Remove Internet Explorer requirement for Insights - MyAnalytics add-in in Outlook
Currently, if you've removed Internet Explorer from a Windows 10 PC and try to open the Insights Outlook add-in, you get the following message. "ADD-IN ERROR Sorry, we couldn't load the add-in because Internet Explorer is disabled. Click "See Details" for more information." Clicking See Details results in a page cannot be found.
Internet Explorer is dead and should not be a requirement for anything from Microsoft.

Well, I guess they have a year to figure it out.

Just to re-iterate the "See Details" button from the error message links to https://support.office.com/en-GB/article/HA102789344?AssetID=HA102789344&ver=16&app=outlook.exe&CorrelationId=836e6a38-6a1c-455c-ae76-00c4a00b7dfb
Which is a dead-link: This at least could be fixed with a page with some info - Not slick.

How can Microsoft even think of using IE11 as a backbone/requirement for a modern Outlook add-in from the Microsoft 365 suite? Who's pulling the strings here, who's in charge of taking these smart decisions? How can new features be adopted if they rely on old junk to work? Our entire organization have been shoved this so called "new feature" down our throat only to create confusion to our users by receiving emails from MyAnalytics and not even being able to start the add-in.

Quite a terrible user experience I have to say. Microsoft sends a 'Welcome to MyAnalytics' email, and when you click 'Try it out' you get an error.
Every solution I have found on the web and from Microsoft says to install IE 11 from the 'Windows Features' program, but it has been removed!
Microsoft, do you have a solution?

Come on Microsoft. This is not really how to get rid of IE. We have disabled IE for a while now. Please make "My Analytics" & "insights add-in" work with a modern browser such as EDGE Chromium.

It appears several web-based plugins have this IE requirement. Salesforce also doesn't work on a machine with IE disabled.
On some machine it also create two iexplore process when either replying or forwarding email for some users. When close the email compose screen those processes stay in the memory. Here is the Case #:19015509 with support. Please fix

I am having this issue. I've never disabled IE, it just doesn't seem to exist on my system, only Edge. This makes MyAnalytics useless.

Hi, is there any solution for this? I have removed Internet Explorer as we are looking to upgrade our estate to Edge Chromium, but now none of my add-ins in Outlook work.
