Get rid of yellow background highlight on flagged messages or allow it to be disabled
The new Outlook update puts a yellow background highlight on flagged messages. It is awful to look at an inbox full of yellow highlights. Please remove this highlighting or allow it to be disabled.
I love that highlighting!
But true - the best user interfaces for power tools like outlook are highly customizable ones

It's red in dark mode. No way to change.
The fix doesn't work. When the yellow highlighting is unchecked, it still appears, in both desktop and 365. Please update or provide an additional fix.

This is neither new nor irrelevant MICROSOFT HEAR YOUR USERS

the yellow highlighting is only appearing on some of my spam mail in my junk mail box--didn't use to be there and just suddenly appeared and I can't think of any reason we need it. I don't use the colored flag system for any of my email
At the very least let us turn it off! Not only can I no longer stand to look at my inbox, but I also can no longer tell if I've select a message or not. How do things like this get past QA?
I agree. It's distracting to my workflow.
