Today a short blog post about the removal of the new Outlook For Windows app, which comes with the new Windows 11 23H2 update.

Outlook For Windows is the replacement for the Windows Mail app. But that's great fun if you're using Windows 11 as a personal device. But you don't want that in an Enterprise environment, so I created a remediation script that we can deploy to our Intune managed systems using Microsoft Intune.

The remediation consists, as you probably know, of two PowerShell scripts, namely the detection and the remediation script.

You can find the scripts on my GitHub. Follow the steps below to implement it.

  3. Click on + Create script package
  4. On the Basics tab, fill in a Name
  5. Click on Next
  6. On the Settings tab, click on the blue folder button and upload the Detect-OutlookNew.ps1 script
  7. On the same blade, click on the blue folder button and upload the Remove-OutlookNew.ps1 script
  8. Toggle the switch to Yes at Run this script using the logged-on credentials
  9. Toggle the switch to Yes at Run script in 64-bit PowerShell
  10. Click on Next
  11. Click on Next
  12. Choose your desired assignment, like all devices or an Entra ID group
  13. Choose your desired schedule to run this remediation script
  14. Click on Next
  15. Click on Create

That's it. Now sit back and relax. Grab a ☕ or a 🍺.
