Outlook for Mac

Give us the option for Old Icons

The new icons are horrible. Too flat and childish looking. Would rather have the old icons with their 3-D effect which stood out from the background. Give us the option to switch back to the older better looking icons.

    the new icons in 16.20 are truly a disappointment. I understand they are optimized for dark mode, but for those of us not on Mojave, they really stand in start contrast to the colorful, and honestly, more inviting icons of previous releases. I have always been surprised at how different the icons were between Mac and Windows version of Outlook, with Windows tending toward the harsher angles, whereas the Mac version were always a bit more round and gentle. The ideal would be a toggle where we could choose between say a "Classic" and "Default" icon set. Until then, I'm looking for a way to downgrade :/

    go back to the older icons, it is proven that color in an icon helps distinguish an object/icon better than just a shape alone. The new monochromatic icons work for a mobile device but honestly not that well there either. It looks terrible and is difficult to use.
