Outlook 2016 / 2019 / 365 Update for February 2021

A new rollup update has been made available for all Click-to-Run installations of Outlook 2016, Outlook 2019 and Outlook as part of a Microsoft 365 subscription.

It contains 3 security updates for Excel.

In addition, it contains 3 documented non-security fixes for Outlook Current Version 2101, 5 features and 4 fixes for Monthly Enterprise Version 2012, and 1 fix for Semi-Annual Version 2008. Most notable fixes are;

  • Version 2101
    We fixed an issue that caused Cloud Settings users to experience a hang when updating settings.
  • Version 2011
    We fixed an issue that caused some users to see no signatures in the signatures drop down despite having one or more signatures configured.
  • Version 2012
    We fixed an issue that caused an edited signature to fail to save after prompting the user to do so.
  • Version 2012
    We fixed an issue that caused some customers to encounter a hang while loading their calendars.
  • Version 2008
    Addressed an issue which caused Outlook to stop working sporadically when adding or saving attachments.

The new features in Monthly Enterprise Version 2011 are;

  • SVG Clipboard Support
    You can now paste SVG content from Office into 3rd party apps.
  • Build in time between back-to-back meetings
    Give attendees time to catch their breath or travel between locations by setting meetings to start 5-10 min late by default.
    File-> Options-> Calendar-> Shorten appointments and meetings
  • Every meeting online
    Update your calendar settings to make every meeting you create a Teams Meeting by default so you no longer need to remember to click the Teams Meeting option.
    File-> Options-> Calendar-> Add online meeting to all meetings
    Note: This feature requires an update to Teams which is not yet publicly available.
  • Sensitivity label audit logging
    When users apply, change, or remove sensitivity labels on their documents and emails, that information is now made available to administrators in the Microsoft 365 audit logs. 
  • Government customers: Apply sensitivity labels to your documents and emails
    Sensitivity labeling features are now available for customers in the GCC and GCC-H environments.
