Outlook 2016 Update for May 2017

A Rollup Update has been released for Outlook 2016. This is a non-security update which contains 20 documented improvements and fixes.

Most notable fixes are:

  • Reminders aren’t created after you import webcal calendars. To fix this issue, you can now set the AllowReminderCreation Registry value.
  • When a delegate opens a meeting request, some respond buttons, such as the Accept, Tentative, and Decline buttons, aren’t displayed.
  • Disables the message rule actions to start an application or run a macro (VBA script). To re-enable them, you can set the EnableUnsafeClientMailRules Registry value.
  • Adds the ability to view signed HTML email messages in the HTML format via the ShowSignedMessagesInNativeFormat Registry value, even when you have Outlook configured to force Plain Text.
  • When you use a POP or an IMAP account, some received email messages have a blank body.

Office 365 subscribers have also received a feature update; Attachment widths expand visually to fit the file name and permission information and there is also a new Dubai font.
