MC282784 – Updated March 29, 2022: Based on learnings from the early rings, Microsoft has made the decision to make additional changes before it proceeds with the rollout. The company has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.  

This enhancement to the Play My Emails feature of Outlook Mobile identifies Spotlight Emails (emails deemed important) and prioritizes them to be read first before other email from the inbox.
