How To Perform Outlook Troubleshooting

Microsoft Outlook is a popular email client that is capable of managing your different email accounts with ease. Outlook avoids the need to specifically logging in to each of your different email accounts and instead downloads and lets you access your email messages by simply logging into your Outlook account.

Some Outlook troubleshooting tips

Though Outlook is renowned for its ease of use and features, it might sometimes come up with errors enough to perplex you. When you encounter problems while using Outlook, you need to perform certain troubleshooting steps to fix it. Keeping this in mind, Microsoft has included some Outlook repair tools that can help you fix the issue yourself.

Other than these built-in Outlook repair tools, you can also make use of the Windows repair utilities like the System Restore to resolve problems with Outlook. However, one cannot guarantee that performing the System Restore would successfully fix the Outlook issue, as it depends on the type of the issue.

For certain Outlook issues, performing the System Restore would be the easy fix. But at times, it can be an overkill. If your Outlook is behaving strangely, it is better to do some online research to get easy and useful tips on troubleshooting. You will get really useful tips from Microsoft Support online that can help fix your specific Outlook problem. Microsoft Support Center is a resource pool that contains valuable information about Outlook breakdowns and manual repairs.

Issues with Outlook Inbox and PST files can be fixed by using the built-in repair utility called the Inbox Repair tool (Scanpst.exe). There are also other repair tools like the Advanced Outlook Repair, Recovery Toolbox, Stellar Outlook PST Repair etc., which are available for a small amount of fee. These repair tools are used to fix specific Outlook problems.

Sometimes, even after using all these repair utilities, you might still have issues with using Outlook. If that is the case, it is advised to perform a reinstallation of Microsoft Outlook application on your computer. Before reinstalling Outlook, you need to backup your current Outlook data (.pst) files. Create regular backups, manually, of your Outlook .pst files so that you can restore emails, addresses, and calendars from these archives in the future. Once you have created the backups, you can go ahead and reinstall Outlook on your computer.

If you have any more Outlook problems, you can contact the Outlook support team and get further assistance.
