.20485.0, which is currently available on the Release Preview Ring, according to Windows United.

  • Stupid.
  • Settings 'pain'? 😉
  • stupid update could have added more
  • I don't understand why they don't rename Mail & Calendar as Outlook. I understand that real Outlook is part of Office and isn't free, but I feel like they should simplify it and just call it Outlook to build the brand.
  • Yes, this should be simply called Outlook and the other one should be called as the outlook for business.  Same like Skype and Skype for Business
  • Everyone understands what a calendar and what mail is but not everybody knows outlook.
  • Or maybe we could call it Outlook Express.  
  • They updated the Windows Mobile apps as well. I assume they have the same changes? I can't check yet. But no mention of that here?
  • Minor... Thats the problem with these Microsoft apps. These apps barely get anything useful. Microsoft doesnt care anymore?
  • Anymore???
  • Still no HTML signature which is THE top requested feature for 3 years now?
  • Yea, really stupid too. Holding back technology, so we buy office 😅
