When starting Outlook, the first mail I click, open immediately, if I go to the next, also works ok, however (and after a few seconds) if I pick a random one, the app get stuck waiting forever with the dots dancing on top and close itself.

Upon reopening Outlook, (sometimes) the splash shows up for a few seconds and close, opening again, work for some time.

Is there any new or alternative version to replace Outlook? Is this a known issue?

  • I'm using Exchange Server 2010, Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook.com. I assume that when selecting one the others are 'dormant' (ie not using resources). The problem is the same with all of them. Sometimes, replies and forwards, looks like are sent but never arrives. – fcm Dec 23 '15 at 22:07
  • Do you have a lot of emails? On my Lumia 830 outlook is running fine but i use gmail only so i have no experience with multiple accounts in outlook. – Andree Wille Dec 23 '15 at 22:09
  • Outlook and Exchange are quite smart on handling large number of mails, (usually) only the headers are transmitted and upon opening the mail is pulled from the source. Before W10, this was not and issue. – fcm Dec 23 '15 at 22:14
  • Is the app and your phone up to date? – RareNCool Dec 24 '15 at 16:36
