Hey all, hope you are getting excited for Ignite! We have a great slate of sessions scheduled this year for Outlook, spanning each of our different client and key scenarios like groups and calendaring. To make it easier to find us in Orlando, I've pulled together a list of the core sessions you should look at attending to hear about all things Outlook. And of course, you can always swing by the Outlook & Groups booths to meet the team.

Want a side meeting with the team? Please email us at ignitemeetingrequest@service.microsoft.com and share your tenant name and asks.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
