Quick Step icon colors don't match category colors
The new look changed the possible colors of the Quick Steps icons and category colors. There is now a discrepancy between the possible Quick Step icons and the category colors.
As someone who categorizes all incoming mail using the quick steps, it bugs me that the colors no longer match.
would be great if we could choose colors

I just noticed this as well. It is very distracting. Also, why do the category colors not show up in the list of emails? They only seem to show when I click on an email for preview. I was really hoping the categories in general would function more similarly to Gmail labels. Those are great.

Agreed! I categorize everything in my email and my calendar and the mismatch is maddening!
After the Office 1809 interface/ribbon update, the Unread/Read envelope in the "Read" Column in Outlook is no longer yellow. Instead it is white for both Unread and Read. Please allow the envelope to be toggled back to yellow. Also, I did not see this in any release notes.
restore colors from past version(s)
