    Birthday reminders now ending after 10 years??

    Today I discovered that all (?) my birthday reminders are set to end after 10 occurrences. What is Microsoft's assumption? No one lives more than 10 years? After 10 years users will happily find different software to use for managing contacts? I seem to remember that all recurrences were set...

    I read about Onedrive.com/Outlook.com accounts migrating to exchange servers, and how it may fix some of the issues with the way Onedrive.com/Outlook.com currently handles contacts and calendar. Is this migration still in progress? How will I know if it has happened for my account?

    In past years 32 bit was recommended for Office, smoother operations, less problems with addins, more reliable. Is this still true for Office 2016? I am not working with large files in Excel, Access, and .pst is only 140mb. Speed difference for 64 bit?
