Despite the growth of messaging platforms, email just won’t go away. But Microsoft is working on a new app, called “Flow,” designed to make it easier to communicate over the decades-old email protocol.
well Microsoft, if it really confidential, don't put it on publicly accessible Internet, LOL. pic.twitter.com/BX0Bw0SpKw

This is the how the leaked download page describes the app.
Use Flow with anyone, it’s email: Reach anyone with an email address and all conversations for you and others are also in Outlook. Together, you can use Flow and Outlook interchangeably to participate in the same conversations.
Fast, fluid, natural conversations: No subject lines, salutations, or signatures. Flow is designed for fast, light-weight conversations in real time.
Focus on what’s important: Only conversations started in Flow and their replies show up in Flow, not your whole inbox. Focus on your most important person-to-person conversations without the noise.
Microsoft’s current email app lineup includes the former Acompli apps, rebranded under the Outlook name for iOS and Android, created after the company bought the email app maker last year. We’ve contacted the company to see if it’s commenting on its release plans for the Flow app.
