outlook toolbar icons

Increase the size of the text for icons in the toolbars (very small in the newly updated 16.20 (181202) updated today).

When increasing the size of text in the app preferences provide an option for scaling the icon text as well.

The new icons/text in 181202 are too small on my 4K screen and my co-workers are complaining about them as well.

    Certain Toolbar icons should be changed depending on the "Meeting State" for example. Very difficult to see the depressed vs unrepressed icon especially in Dark Mode, which is assume.

    "Private" is shown as a lock. Perhaps is should be a "Open Lock" for non privatemessages, and "Closed Lock" for private messages.

    "Reminder Bell" should be a "Bell if the reminder is set" and a "Bell inside a circle cross" when an alarm hasn't been set.

    Being able to select command using colored icons is easier for the eye to distinguish. Now they look to similar and you need to focus on the written text underneath to make sure you are clicking on the correct one. Change it back or give the user the option with themes.

    Title says it all. Buttons in the toolbar take up "lots" of space for the icon.
