I have an office where all users seem to be experiencing intermittent Outlook disconnects. The only way I've found to remedy the situation is to go inside of the network adapter properties and disable IPv6. There should be nothing on the network passing IPv6 traffic but it seems to be the culprit of the issue. Any thoughts on what may be going on here?

If you are intending not to use IPv6 inside your network, you should explicitly disable on all interfaces on networked devices. That's just good practice.
