Account Name in Navigation Pane does not preserve capitalization

When you change the account name in the Account Properties dialog, the account name shown in Navigation Pane does not display capitalization and shows lower case. The spelling is correct but the capitalisation used is not reflected in the Navigation Pane.

        Very annoying, I was raised differently where capitalization matters. Please hire some grown ups Microsoft.

        You know what we want so please give it back to us. I hate the new Outlook 2016 folder FONT and SPACING restrictions. It makes filing notes much more tedious and time confusing.

        Poor grammar from Microsoft. No wonder Millennials are getting illiterate!

        There were no grown-ups present when some cool coder decided that all lower-case was cool and Everybody but Everybody cool only uses lower case. Like my 12-year olds! (And all the wonderful techies I've ever worked with :)!).
        Bring back mixed case ASAP please MSFT (or is that msft?!)
        AND - as if to prove my point - whilst typing this, the IE screen spell-check accepted MSFT (of course, it is not only their stock ticker, but also a world-recognised acronym and an internally accepted one at that) but it red-underlined the lower case msft ! (Twice - it just did it again! :) ).

        Which committee though this was a good idea? The English (note the capitalisation - it's a proper noun!!) language has rules that some of us like to follow and teach our kids to follow. This is lazy, irritating, incorrect and serves what purpose exactly?

        Stop spreading the bad habit from mobile communication. If my name is John Doe and when I type it John Doe, then it means that I want to read it John Doe and not john doe.

        I must agree, the lower case limitation should be removed. Where a user has utilised capital letters, it should reflect as such. Please fix.

        Return control over capitalization, spacing and formatting for the Nav Pane .pst files. This is a really jarring UX inconsistency

        Please, I beg of you, to change the Navigation Pane in Outlook 2016 to permit the usage of both capital and small case. Thank you.

        Perhaps the millennials doing the programming were never taught proper capitalization rules in their English classes. I can't believe the alternative, that the field was reduced from 8 bits to 7 bits, as in the old days of ASCII decades ago. I have PST folders with the names of REAL People and REAL businesses. I'm not e.e.cummings (look him up); proper names should be used and displayed properly.
