Mail and Calendar update for Windows 10 Insiders adds multi-window emails and more

If you are an Insider and currently rocking a recent Redstone build (also known as the Anniversary Update for Windows 10), today you will get an update that adds new features to Mail and Calendar.

The 0.5MB update, adds the following, as noted by Microsoft:

  • Open email messages in a new window
  • View .eml attachments and save messages in .eml format
  • Print Day, Multi-day, and Work Week views in Calendar

After updating, you will find a new icon situated on the right of an opened email message, which allows you to 'pop it out' into a new window. Double clicking on the email you want from the messages list column, also pops it out in a new window.

In our example image, we only have one email in a new window, but you can open multiple emails in this way. Microsoft also notes in the changelog that although this feature isn't arriving as an update for non Insider builds yet, it will do in a few weeks.

For those that use OneNote, an update is also available for that with the following changes:

  • Right-click a selection of handwritten notes or drawings to group them together. After that, it's easy to move them around as one piece.
  • Share your notebook with anyone right from OneNote, and they can view or edit it on any device.
  • We listened. If you only use OneNote at the office or in class, you can now sign in with just a work or school account.
  • Record a quick audio reminder or sound clip and keep it in your notes.

The most recent build of Windows 10 for Insiders is build 14316 released two weeks ago, but fret not - it looks like we should see a newer build arrive sometime this week.
