How to install and run the New Outlook and Classic Outlook side by side

Now that the New Outlook is available in the Office Insiders Beta Channel, I really want to try it out but don’t want to use it as my daily driver just yet.

Is there any way that I can install and run the New Outlook and the current Outlook at the same time?

Where did it go? Disable Hardware Graphics Acceleration

Where did it go? Disable Hardware Graphics Acceleration

I’m getting some weird graphics anomalies with my screen when using Outlook.

For instance, the screen suddenly turns completely black or white, and when I move over those spaces with my mouse, the Outlook UI starts to appear again but only in those places.

At other times, text in the Ribbon and Folder Pane overlap or folders appear empty even when they are not.

Restarting Outlook fixes it temporarily but I’d like to fix it permanently.

I was recommended to “disable hardware graphics acceleration” but I can’t find that option anywhere.

How do I solve this issue?

View message in web browser only shows HTML code in Microsoft Edge

View message in web browser only shows HTML code in Microsoft Edge

Choosing to view a message in a web browser used to open Internet Explorer and display it as a mht-file with all formatting and pictures.

Now when I choose this option, it opens Microsoft Edge but only shows the HTML code of the message and doesn’t actually render the message itself.

With Microsoft (and me) moving away from Internet Explorer, and removing it from Windows 11, how can I properly open the emails in Microsoft Edge or another web browser?

Or is Microsoft going to improve the rendering capabilities in Outlook for HTML emails?

Decrypt S/MIME encrypted emails and save them unencrypted

Decrypt S/MIME encrypted emails and save them unencrypted

As we save the original message, they remain encrypted and can only be opened by the original recipient that has the S/MIME certificate.

Trying to open these messages from the application gives the error;

Your Digital ID name cannot be found by the underlying security system.

Is there a way to remove the S/MIME encryption from a message and save it unencrypted?
