  • Hi Ben,

    I also didn't find such an Anti-Virus exclusion list for Office 2016.

    As per my experience, of all Office applications, you only need to take care of Outlook, when you plan antivirus scanning settings. Potential issues may arise if certain Outlook files are in use during scanning.

    Refer to this TechNet article for antivirus scanning settings for Microsoft Outlook:

    (Note, this article applies to Outlook 2013, but the steps should hold good for Outlook 2016)

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you need further assistance on this.

    Regards,
