Generally software should be updated every 3 years. It has surprised us that Microsoft Office versions have continued to work pretty well even 10 years later.

That all just changed with new security features being required to process mail. If you are running MS office 2016 or older, you will no longer be able to process your google mail through outlook without upgrading your software.

The noted impacted versions are:

  • Outlook 2007
  • Outlook 2010
  • Outlook 2013 (versions earlier than 15.0.4971.1000)

The reason for this is a security issue and the management of “less secure apps”

What are your options? Upgrade your MS office to 2021 Desktop version for $279.00.

Lease office 365 for $99.00 per year.

Forget Outlook and go to to get your email.

Need help? That’s what you have us for! We sell and install MS office via remote support.
