Guys i am having some issues with our lenovo laptops and office 2013 and Microsoft can't seem to figure out. When users using lenovo laptops send emails it gets stuck in outbox and to resolve we need to close and re-open outlook, after reopen outlook all the email disappears and the user have to retype the email and send again.

i have Dell's PC's and they work well with office 365, the lenovo are pretty new PC's running Windows 8.

Any help is appreciated

This is not about Lenovo. It should be because of Outlook itself or user mailbox is too big and that cause Outlook to respond properly. You can try following.

1. Try creating new PST file as default email delivery location
2. Disable Outlook addons if it is not in used or not required. (Google it how to disable)
3. Run windows updates/ Office 2013 service pack updates

Thanks for replying
we have 50GB limit on our mailboxes and users are under 1GB. i re-created their outlook profiles, and ost files
All Outlook add-ons are disabled ( i tried that )
All laptops are fully updated, i even ran the lenovo updates also.

I had recently this problem as well. And it was on IBM T61 laptop (same lenovo now). The solution was reinstalling outlook. I did also took my laptop out of domain network and put it back.

Does it work if you use webmail? And are the settings for outgoing email the same as on pc where it works?

The curse of the end user strikes again      

You’ve updated all your end user’s email signatures. Hooray! But guess what? They’re playing around with the HTML, adding stupid taglines and ruining the imagery. Find out how you can save your signatures from end users today.

Try to install Outlook 2007 on it and see if you have the same problem in Outlook 2007.
