Install Outlook on Azure RDS Server

We have an Application Server in AZURE that we share with our users and those who connect via remote desktop, one of our APP suggests having an email program to send emails directly from the application, we have an OFFICE365 account, so my question: Is possible to install outlook on our RDS server in AZURE?

Hi @CarlosVera-9944,

I don't see a problem with installing Microsoft Outlook on your RDS server, just make sure your RDS server meets the minimum system requirements:

Hi @CarlosVera-9944,

Based on my research, if you use Remote Desktop Services (RDS) to provide shared computers to users in your organization, you can install Microsoft 365 Apps on those computers.

And the following is a list of prerequisites that you need to deploy Microsoft 365 Apps with RDS:

One of the following plans:
- An Office 365 (or Microsoft 365) plan that includes Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise, purchased through a Volume Licensing Program.
- A Microsoft 365 Business Premium plan that includes Microsoft 365 Apps for business.

The Office Deployment Tool, which is available on the Microsoft Download Center.

A separate user account for each user who logs on to the shared computer.

An eligible license assigned to each user account.

A version of Windows listed in the Microsoft 365 plans for business, education, and government system requirements.

Reliable connectivity between the shared computer and the internet.

If you're deploying Microsoft 365 Apps on a shared virtual machine, Microsoft supports using Hyper-V only.

For more information about the prerequisites and steps of installing Microsoft 365 Apps on RDS server, please refer to this article: Deploy Microsoft 365 Apps by using Remote Desktop Services.

Hope that would be helpful to you.
