How this will affect your organization

After Outlook assesses that a user might have forgotten to respond to or follow up on emails, the user might start seeing these messages brought to the top of their inboxes. If applicable, a maximum of one email will be brought to the top of the user’s inbox at a time.

Users can disable this in Settings/Layout/Message reminders.

What you need to do to prepare

This feature will roll out default on. If you don’t want this feature to roll out to your users, please follow the below instructions to disable it using PowerShell:

  • Parameter is set under Set-OrganizationConfig.
