Add preference to turn off Dark Mode in Outlook
Need an Outlook specific preference to turn off Dark Mode
The dark mode is terrible. It is a nightmare to read using this theme.
Its not even a fully designed theme. Half of the program space is in dark black and some parts are in blinding white.
Had to revert my OS theme back to light just to have an ability to use Outlook once more.
PLS MICROSOFT FIX THIS! (it cannot be that difficult)
Any updates? I made the mistake of updating outlook. Now will probably just have to switch to web mode till this is resolved.
HOW DO I TURN DARK MODE OFF? PLEASE HELP.

VS Code from Microsoft is a great example of dark mode done right.
I hope that Office Mac also goes in that direction.
Until then, the option to go back to the bright mode would be great.
There are really 2 problems with dark mode as I see it--the first being that the reading pane isn't also darkened or dimmed, so you have a blinding white square in the middle of dark mode. The other is that the rest of the window is so high-contrast that reading the white on black text is painful. Apple's Mail is a much better example of a good implementation of dark mode, it's not so high-contrast. Short of those fixes, I suppose the fallback option is just to be able to turn it off specifically in Outlook, without having to turn off dark mode for the whole OS.

dark mode in a mail client only makes sense when you can invert the colors of the reading pane so it's not a canvas of blinding white light
see how OWA does this in React/Preview - much much much better...
Can't read. This sucks!
Please make the dark mode optional on Outlook!
Please fix this, no Bueno
Please give the option to remove dark mode / if not at least don't leave the open email as white!
Dark mode should be optional not related to overall system. I prefer the Dark mode of the MacOS Mojave, however I prefer Outlook on Bright Mode.
Make dark mode optional, I want to turn it on/off simply and quickly, otherwise its senseless
I love dark mode on the new MAC update, but it's terrible on outlook! Super hard to see anything. Too much contrast with the light, then dark. I would also love an option to remove dark mode.
Looking forward to the next try!
offf dark mode. i cant' use this version.
i want to use dark verson for mac but not for office and this is not possible.
i hate this!!!
no dark mode!
Yep can you make this more obvious in the Outlook option button, or a shortcut key to disable Dark mode. It was not obvious I had to go to General and settings as I assumed it was a MS outlook function. Thanks
I want to turn dark mode off because I can barely see!
any offer of a timeline? I'm using my browser bc I can't see a thing on my iMac w this Dark Mode!!! How is this not even an option though guys and gals? Really!
Don't want dark mode in outlook! Arg!

I prefer iOS dark mode but not Outlook dark mode. Outlook dark mode is not visually appealing.
