Help! Outlook won’t send emails since Windows 10 update

So, Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 today… I personally quite like it but would still prefer to be working in Windows 7.  Hey Ho though we must all embrace change.  I was still on Vista this time last year.

I bought a new lap top earlier this year and it was a big adjustment, however, I loved how windows 8 looked with all the bright colours and the apps on the main menu.  What I didn’t like was the lack of start key.

Windows 10 has promised to bring us the start key and that it does, however, it’s still not as simple as Windows 7. However, all isn’t lost as there’s a nifty freebie you can install, which takes your start key right back to good old Widows 7 style called Start 8, get it here It’s FAB!!

Outlook won’t send emails since Windows 10 update

I was quite happy playing around with Windows 10 until I tried to reply to a clients email.  I received an error message that my email hadn’t gone.  I checked my web email account and was able to send direct from there and also from my phone. Strange.  Then had an influx of calls from clients telling me they were unable to send me emails. aha… Windows 10 was the culprit.

3 hours later on the phone to Microsoft I’ve been informed that Windows 10 has corrupted Outlook files and this is the fix that needs to be ran in order for Outlook to send emails.

  1. Open CMD in admin mode, to get this right click on the start key and select Command Prompt (Admin)
  2. type in : sfc /scannow
  3. create a new shortcut of the outlook program in your desktop, if this doesn’t work then try running Outlook in admin mode.

This should fix it.  Hope I’ve been able to give you a few nifty hints about Windows 10 and a few niggles..


Have a great day!!
