Why can't I send text messages from my Outlook through Outlook Mobile Service anymore?

Exchange Online no longer supports this service for carriers outside the USA, Canada and Romania.

Can I stop the Outlook mobile app from auto-inviting everyone in an email thread to a personal calendar event that I create using the link in an email?

Unfortunately not. When you tap on a date in an email to create an event in your calendar, Outlook automatically adds all the recipients of the email as required attendees of your new event, and will send them an invitation. This can get embarassing if the email was sent to a large distribution list! The only workaround is to remember to delete the unwanted attendees before you save the new event to your calendar.
