Outlook 2016 is not updating automatically
I have a group of laptops, which I just imaged, and I am in the process of setting up office for the users, however I noticed that outlook 2016 is not updating automatically, so the following are the steps that I tried, but it is still stuck on updating folder and doesn't go away.- 1.
So first I tried disabling cached mode, it worked initially but after the initial update, I tried to send an email to the address, and it never appeared. Deleted the profile, and recreated it, which looked liked it worked, but any new emails after that point do not appear, however outlook continues to download old emails.- 3. Did a total removal/re-install and that still didn't work.
The change log in the notes field displays the changed data, should it try to update the contact with old information. The key is the same for all versions of Outlook that support the Social Connector. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Social Connector DWORD: Run Automatic GALSync Possible Values: 0 (Never Sync) 1 (Update without Prompt) 2 (Prompt to sync) Default setting is Update without Prompting.
Basically, with millions of integrated calendars in their systems, some people could set a refresh rate every second and if they obey these settings, it could crash their servers.
For more information, refer him/her to Retention tags and retention policies on Tech Net.
From the list, choose the Retention Tag that you wish to apply.
Note: the social Connector is deprecated and may be removed from a future version. In Outlook 2003 or 2007, the Account Settings dialog is accessed from Tools, Social Networking Account settings.
While it may be tempting to turn off updating, it defeats one purpose of the social connector: to keep your contacts updated.
