Microsoft Office 2016: Blurred text when using external monitor

Microsoft Outlook and other Office 2016 applications appear blurry when used on an external monitor.

This is a known issue and Microsoft's guidance is available here:

The issue can occur when the main display scaling is set to 125% and the external monitor is set to 100%.

To resolve:

Right click the desktop and select Display settings or Start > Settings > System > Display

In the Scale and layout section set the scaling value to be the same for both displays.
