Is anyone seeing what seems to be the return of this (summary: black boxes of various sizes randomly appearing in the Outlook UI)?
32-bit Outlook interface elements unexpectedly render in black, white, or blank

If it's not that, it certainly seems like it, and I am using 32-bit Outlook. The thing is, with the two changes the article mentions that were made to Outlook quite a while back, this was supposed to be a thing of the past.

I'd never actually seen it happen before a few weeks ago, but now it's hard to get through a day without seeing it, and when it starts happening it tends to happen a lot--until it stops. But then again, I could go a day or two without seeing it at all, it's very strange.

I've seen it with the last 3 or 4 Fast Insider Outlook builds on the last two Windows Insider builds, so it's not easy to know where the fault lies, exactly.
I have not seen that - but am using 64-bit. The insider build this week had some issues - they were fixed in yesterdays build but it brought back some search issues.

This is what I was seeing - when i switched tabs, the 'new messages on the other side' space didn't collapse
OK, if hear or figure out what's happening, I'll post back.

It's just a guess about the 32-bit/64-bit thing--maybe it's just very similar. I remain on 32-bit by inertia and because of Pocketknife Peek.
