Provide an option to allow font size to be changed or customized and same in Microsoft Outlook 2016
Provide an option to allow font size to be changed in Microsoft Outlook 2016 including the font and colors for the folder pane. Also make it possible to customize the fonts for Mail, People, Calendar on module basis. Also, Allow user to make a permanent (default setting) change to the font and size template for mail created in Outlook 2016 under Windows 10, not just on a mail-by-mail basis.
Also, set a default font that is always applied to my tasks. They change depending upon the email moved to tasks.
Also, Please give us a way to make the fonts and lines darker on the email form so that they can be easier to see and use. They are just to light and hard to read.

When will there be a solution to this problem. The loss of this functionality for those who need a larger font size is unacceptable!
Since upgrading to 1709 users font of choice is not being reflected in INBOX. Mail Folders on the left take up user's font choice, but when looking at a list of the contents in Inbox you have given us a very poor, thin, spidery font. I am told that this is currently the default look. Why does MS keep taking away useful functions with every upgrade; what's going on? I need to see my Inbox in the font & size of my choice. I have 2,000 emails there, Outlook is my main tool and I need to be able to find an old email quickly.
Grey text on grey background... every day I spend hours staring at that grey, brutalist, interface. I lament how grey eight hours of my day have become. Removing the ability to choose the color of the folder pane was a needless cruelty.

There is so much wasted vertical space within in the folder pane. I would like the ability to tighten up the layout by making folder names tighter vertically.

Restore Options to adjust Font Sizes and Colors in E-Mail (Rcvd, not just Sent), Calendar, Tasks, Notes, and Navigation Pane
The fonts in 2016 are terrible and cause eye strain. User's need the old winxp fonts.
In older versions of Outlook, you could change the font size of the list of folders in the Folder Pane. Why was that removed? The default font is WAY too small for people with poor eyesight!

We need to be able to customize the font size in TO, FROM, CC, SUBJECT LINE, etc. It is way too small - impossible to work with this all day without making my eyes hurt. ALSO: need to be able to change SUBJECT LINE
The folder pane font size is way to big and the line spacing is much too large. Please bring back the options to change the Font style and size as in Outlook 2010.

My vision is declining and regrettably I will have to abandon Outlook after more than 8 years of dedicated use. The issue is I can no longer see the folder names and other text that I ought to be able to modify. I hope for other's sake this is made a priority.

We previously were able to edit the fonts on the Outlook Navigation Pane, but that feature is no longer supported. This is so important for people with vision issues. Please bring it back.
I am unable to change the font size of my inbound mail. It is hard to read, it is so small. The change only works for my outbound mail.
Stop using weird default font color [31, 73, 125]. Remove this default from everywhere. Use some standard color, present in easily-accessible color palette.
I know I can change it ( File -> Options -> Mail -> Compose messages -> Stationery and Fonts -> set explicit color value to all fonts , see
https://www.emailquestions.com/threads/how-to-change-the-microsoft-outlook-font-color-from-blue-to-black.607/ ). But still it would be better to just remove this crazy color.

Allow the customization of outlook for views & color schemes. I know there is some customization but it is so limited.
I have users complaining about 2016 being more difficult to read than 2010 due to the "grey" text. Please include the option to change it.
Some precious space is wasted there.
You even had to add graphical elements to the blue bars to make them look better and lighter.
But that doesn't solve the problem.
Reduce the thickness of the blue bar, optimize content density of ribbon space underneath and give the additional space back to the "productive" space, i.e. inbox list, calendar....
I can't change a font, font color, or font size in reply e-mail? Really! Really?
