How can we improve your Desktop Outlook 2016 experience?

It should be great to put the dash icons not near the flag, sometimes we delete email instead of marking them.

    The 'Delete' Bin that appears next to the scroll bar in email headers is proving disastrous. Slight movement or deviation from the scroll bar when ‘clicking’, deletes the email. PLEASE REMOVE OR REPOSITION!!!

    Yes, These 2 icons are completely for North, South direction based usages which are kept side to each other. Which can make many users to delete the important content (Which is why they want to follow up).

    Move the "Flag" and "Trash" message buttons so they are not right next to each other

    Remove the 'delete' icon from the column where you flag the emails as you too easily delete the email instead of flagging it

    Put more distance between the Delete icon and the Move icon in the ribbon. The icons are so visually plain it's easy to click the wrong one. The red 'X" was more distinctive than a drab trash can and a drab folder. In general icons that will cause you to misplace a message should be apart from other productivity icons.
