  • SFC stands for system file checker.

    You can follow the below link

    Also if outlook is installed as your email client test the configuration of the email client.

    As a shortcut, you can press and hold the cntrl key, go to the system tray where the icon of your email client resides, right click on it and click on  Test-EmailAutoConfiguration

    You can check you gateway & DNS once too.

    A lot of things might just have gone wrong.

    Open cmd.exe and run the below commands:

    sfc //VERIFYONLY

    If it detects issues then run:

    sfc /SCANNOW

    But to just ask, this may not be the issue with your emails… What issue do you have that needed this suggestion?
