outlook 2016 search folders not updating-31

When someone sends them a new message then it will not become visible until they click the Inbox. "Pegasus (MVP)" I am having the same exact problem here, for one of my users, they were on 2000 outlook, i upgraded and removed profile and added it back after installing 2003 and it worked fine.

Hi I updated to office 2016 for windows 10 through my office365 subscription earlier today.-- rboklewski ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------ rboklewski's Profile: t=1230908 Posted from - also have 1 other user like this, have no clue what it might be.-- rboklewski ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------ rboklewski's Profile: t=1230908 Posted from - the problem by updating to outlook 2003, but the only thing is the outbox is not updating until something is clicked on, but i can live with that, because messages are still being sent. It was still doing it when i chose upgrade, when i ran the 2003 setup. I would turn off 'cached mode' for affected uses to see if this alleviates problem.Since then using Outlook 2016 the imap folders from our mailserver just won't sync - it shows progress but no new mail appears.Our other PC's with Outlook 2013 are running and picking up messages OK. Only a single version of Outlook can be installed at a time on a computer.

When installing Office 2016 while a previous version of Outlook is still installed, Outlook 2016 will be installed and the previous version of Outlook will be removed; even when you select to keep the previous versions.

I downloaded and set up standalone Outlook 2016 and added one of my email accounts. So now what appears in my folder pane is Favorites (inbox, sent items, deleted items), personal folders file (which contains all of my imported inbox emails, subfolders, RSS feeds, etc) and the email account that I added (with its associated inbox, drafts, etc).

I then copied the PST file from my old PC to the new one and imported my "old" emails.

Note: In Outlook 2016, when you search messages by using Advanced Find in frequently-used text fields, you may receive the following error message: Outlook cannot perform your search. A Search Folder is a virtual folder that provides a view of all email items that match specific search criteria.

In the meantime, please see this article for workarounds and more information.

I reorganized my email and added 3 more data files (removing a few more older ones).
