    This used to be possible via MFCMAPI but as of Build 1806, the custom display name is being overwritten with the primary SMTP address of the Exchange mailbox.

    Being able to customize the display name of the Mailbox/Account should be an official feature as it will help distinguishing between the accounts more easily and provide for a cleaner interface.

    Right now, lots of email addresses are truncated (showing 3 dots) and when you have multiple accounts, a long(er) name and only the domain part of your email address is different, you have no way to quickly and easily distinguish between the 2 or more accounts.

    Note that you can also use CTRL+ENTER to mark a message as read when it is selected in the Message List.

    They are optional but they are tied to the "Touch/Mouse mode" feature. The buttons are shown on the side in Touch mode as hover actions and touch don't mix well in this aspect.

    Already possible but not that obvious;

    Press the little expand arrow in the bottom right corner of the "Go To" group which also contains the "Today" and "Next 7 Days" button.

    This dialog van also be opened via CTRL+G.

    The "Go so Specific Date" command can also be added to the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) or Ribbon.

    Signature options have always been available via the Options dialog already and they still are;
    File-> Options-> Mail-> Signatures...

    There has never been a need to compose a new message first but it is being offered as an alternative method.
