new Outlook 16.47 M1 macMini Applescript fails with "new look"

Hi,

on a new M1 mac with macOS 11.2.1 or 11.3 beta
Outlook 16.47

Applescripts fails if Outlook has the "new Outlook" flag checked

A simple AppleScript fails

Applescript:

tell application "Microsoft Outlook"
   try
       name of every imap account
   end try
end tell

If I switch back to the "old Look" and uncheck the new design it works again.

-----------
Another problem is the Terminal "Osascript myscript.scpt" execution on a new M1 mac Mini.
Outlook is in classic mode and checkbox "new Outlook" is switched off

From a 4th-Dimension app (signed and notarized) I call several Applescripts to get the e-mails from outlook. To execute the scripts, I call a terminal command "Osascript myscript.scpt"
On the M1 mac the line "set theBody to plain text content of currentMessage" fails on 5-10% of the emails and delays the execution to several minutes.

But If I open the script with the AppleScript Editor, then it works without errors. The Intel macs from 10.14.x - 11.3 has no problems with the mentioned line from the script.

Applescript:

   tell application "Microsoft Outlook"
       set messageIDSpecifier to 440
       set currentMessage to message id messageIDSpecifier
       set theBody to plain text content of currentMessage
       return "<mybody>" & theBody & "</mybody>"
   end tell

Maybe MS reads this forum too.

Thanks Armin

it also not see exchange accounts so you can't set the account with script to a exchange account with the new Outlook, I report it to the Excel/Outlook Mac team so I hope the pick it up
