Are you one of the people having problems with Outlook 2016 opening and suddenly closing…???
Here is what IT did to fix it. I hope this helps my “tech-brethern.”…!!!
I found the basic problem to be that the OST files of Outlook are corrupt. Yes, these are the files that make up the IMAP database store. OMG… big files that are, really, database files…!!! What can go wrong…???…!!!
OK, please try this…>>>
ONE, open Control Panel > Mail > Data Files > Open File Location…
TWO, Now that you have an Explorer Window OPEN, just stay there.
THREE, close Control Panel.
FOUR, in your Explorer window GO, “Make new folder”, then MOVE your OST files into this folder. You may name this folder, anything that you wish. E.G. “myBackupFolderOfOSTfiles_dateSYNTAX”.
Now restart Outlook and let Outlook RE-create NEW OST files for your IMAP settings. This is FAST. You will get your email back in a few minutes.
OK… NEXT Step…>>>
Open Explorer. Go c:\PROGRAM FILES (not “x86”)\MS Office\ and find “outlook.exe.”
Now go, “File…>>> Open…>>> “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office16\OUTLOOK.EXE”
Now go…>>> right mouse button, “run as Administrator”, and load your Profile for Outlook.
Now go…>>> File, Options, Add-Ins, Manage, COM Add-Ins, GO, and UN-check all those Add-Ins that YOU DO NOT NEED… (i.e. most all of them).
WOW…That should be good. You have killed OFF unnecessary Add-Ins; you have created a fresh, new, clean, database in terms of a new OST file.
I hope this works for you. I am TOTALLY SATISFIED with this process.
However, you are “geek brethern”, you KNOW the drill…>>> “There is ALWAYS something more TO trip us up. This has worked for ME…
I desire multiple feedback from the planetary “geek matrix.” WOW, I could be TOTALLY off base. Perhaps, there is a better answer. Please geek BROS…!!! Let me have YOUR wisdom.
Thank you, Geek BROS, for your time and consideration…
I hope this helps someone…
