Does anyone ever see this error in Outlook?

It shows the diagonal bar rectangle there above and to the right of the word "Yesterday", and it shows the three dark rectangles directly below Yesterday and above the email item.

I have not switched to the new version of Outlook yet because it reorders my folders and I don't see a way to restore them to the order I had them in without re-creating them in the order I want.

It pops up once every couple of months, and sometimes multiple times per day. Closing Outlook and restarting it fixes it. Sometimes switching to calendar and back fixes it, but not always.

RE: Does anyone ever see this error in

Ever since starting working from home I see a whole bunch of weird stuff going on with Outlook. Probably having to do with some issues with refreshing what's displayed, I guess

When creating new internal e-mail, I used to have some indicators if a user is available, gone, etc. by a small circles next to the name with different colors: green for 'in-office', red for gone, yellow for whatever. Those are gone now.
Settings for calendar keep changing - I like to see my calendar Mon-Fri, the whole workweek, but Outlook keeps resetting it to something different.

Finally I gave up fighting with Outlook and try to live with those issues.
