To celebrate the International Pirate Day, Microsoft added a new pirate mode to Outlook.com. Those using the new Outlook.com beta can get access to the new pirate mode which enables “pirate speak” throughout the app. Spam, for example, has been translated to “scum” and Folders are now called “Treasure Troves.”

The new pirate mode in Outlook.com is pretty cool, but it’ll probably be gone by tomorrow — so make sure to give it a go as soon as you can. To disable the pirate mode, all you have to do is click on the “Go back to English, ya landlubber” button. Yes.

Thanks for the tip, Jan!
