Improvements and fixes

This update fixes the following issues:

  • Fixes an issue that blocks users from providing justification text when they override a policy.

  • Fixes an issue that causes users to experience occasional crashes while they use Outlook.

  • Fixes an issue that causes the headers of Chinese email messages to be unreadable when you reply to or forward messages.

This update also contains the following improvement:

Adds a registry key that enables customers to disable file time inclusion for attachments in IDataObject operations (for example, by dragging and dropping an attachment from the clipboard into an email message).

  • Path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER \SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Attachments

  • Value name: IncludeFileTimesInDataObject

  • Value type: REG_DWORD

  • Value data:

    • 1 (default): File times are included.
