    Outlook 2016 iPhone won't download Outlook 2016 Mail.

    iPhone has stopped downloading my inbox from Outlook 2016. In the Mailboxes window I can find some recent Sent mail, but nothing else. Any ideas what causes this hangup? My gmail account downloads properly. I have removed the Outlook.COM account from the phone. Is it required to pass on mail...

    Outlook 2016 Outlook 2016 stalls

    I am in the process of installing V1903 (on my wife's system). I'll do that first to see if it clear things up. I can't get into the Outlook interface, but I recall that it was IMAP. Haven't tried other remedies yet. Will report back if problems remain.

Now when I try to share, I get a popup "Some permissions cannot be displayed" I searched on this and found the topic in the forums, but it seems to be a Dev-level solution, involving tool downloads, complex instructions and Exchange. Looks...
