New Outlook Client who dis?

So today, like most days I was clicking through on my smart phone, opened the outlook mail client, and i like. “wait?! hold up, what app is this?!”. If you haven’t downloaded the new update, you’re noticed that they liked it so they put a header on it.

I also know I could do a foreach of $a and have it return the site collection then I could do some magic against the objects. Step...
