Update Outlook before you migrate to Exchange 2013/2016

ehlo!

Many of you use Outlook to connect to your Exchange-Server, right?
When did you last update your Outlook to the latest version? Wow, you installed Service Pack 1 for Office 2013?
If yes than you have a very old version of Outlook.

Microsoft releases monthly updates to Outlook to keep Outlook Up-to-Date for you newest Exchange versions.

If you do not install those updates you can have the strangest errors. Worst case with very versions is that you are not able to connect to Exchange 2013/2016 at all.

My recommendation before starting a migration project: Update Outlook to the latest available version. And it is easy to follow the latest version.

Outlook – latest Hotfixes: Latest available Update for Outlook (MSI-based installation)
Office-Click-To-Run – latest Version: Office Click-To-Run – latest Version
