Error trying to Connect - Exchange 2010, Outlook 2010 & Windows 10

I have several workstations that when you open Outlook, in the lower right hand corner it says 'trying to connect' and takes several minutes before it will say Connected to Microsoft Exchange.  Sometimes I have to force 'update folder' to get it to connect.  This is happening on several (but not all) Windows 10 machines.  We are running Exchange 2010 & Outlook 2010.

If I look at Event Viewer on a PC - it just shows that Outlook is hanging.

Tried all of the above with no luck.  Loaded the Win 10 Anniversary update and suddenly when we start Outlook - it immediately connects to server.  No clue why this fixed it but it did.

Take one of the problem machines, delete the Outlook Profile (Control Panel, Mail). Shut down the machine, start it up and create a new Outlook Profile. Test and please let us know.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I tried starting in safe mode - no difference - same issue.  I did remove and create a new Outlook mail profile - no difference - same issue.

Again on one problem computer.

1. Try uninstalling Office, restarting and then reinstalling Office and updating it.

2. If this does not work, make a new, test Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account, set up Outlook and test.

Is there any difference in Windows updates on the Windows 10 machines on which it works from the ones on which its having issues.  Also check if there are any add-ins for outlook on the machines with problems.

I have no idea why you close the question the way you do... the point system is being misused, clearly.
