New message in bold and blue
Since the update from last monday of Outlook (now 15.32) for Mac the incoming mail is now in font medium and black in stead of bold and blue. Can you please change it back to bold and blue? Also there is a line between the mails that doesn't make it easier to watch.
Unread emails now show the subject in bold blue color, in addition to a blue dot.
I know it says done, but please allow us to change the color - blue looks white to me. I have to open a Windows VM to read my email where I can change the font color, I can't believe that there is that big of a difference between one system running intel hardware and another system running intel hardware, hmmmm, really guys, aren't you professionals, don't you take pride in your work????
in the Bloomberg biography, they described that when they sold the terminals to the clients, they had it specifically stipulated in the contracts, that Bloomberg must not make any design change of the layout because it would either lower the effectivity (the better case) of the traders who were used to certain information being shown at certain position of the screens, or it might even lead straight to the mistakes with dire consequences. The people in charge of Outlook design should read this part of that book not once, but TEN times, and think really hard about that before considering any changes to time-proven layout of the app. Most of us use Outlook for work, not for fun, and we have no time to spend on working out how the things which used to work one way are working now. If I want to play hide-n-seek, I will go geocaching on the weekend, not open my Outlook.
Unbelievable they think a little blue dot is more usable than the bold/blue. Cant wait till the company switches to gmail. I bet Outlook for Windows still has this option
The comments below said it all!! Please return the bold and blue or allow the user to have this option ASAP. The new formatting is an eye strain, therefore a health hazard, and causing unproductivity. The blue bullets are useless and actually distracting/cause even more eye strain. The uni-font makes it super difficult to distinguish not only each email but sender, etc. so speed reading/ eyeballing is impossible and again eye strain I usually am arms length from my screen, but now find myself leaning into it in order distinguish each email. Again, eye and physical strain! I recieve 400+ emails a day which I can usually peruse and process within 2 hours. Now it's taking the entire day and night, have headaches after it and now have an eye doctor appointment from the strain. Please, send out correction ASAP!

The blue dot for new messages does not stand out enough; I cannot tell easily which messages are new and which are unread. Please bring back the bold and blue format!
Please bring back the bold and blue format for unread email and the yellow background for flagged mails. It helps a lot to prioritise the inbox.

Happened the same with me. After the last update of the Office 360, on my Mac OS Sierra to 10.12.4, this problem of unread email is no longer BOLD and BLUE came up.
Now unread emails are just identifies by a small blue dot on the left... It is now very frustrating when you are looking for unread email.
What had happened with this last update it is terrible... Please microsoft help to return the old helpful feature...
