Outlook 2016 / 2019 / 365 Update for May 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 8 security updates for Access (1), Excel (5), Word (1) and Office (1).

In addition, it contains 1 documented non-security fix for Outlook Current Version 2104, 1 new feature and 10 fixes for Monthly Enterprise Version 2103, 1 fix for Monthly Enterprise Version 2102, 1 fix for Semi-Annual (Preview) Version 2102 and 1 fix for Semi-Annual Version 2008. Most notable fixes are;

  • Version 2104
    We fixed an issue that caused some users of the calendar sharing improvements feature to experience issues with interacting with their calendar in the navigation pane.
  • Version 2103
    We fixed an issue that caused delegates to appear as the organizer of meetings created on newly added calendars. Meetings in this state did not appear on the principal’s calendar.
  • Version 2103
    We fixed an issue that caused users to see more signatures than expected. 
  • Version 2102
    This enables end users to configure Outlook to add an online meeting to every meeting they create.
  • Version 2008
    We fixed an issue that caused mails to be sent as digitally signed after the user unchecked that option.

The new feature in Monthly Enterprise Version 2103 is;

  • Break the language barrier with a built-in translator
    Add-ins for translation aren’t required anymore! You can now use the Intelligent Translator in Outlook. When you receive a message in another language, a prompt will appear on top of the message asking if you’d like Outlook to translate it to your default language. You can also right-click to translate specific words, phrases, or the whole message.
