Hello Outlook Forum -

Continuing issues with Outlook 2016 365, does anyone know if Online Repair (add / remove, modify) is the same as Uninstall / Reinstall Office?

Thanks,
John

It is, but considering the problems a client is having (the online repair apparently installed office as a Store app and it moved the ost files into C:\Users\drcp\AppData\Local\Packages\*, you might want to uninstall then reinstall yourself.

Or you can try repair and see if it does the same thing to your system. :) The client had problems sending mail and i discovered the configuration when i tried to figure out why it wasn't working.
