    I'm still looking for a way to quickly go back to 'today' in the calendar preview while in the mail view in Outlook 2016. In the Mail view, none of the above methods work to quickly go to 'today' on calendar preview pane. if you have the to-do bar showing, and you click on 'today' it's pane, all it does is toggle the to-do items to 'Later'. Its does NOT change the date in calendar preview pane. Any ideas?

    To go to today with a keyboard only solution, you can hit CTRL-G and then enter "Today" or whatever 'today' is in your language into the input field. So for germans, "Heute" works as well.
