Designer also detects formatting inconsistencies. Apply formatting fixes by clicking on a button at the top of the pane or allow formatting fixes to be applied automatically when selecting a theme.

Designer will eventually make additional suggestions as well.

MC252197(Updated) Location Based Access ControlMany of our largest customers, typically in the banking and financial industries, are governed by strict standards. Their employees have access to very sensitive data and can only access that data within the boundaries of a single country. Admins currently restrict access to sensitive data based on IP address. However, IP address is less accurate and less reliable than GPS data. Thus, admins need the ability to restrict access based off of GPS data.
Now, admins will have the ability to create Conditional Access policies to allow/deny access using a new type of Named Location based off GPS data. When the policy is enabled, end users will need to share their GPS location from the mobile device on which Microsoft Authenticator is installed. The user's mobile device is a good indication of the user's actual location at the time.

MC239262(Updated) Enforcing mailbox receiving limitsUpdated March 04, 2021; We have updated the content below for clarity. Thank you for your feedback.
We are updating the way we enforce our receiving limits in Exchange. Starting in April 2021, we will be more strictly enforcing limits across all mailboxes to protect the health of our systems and ensure optimal mail flow performance for all customers.
Mailboxes that receive high message volume in a short time can cause mail flow delays, both for individual recipients and across your organization.
With these changes, emails will be throttled for recipients that exceed our published and established threshold of 3600 messages per hour. While this is not a new limit, it has been a soft limit before ? we?ve ensured up to 3600 but in some cases supported higher volume. We are now making this a hard limit.

Today EOP depends on the junk email rule to move spam/phish messages to a user's Junk folder based on the spam confidence level set by EOP. Going forward EOP will use it's own mailflow delivery agent to move malicious emails to the Junk folder depending on the policy set by security admins in Antispam policy. EOP will continue to honor the user safe sender/block sender preferences set in outlook just as the junk email rule does today.
