    In my humble performance as business owner, I would always perform to the benefit of my existing customers first. It would guarantee their loyalty as I pray to gain new customers in my store.
    True, but both you and Blackjack have a very narrow view of who MS' customers are.

    Owning a WP device makes you an MS customer. Agreed. However, using OneDrive, Office, Outlook, Exchange server, or any other one of MS' products and services also makes you an MS customer, and 95% of those people happen to use iOS or Android devices.

    If those MS customers are not looked after, there soon won't be an MS ecosystem that WP could tie into.
    I agree that Office coming so late to WP is an issue, but this? Seriously? Nothing has changed, except that an app called Accompli, which has existed for ages on iOS and Android, is now called Outlook.

    Are we really going to nerd rage over a branding issue? C'mon!

    Yes and the net result, which is the point of the OP, is that they on iOS and Android have the new Outlook, and we don't and are stuck with aged apps that they would never download..
    My concurrence is with you and the agentmike. Respectfully, I am frustrated to utilize the old calendar andmail apps, that my Andorid and iOS friends states typifies the WP ecosystem,while they get the newest nd greatest even from our own MS.

    That would make sense if they actually had the new outlook. They don't. They have the exact same Accompli app they've always had. What they actually have is a new name... absolutely appalling /s

    Then explain it to me.

    Except they don't have Outlook. They have Accompli with a new name. If Microsoft had never bought the company, the app would still be there. They have done nothing special in terms of Outlook.

    Still waiting while my iPhone pals are not. Thanks for loyalty MS....
    What exactly are you waiting for? Read my post #9 so you have a clearer understanding. The Outlook for iOS is no better than what we have out of the box. We have 3rd party solutions that are much better than this and since Outlook is not a native iOS app, I consider it a 3rd party solution as well. MetroMail lets you attach local and cloud files to your heart's content while Outlook for iOS only lets you send links from cloud servers. I'd say your iPhone pals are the ones waiting. Until iOS allows for local storage, they'll be waiting a lot longer.

    To use what? Outlook on iOS? Yes, I have used it which is why I know exactly how it works. WP may be my preference as my daily driver but I'm a fan of ALL OSes. I've used every single commercially available OS that's been released in the US since 2004, I don't need to snow anybody because I have firsthand experience. Besides a guess, what do you bring to the table?

    You do not agree that android and iPhone already can use this app and wp not.
    What has that to do with using it if it's becomes available for wp?
    To answer it. NOTHING.

    That's like using a 3rd party iTunes app on an iPhone. We have Outlook baked in the OS, not a re-badged 3rd party app.

    ​I'm going to guess you're saying he'll be the first to use Outlook on W10 when it comes out? Likely. But it will be Outlook, not Accompli.

    Thank you agent and Blackman for reasonable view of this problem. I am saddened by the complacency of these other posters (if that is correct term). MS simply must cater to its loyal customers as I do at my store. It is time for me to.end this discussion. Thank you agent for finding this information and regards

    You are correct, although perhaps not in the way you may think.

    I would just like to add that the Outlook mail app in Windows 10 on my Lumia 830 is still more functional than the rebranded Accompli. I'm able to attach files from the file explorer, OneDrive, my camera or photos, and even a few 3rd party apps.
