(Here's a question that I hope can be answered in the outlook-tips.net newsletter.)

I use Outlook 2010 and 2013 mostly, where I used the Other Actions button "Edit message" command to annotate messages I have received. (For example, to change a subject like "A question for you" to something more specific, to more easily find it again.)

In Outlook 2016, I can still use the "Edit message" command, but it no longer lets me change the Subject, only the message body. Is this ability gone, or have I overlooked something?

It's still there - you need to toggle the header section so it's big. The compact header doesn't support editing - click the caret on the right to expand it.

If you are just editing the header, you don't need to use edit mode - just open the message and type in the subject.

BTW, thanks for the idea - it's been a long time since i posted a tip about editing the header and it's time for an update.
