Outlook is asking to configure every time I open outlook. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am using VPN connection to connect to the exchange server for emails.

    I configured my exchange email settings in my outlook. It is opening and start updating folders, once it get updated fully, if we close and reopen outlook again it will ask to configure form the beginning.

    I spoke to my IT team regarding my outlook profile in the server, they replied that profile is ok and ask me to check local PC.
