Different Color Sets for Dark Mode
In Calendar, normal mode, “busy” appointments have a blue line, which has a good contrast with the white background. “Free” appointment have a white line, which “blends” with the background. This gives good visual experience on what is really important or what’s in the calendar just for information.
But when switching to Dark mode, the colours are the same, so a Free event really pops out of the Calendar, as if it was something very important, and a blue Busy event remains in the background.
Same feedback for the events main background colour: grey in Normal mode, Blue in dark mode. I had a lot of Blue Categories, now I had to change them another colour as they would blend into the Dark mode.
But when I get to OWA, which has no Dark mode, I get all the new colours…
It would be great to have a different set of colours (for both Categories and Busy/Free/OOO) to display in the two modes.

it is difficult to distinguish an old email from a new one in dark mode. the only different element is the hour, colored blue.

Make Dark mode recognize correctly when an email background is light and use the appropriate font color. It mistakes some backgrounds as dark when they are light and makes the email white on white. Every time one of these emails is read the background must be changed. It's also not a persistent change so it has to be changed every time the same email is read.

In dark mode, it is hard to differentiate windows because all the title bars are dark black. Using an alternate dark color for the title bar would be helpful. E.g. a dark brown, blue or green.
The emails coming through in Dark Mode have any light background overridden by dark mode. I work in marketing and create email campaigns for companies and so far Outlook for Mac ran in Dark Mode is the only email platform that does this. It distorts the emails and makes them look visually unappealing. It would be nice to have some sort of HTML that we can put in on the email campaign level that overrides Dark Mode so that the email displays how it was intended to be seen. See link for examples of what it should look like vs what it looks like in dark mode. You can see especially in the social media area at the bottom, how much the color changes. It should be tan but comes out a weird dark yellow. and the background in between photos comes out dark and it should all be white.

Dark mode reading pane feature will not display fonts correctly as expected. Even when a template with white background is being viewed in dark mode reading pane will have lighter fonts, making it difficult to read.
