Microsoft has released new free Outlook apps, including for Windows 10 and 11 and for mobile devices (Android and iOS/macOS). However, as these apps transmit unwanted data to Microsoft, their use for business purposes is prohibited for information security and data protection reasons.

License-based Outlook programs and the Outlook Web App (OWA) are not affected. These applications communicate directly with the RWTH Aachen University mail servers; no data is transferred to the Microsoft cloud. They can therefore remain in use.
