What you need to know

  • Microsoft just announced several changes that will remove features or affect the functionality of Outlook and OneDrive.
  • Microsoft 365 subscribers will no longer be able to have personalized email addresses attached to their Outlook.com inbox.
  • Outlook attachments will soon count against your OneDrive storage data limit, which could force people to delete larger emails.
  • Microsoft will add at least 50 GB of extra storage to Outlook for one year to help people transition.

Microsoft recently announced significant changes to Outlook and OneDrive that will reduce functionality of both services in certain areas. Starting on November 30, 2023, Microsoft 365 subscribers will no longer be able to associate a new personalized email address with an Outlook.com mailbox. On February 2, 2023, Outlook.com attachments will start counting against a person’s OneDrive data cap. Microsoft sent out details about the changes this morning.

Personalized email addresses (opens in new tab) are custom addresses with a format like yourname@example.com. Any emails sent to the personalized email address appear in the same inbox as the normal address associated with the account. The main benefit is that a person can make the suffix of the email address whatever they’d like, such as a community group or another name.
