"This was an experimental feature that was not intended to be extensively tested and disabled." Said. However, Microsoft offers a support page with ads dedicated to ads in Mail. Users are wondering why the company will write a support page about a tool that should not be widely tested, thus causing insecurity to be lost.
We may never learn the real plans, but apparently we won't see the ads in our email boxes soon.
