Most of you might have used Outlook email client for sending and receiving emails. Even though Outlook is considered as one of the best email clients, it can sometimes give many troubles to the user. According to Outlook problems and help center, one such trouble is the failure to send an email. When you try to send the email, you might receive an error message and the email stays in the Outbox of the program. In this post, we will find out how to fix this issue.
Send another email
You need to find out whether the issue is with this particular email or all other emails. For this, send a test email to your account.

This is one of the first steps you should carry out, when the issue is not associated with a particular email. Click the option Tools in the program and choose Account Settings. From the list of configured email accounts, choose the one from which you are unable to send the emails and click the button Change. This will take you to the window for Change E-mail Account, where you will see the different Outlook settings for the account. Verify if the settings match with the settings provided by your email service provider. Keep in mind that even a small change in any of the settings like incoming server, outgoing server or port numbers could make the program fail to send or receive messages.
Start in safe mode
Launching Outlook in safe mode is one of the techniques to find out whether the issue is associated with a particular add-on. For this, select the Run window and type Outlook /safe. This opens Outlook in safe mode. Try to send the email again. If you are successful, remove add-ons one by one from the program and find the one causing trouble.

MS Outlook can be used as the mail client for your Exchange Server account. The Outlook folders in your mail client will be synchronized with the Exchange Server folders, and you will be updated on all the corporate contacts and calendar events accessible from your account. However, some of the Outlook problems reported about the use of Exchange Server accounts in the mail account have to do with synchronisation errors.
Dealing with the Outlook Exchange Server account synchronization errors
This means that the Outlook folders in your laptop or mobile device are not being updated regularly, because of connection problems with the Exchange Server online. You can check this easily by right clicking on any of the Outlook folders and selecting the Sync option from the menu.
Now, this will display synchronisation statistics for that particular folder. It will have information about the last sync date and time, and details on the items present in the online and offline account folders. This will make it clear whether this folder is correctly synchronised with the online Exchange Server folder.
If Outlook problems like synchronisation errors are happening, then there might be some connection problems with the Exchange Server at your end. So, check if the Outlook settings you entered during the account setup are indeed correct. If not, then make the necessary changes. If the issue has something to do with the poor connectivity in your laptop or mobile phone, then you need to rectify this first.
If you cannot find anything wrong at your end, contact the System Administrator and ask if they are having any problems at theirs. Their server might be having technical problems, resulting in a service outage. Your mail client will be able to synchronise correctly with the Exchange folders, when the server comes back online.
If you are using a mobile device for accessing the Exchange Server account, you should check the device memory every now and then. If the device memory is too low, the MS Outlook application might not be able to synchronise completely. Delete or archive the old mail messages, or use a separate micro SD card to fix this problem.
These are just some of the problems that might be affecting the Outlook synchronisation process with the Exchange Server. After all this, if you are still seeing the same problem, contact the Outlook support personnel for assistance.

Outlook problems abound, but recently there’s been more than everyone’s fair share doled out. According to posts from Twitter and various other forums, Microsoft has been suffering from widespread outage recently. Several features of Microsoft Corporation, which includes Office 365 cloud service, came to a complete halt according to The Washington Post. The problem lasted the entire day.
Although Microsoft acknowledged the outage on its Twitter feed and the official help forum, Microsoft refused to return calls to media outlets with more information. However, the Service Status Dashboard states that everything is running normally, almost mocking the Microsoft service users.
Microsoft seems to be having problems with the Exchange Online service, according to Microsoft Corporation’s Office 365 Twitter account. The tweet even mentions engineers are working on creating a solution to fix the problem. This outage affects Enterprise customers, who compose a major source of income to Microsoft, since the service allows them to operate their contacts, calendars and email services.
Concerned users took to isitdownrightnow, a website that lets you know if the server is down and from which end. Although this service was able to successfully ping (establish contact with) Microsoft Office 365 and reach the server, over 60 users mentioned the service was having issues over the previous few hours. However, downrightnow, another similar service, reported potential problems with Microsoft Corporation’s LiveJournal. With no proper channel for communication and Microsoft’s continued silence, users took to complaining over Facebook and Twitter about Outlook problems.
This is the second service outage recently. Microsoft’s communication service Lync faced severe outage. This was a widespread issue with the company blaming Network routing infrastructure as the root cause of the problem.
Even though there was no word from Microsoft when the service was down, corporate vice president of Office 365 engineering, Rajesh Jha issued an apology saying “I want to apologize on behalf of the Office 365 team for the impact and inconvenience this has caused. Email and real-time communications are critical to your business, and my team and I fully recognize our accountability and responsibility as your partner and service provider.”
This outage will come as bad news for the sales of Microsoft 365, Microsoft Azure, and other cloud based application whose main selling point is that customers need not worry about maintaining and servicing On-premises servers and patching applications. If the Microsoft service goes down, the entire enterprise will grind to a complete halt.
