Microsoft’s Outlook email application for Windows crashes at launch for a large number of users around the world. Office 365 business users report that Outlook launches and then crashes immediately, apparently after a recent update. “We are investigating whether a recently deployed update could be the cause of this problem,” said Microsoft in a Twitter status update. “As a workaround, users can use Outlook on the web or their mobile clients. “
Affected users should be able to connect to Outlook on the web until the issues are resolved. IT administrators on Reddit are also testing various workarounds to cancel the update that appears to have caused the crashes today.
We have contacted Microsoft to further comment on Outlook crash issues and will update you accordingly.
