We’re thrilled to announce that Microsoft’s latest desktop version of its popular email client—Outlook 2019—is now available for testing in Litmus Email Previews. The new Outlook comes with better fallbacks when using web fonts, SVG support, and more.
Microsoft Outlook is comprised of several versions of the email client.
