Global technology giant is set to roll out a new reply-all protection feature for Office 365 and Exchange Online and it is designed to prevent email storms.

Everyone has been through the agony when hundreds of people start replying to an email thread as someone forgets to BCC everyone. So coming to the rescue, the new block feature will benefit large organisations, and is initially being rolled out to detect 10 reply-all emails to over 5,000 recipients within 60 minutes, the Verge reported.

Microsoft's new reply-all email block feature will stay in place for four hours.

"Over time, as we gather usage telemetry and customer feedback, we expect to tweak, fine-tune, and enhance the Reply All Storm Protection feature to make it even more valuable to a broader range of Office 365 customers," Microsoft's Exchange transport team said.

Last year employees were in for a hard time as a GitHub notification triggered an email storm.
