How does this affect me?

When your end users are composing an email message in Outlook for the web, they will see suggestions to help them communicate better, such as recommendations for spelling, grammar, and refinements to communicate more concisely. This new feature in Outlook is powered by Microsoft Editor. Users can turn off the feature if they like when they composing an email message.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
