  • Hello Dear,

    Does this issue happen in Microsoft Outlook safe mode? If you haven't checked this, please try it.

    1. To do this, press Windows key + R to open the Run command, type outlook.exe /safe and press Enter. If the problem would be gone in safe mode, please go to File >> Options >> Add-ins and disable suspicious add-ins to resolve the problem.
    2. Install the latest Windows office updates.
    3. Check the mailbox size. (Old outlook versions crash mostly because of oversized file)
    4. Repair Outlook database file with Scanpst.exe or Inbox repair tool .
    5. Disable computer's antivirus and then use MS Outlook. It might be possible you are facing issues with Microsoft Outlook because of Antivirus.

    For more info, please refer this KB article to troubleshoot Outlook crash issue: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2934538/how-to-troubleshoot-crashes-in-outlook-2010-and-later-versions


    Hope it helps!!

    Thanks & Regards,

  • Hi Alan,

    Does this issue happen to all users in the same environment to only to some specific users?

    Since the crash happens randomly, this might be difficult to troubleshoot. Please try starting Outlook in safe mode and see whether this issue continues. This help eliminates if the problem is related to any third party add-ins. To do this, please exit Outlook, press Win key + R to open the Run command, type outlook.exe /safe, press Enter.

    Besides, it is also recommended to check for and install all the available updates for both Windows and Office to see if there will be any improvement.

    Any updates, please feel free to post back.

    Best regards,
    Yuki Sun

  • Hi Kevin

    Thanks a lot for the tip. After running outlook in safe mode there were no issues so now i knew it had to be an addin. In add-ins i disabled 4 add-ins and the problem was solved. 

    Good tip that is a good recipe for combatting outlook problems. I will make a note of it. 

    Regards Lars
