Problem with messages in Outlook 2016 on a W10 fully updated computer

What's happening increasingly frequently is that when I try to save an email I've received I get a refusal with a message to the effect that I cannot save it because the message is changed.

Suggestions, Experts, please.

POP3 or Exchange?

Either way, except if POP back up your PST for safety, go to Control Panel, Mail, delete the Outlook Profile, shut down, start up and make a new Outlook Profile / Account and test.

POP3

Please say more about the Outlook Profile.

Outlook has a Profile that keeps main things about Outlook and the Outlook account. Deleting it allows a damaged profile to be re-created properly. I do this for the kind of issues such as you are having.

Following a profile's deletion, is a new profile created automatically, or do I have to adjust settings?

No, you must make a new Profile, and make the Account again. You can delete the profile (Outlook must be closed), then restart as I noted, open Outlook to make the new account and that action will create the profile.

Are there any instructions I can look at?

I'm unduly fearful of changing things in Outlook 2016 and W10 because of problems -- serious problems -- I've encountered.

Back up your PST (Outlook must be closed).
Go to Control Panel, Mail.
Delete the Outlook Profile.
Close out, shut down, start up.
Open Outlook.
Make a new Account. Point the Account (Manual Creation) to the existing PST file.
All should be working.
