I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What error do you get ?
How do you its a windows update that has caused the issue ?
Try uninstalling office updates and see which one fixes the issue.

Check to make sure that Outlook is the default Mail application in both Outlook and Sage.
Make sure Windows and Office are both up to date.
Ask Sage Support for and update to Sage.  This is the likely cause.

Sage remoted in when I wasn't there and tried everything they could

They suggested an office repair - trying that now

I'm using office 2010 and last step will be to install office 2016

Bit of it's not 2010 - what could it be

Error message is sage specific and bland

"Emailing failed : mail error Failure "
