    Could you add this feature please: The option to have date/times within the body of the email recognized as such and thereby underlined with a link to the outlook Calendar. This would mimic what already exists in Samsung mail and also in iPhone. These email programs recognize dates and times and underline them with a link to the default calendar. This way you can, with just a click, access the calendar. When you click on them, the date and time are filled in for you and you simply add your details for that event. Done!.

    Very disappointed that color coding is not available for my use on my Outlook Calendar. I purchased Office (Outlook) to assist me with organization and color coding is used for this purpose throughout the world and in many applications. Also, there was no way for me to know that my having an IMAP format would prevent me from having this capability. I believe color coding should be available in Outlook regardless of the format.
