Are you having problems sending or receiving emails? Here's what you should do.
Application – Outlook (Problems Sending or Receiving Email)
Things which you can try:
Check to ensure you have internet access - Your e-mail client (i.e. Microsoft Outlook) will not be able to process e-mail if you are not connected to Microsoft’s servers online.
Using a VPN - If you access e-mail over a VPN connection, ensure the VPN is connected otherwise you will not be able to send or receive e-mail.
Restart your e-mail client - Close and reopen Outlook so that connectivity is re-established with Microsoft’s servers.
Outlook connectivity status – Check the connection status on the bottom right-hand side of the Microsoft Outlook window. Ideally you will want to see that it says “Connected to: Microsoft Exchange”, however there may be warnings such as “Disconnected” or “Needs password” which will require further action.
Login username & password - Please ensure that you are using your latest, up-to-date credentials. Expired passwords will no longer authenticate your access and may disconnect you from the Microsoft e-mail servers until the correct credentials have been applied.
