Flagged emails should not be defaulted to yellow highlight as well as the red flag. This should be an optional function turned on/off or provide an option to make it an optional feature.503 votes
Thank you for your feedback.
While the majority of customers have given us positive feedback on highlighting of flagged items to help them stand out better in the message list, we also realize that this visual treatment may not work as well for users who make heavier use of specific types of flags to schedule their follow ups.
We are working on adding an option to allow users to disable highlighting for flagged items, and expect it to become available to monthly channel users in coming months.
It would be great if Outlook sync'd your email signature across multiple devices so that you only have to set or update it once.8,176 votes

Using Outlook 2016 for Windows, I cannot add or update events to my Outlook.com family calendar.213 votes
The Outlook team is working on this update. We will add support for adding and updating events on family calendars as part of an overall improvement to shared calendars in Outlook.
We will post a subsequent status update when the shared calendar improvements are available for you to use in Outlook. Our current ETA is to begin releasing to subscription customers who are using Outlook 2016 this summer (July 2018).
As shown in other applications such as Spotify or dark theme in Netbeans, Office applications should have Reading / Edit dark panels because they appearing in white, so the contrast is too high and some annoying to the user's view. It should be dark gray or black with light gray font. Thanks!

Thank you for submitting feedback! We value your feedback and are actively working on this item.
I don't like the way 'today' is highlighted in the calendar in Outlook Outlook 2016: a thin line at the top of the day, in the same color as the calendar. It's hard to see and blends in with appointments that are not categorized.
Add an option to overlay color on the today's column of today's events.
Or when clicking on the calendar, it would be nice if TODAY was at the top of month view, not the bottom. I want to see the next coming days of schedules, not the past without having to scroll every time.573 votes

The possibility to correct the matching of IMAP folders, like in Outlook 2007 should be added.
That means it should be possible to change the settings for the folders were the Sent and Deleted items should be stored.
This is a serious problem in the German Outlook version (17 votes in microsoft comunnity): Due to wrong matching the Synchronization does not work correct. E.g. Outlook stores the sent email in a folder named "Gesendete Elemente" (sent items) and the email provider expects "sent".388 votes
