Outlook issues

I was able to install Office 2016_Setup.x86.en-US_Pro Plus Retail_TX_PR_act_1_.exe. One of the posts here talked about installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 (14.0). With this setup I was able to get the install to work and activate.

I am having an issue with Outlook though. I can activate my email only with IMAP. All other account types fail. The account is actually Office 365.  I am able to send test emails and they work except on the outlook install. When I use Send/Receive,  it tells me it cant check my email that the server is not available. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

You have gotten farther than I could. Installing Office365 (2016) works okay; after much agony I got outlook to successfully set up my account via IMAP, however I can't actually start outlook without getting the following error:
"Outlook 2016 cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. The information store cannot be opened."
Even starting with the /safe parameter doesn't get me past this.

Hmm this is disheartening as Outlook is the only reason I need Office. I was thinking about upgrading to Office 365 but if you cant get that to work either then no point in wasting more cash.

Outlook 2016 is not currently expected to work consistently in CrossOver Linux (although some account types might work, so feel free to try it out!).  We have seen greater success on CrossOver Mac.  We have been focusing on the three "big" applications (Excel, Word, Powerpoint), but we are constantly trying to increase compatibility.  We will keep in mind that there is interest from the community in Outlook 2016 when prioritizing our limited resources.  If we are able to include Outlook support in the future, we will include this change in the release notes, so stay tuned!

Saying that you were not expecting Office Outlook to work yet you list that Office 2016 is 4 stars is incorrect. Outlook is part of Office 2016. That is a really sad way to advertise what you have working.

You really need to work on what is working rating system.

Thank you for the continues support on other products.

For me Outlook is also the sole reason for buying crossover. If I want to run the other applications, I can use wine instead.
Or Libreoffice. But there's no pendant for Outlook. Especially when you want to connect to MS Exchange. There just no
other applications that support the MAPI protocol this well. For E-Mail IMAP may suffice, but not for full calendar and
appointment support.

Therefore I couldn't understand your strategy in concentrating in Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Even when Powerpoint crashes
every time I start it. Here's the exception. For whom it may concern.

Unhandled exception: page fault on write access to 0x00000000 in 32-bit code (0x0343d79b).

We realized that we have not been clear about which parts of the Office suite currently have functionality, and in an attempt to remedy this, we have changed the compatability website so that the ratings of each individual application within the Office 2016 suite are shown individually on the main Office suite page here.  We hope that this alleviates some of the frustration regarding the Office 2016 ratings.

Good day,
           Thank you for updating what is supported on Office. This makes this more helpful to know if we should attempt to use the software.

Any updates to getting Outlook 2016 / 365 to work?

I'd rather that get fixed than adjust rating stars.

Hello Dan,

Yes, CrossOver 18.0.0 included significant improvements to the Office 365 version of Outlook 2016 on Linux. If you've not done so yet, I encourage you to give it a try:

I bought Crossover 18.  

Similar to the folks in the thread above, I can't get Outlook to work.

Outlook and Access are key parts to MS Office as well as Word, Excel and Power Point.

Outlook doesn't seem to work.

I was able to install Office 365 using Office 2016 settings however i am unable to login to activate any of the products.
