- Microsoft heard you: Outlook's Left Nav Bar
- Make the Folder list Narrower
- TLS 1.0/1.1 for POP3 and IMAP4: Going away
- Missing Signature when using File > Send
- Office 365 Revoked Security Certificate
Good news for Office users who hate the navigation bar on the left. Microsoft listened and is adding a "snooze option" to revert it back to the bottom. This option will be in Version 2211 which should release in a couple of weeks, around November 28, 2022.
Note that this is a temporary fix – that's why it is called "snooze". We don't know yet how long this snooze option will be available, so if you haven't left feedback at yet, do so

The Snooze option will be in File > Options > Advanced; for quick access to the appropriate location in Options, click on the last button in the vertical navigation bar then Options on the lower left. Uncheck Show Apps in Outlook, then restart Outlook to return to the classic navigation bar.

Outlook for Windows: New location for the Mail, Calendar, People, and other modules
One of the reasons I gave Microsoft for disliking the vertical navigation bar was the fact that it wasted approx. 40 pixels that I would rather have in the reading pane.
So they changed the minimum width of the folder list, making it 40 pixels smaller. You can now go as low as 160 pixels wide - if you want it smaller, you'll need to collapse it.
They have not yet addressed the minimum width of the message list, which is 300 pixels, 130 pixels of which as used for the date and Quick Actions buttons. Because the Quick Actions area needs so much space, I'm not sure we'll get the ability to shrink the message list.
This change is available now, in build 2210.
Beginning December 1, Microsoft will begin turning off the Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 protocols for POP3 and IMAP4 and enforce the use of TLS 1.2.
Users who are still using older email clients should receive an message notifying them of this change.
The recommended option is to upgrade to an app that supports TLS1.2. All modern email clients should support this, including Thunderbird and eM client (both are free). If upgrading your client is not an option, you will need use new server names: pop-legacy.office365.com for POP3 and imap-legacy.office365.com for IMAP4. However, if at all possible, upgrade your email client, it will be more secure.
Windows 7 needs a registry key set to support TLS1.2 and all newer Windows versions have native support for TLS1.2.

A long standing issue with using the File > Share > Email or File > Send menus in the Office applications to send your document or workbook by email is that the signature is not added to the message, you need to add it manually.
This is because the Send email command opens the Outlook message format at a point after a signature would be added.
One huge improvement in the process: in the newer version of Office, you can leave the message open and still use Outlook. In older versions, you need to send or save and close the message before you can access Outlook.
Some users are receiving a message that a certificate that is used to secure their connection to Office 365 servers has been revoked. It comes and goes and does not actually affect your ability to connect to the Office 365 servers. It's just a nuisance because you need to click the Ok button in the prompt to bypass the message. Microsoft is investigating.
