try to Open Outlook 2016 on a Windows 10 machine, when it was installed and activated everything seems to work fine, however in the last couple of days when trying to open it the Outlook 2016 splash screen appears and says starting and it just hangs there, it will never go into the actual mailbox.

What could be going on?

Thanks in advance!

You may have a corrupt OST. If you do not need the OST just uncheck cached exchange mode and see if it loads. Just go under account settings, highlight the email account, click change, go to more settings on the next screen, go to advanced tab, uncheck exchange mode.

Try opening outlook in safe mode. Hit the Windows Key  and the R key to bring up the run line. Type Outlook.exe /safe    It could be an add-on that is causing this.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

So what you do now is go thru the add-ons that you load and add them one at a time till you find the culprit. :)

Good luck! Thanks for starting my outlook troubleshooting part of my brain. I need it for one of my customers this morning. :)
