Very informative. I've used it once but I'm not sure of one detail. Does this method include the recovery of all deleted items such as Contacts, calendar and tasks or just emails?

Microsoft Outlook is not just an email client but it is full featured Personal Information Manager. But sometimes Outlook gets disconnected and you simply can’t access it. What steps can you perform before calling IT support? In this article we will see how a non geek person can troubleshoot Outlook connectivity issues. I will demonstrate some basic steps that you can perform to resolve outlook connectivity issues.

#1 Uncheck offline Mode

Screenshot-1.jpgConfirm that offline mode option under File Menu is not selected. If it is then uncheck it. If you are using later version of outlook like 2010 or 2013 then you will find this under send/receive tab>>work offline button.

#2 Restarting Outlook or system sometime works!

Most of the restarting outlook or system work and resolve the connectivity issue with Exchange Server. So, it’s better to restart then call IT support.

#3 Repair Outlook Data File with Microsoft Outlook Inbox Repair Tool

Note: Close Outlook before starting the PST repairing tool.
Outlook stores data in two formats: PST (Personal Storage Table) Format and OST (offline Storage Table). When Outlook is configured with Exchange Server, using Cache Exchange Mode enabled, only then OST file is created on client system which is sync with exchange server. Most of the time these Outlook data files gets corrupted and you need to repair them. Microsoft recommends scanost.exe and scanost.exe tools to repair PST and OST file respectively.
