Microsoft is known to be working towards unifying Outlook across platforms as part of its "One Outlook" strategy, something that the company has been discussing for the past couple of years. The email client is moving to a web-based platform powered by what the firm calls Outlook on the web Powered Experiences (OPX). The initiative is codenamed "Project Monarch" and although we heard earlier this year that it is delayed, new screenshots of the client have leaked.
The screenshots show an Outlook client that is almost identical to the web experience - which makes sense - with a couple of minor differences so far. Window controls have been embedded into the app's title bar so that it feels more native to Windows, and the ribbon menu can also be configured so that it looks more like the "traditional" Outlook experience.
Over on Twitter, @FireCubeStudios has leaked some images too that you can see below:

Microsoft hasn't officially announced yet as to when the new Outlook experience will be generally available. For now, the leaked app doesn't work with personal accounts but we expect that to be fixed by the time it rolls out publicly. We might get an update on this front at Build 2022 later this month as the client does seem to be in a good place, based on the latest leaked screenshots.
