I’ve written in the past about various issues involving Outlook and security, third-party software, add-ins, etc. But there are also less email specific issues that can affect the basic working functionality of Outlook. These basic issues can be addressed with some standard troubleshooting procedures.
If you have installed Outlook with the Corporate or Workgroup option – which supports the Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) services - then here are some areas that can have a negative impact on the operation of Outlook when mis-configured: TCP/IP settings, Domain Naming and Exchange server configurations. Configuration problems can affect such Transport services as: Internet email, Microsoft Exchange Server, Address Book and Personal Folders.
If you want to find out what Outlook option is installed you can click About Microsoft Outlook, on the Help menu and then verify the installation as “Corporate or Workgroup”.
