Just can't get enough of IT

This blog is about mostly anything in IT. But the primary focuses are Microsoft Technologies like Exchange, Office 365, Azure and Cloud Security.

Troubleshooting Outlook connectivity issues with Office 365 is tricky. Administrators can use two valuable tools provided by Microsoft to identify and even fix client related connectivity issues.

1. Outlook Account Test Page

Start with the Outlook account problems test page in the Office 365 portal. You need to log on as the Office 365 user having issues.

The site tests for the following:

  • You are getting invalid license errors or messages that Office cannot verify the license.

If no issues are identified after you've logged on to Office 365, move to the next step.

2. Support and Recovery Assistant

The Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant (SARA) for Office 365 is click to run tool that is installed and executed locally.
