Problem with Sent Items in Outlook 2013 & 2016 IMAP

For many IMAP server settings, Outlook 2013 & 2016 try to determine the correct folders automatically, but unfortunately without success.

 

The result is that Outlook will ignore the already existing Sent Items and Deleted Items folder on the server and create some local ones of its own. Usually, you cannot also send or delete messages because your Outlook seems “offline”, but the only problem is that IMAP support in new version is not working as we expect.

All you have to do is to set the “Root folder path” option in your account settings, and Outlook will recognize the correct folders.

 

  1. File-> Account Settings-> Account Settings
  2. Double click on your IMAP account.
  3. Select “More Options”, then “Advanced”
  4. Option: Root folder path
  5. Usually setting this to “Inbox” will resolve the probem.

Click-to-Run and Window Installer on same computer?

“We’re sorry, Office Click-to-Run installer encountered a problem because you have these Windows Installer based Office programs installed on your computer”

 

Unfortunately, you can’t have Office products of the same version (like 2013 or 2016) that use two different installation technologies (Click-to-Run and Windows Installer) installed on the same computer. To fix this problem, remove the Windows Installer version of Office. Then, retry the installation of Office you were doing when you got the error message.
