The heise editorship has been contacted by a reader, which reports by a striking problem, which now reports some people: with outlook 2016 open, only the repair of data files is offered. The attempt to set up a new outlook profile with new data files shows no effect. The reader writes: "we could find the problem with customers with exchange / o365 accounts and at a customer with pop3 mailfachers."
The author of this article was also known to the problem because it got information from us bloggers. First messages in the forum of askwoody.Com show that it gets wide. Also in the microsoft answers forum can be found in descriptions of the error image.
In all cases outlook refuses to start because of the damaged pst file. The attempt to repair outlook on the internal functions does not help any further. Currently it is unclear whether the problem is drawn in outlook through a windows or an office update of june 2020. The author is known only in outlook 2016.
