  • Hi GregLPatterson,

    Based on your description, I wanted to ask you several questions about your issue.

    1. >>I just renewed Office<<, did you mean you upgrade your Office to Office 2016?
    2. >> I can't get skype for business with my Outlook 2016.<<, I'm not very clear about this problem. First did you mean you cannot install Skype for Business or you cannot use Skype for Business which you have installed in your computer?
    3. Did you get any error messages about this problem?

    First I suggest you provide more information about your issue.

    Then as far as I know if you upgrade to Office 2016, Skype for Business will be removed automatically. This might be the reason of your problem.

    I suggest you install the new stand-alone Skype for Business from this KB article:

    Any updates please let me know, I'm glad to help and follow up your reply.
