  • Question

  • Hi

    OS win10 Enterprise
    Office365 Business with 2016 install

    trying to set up digital ID and Encryption, however every time we try and choose a signing certificate Outlook crashes.

    in the eventlog we have,

    Faulting application name: OUTLOOK.EXE, version: 16.0.7668.2066, time stamp: 0x5883d8a7 Faulting module name: Windows.UI.Xaml.dll, version: 10.0.14393.594, time stamp: 0x5850ccd7

    has anybody come across this?

  • Hi,

    Please go to Control Panel > Mail > Show Profiles, click Add to create a new profile and setup this account in new profile.

    Set "When starting Microsoft Outlook, use this profile: Prompt for a profile to be used". Use this new profile and confirm if Outlook crashes when you select a certificate for email encryption in new profile.

    Additionally, please run Ran sfc /scannow to scan if there is corrupted file in your Windows system. For details, please refer to:
