    Gone back to Office 2010

    Hi folks.

    The latest problems with OUTLOOK 2016 and OUTLOOK 2019 just made me uninstall that lot and go back to OFFICE 2010 which is still getting regular updates -- I don't need some of the "collaboration" stuff in 2016/2019-- the base package office 2010 is just fine. SKYPE works just fine too.

    My main concern was in getting Outlook 2016 or Outlook 2019 to function correctly with IMAP and my own domain mail servers.

    First the new auto config wouldn't work and I had to mess around with control panel applet.

    Then there was a problem with the Unicode text .

    I finally gave up when SENT mail from say machine A couldn't be seen when I logged on to Machine B or C even though config OK and set as IMAP server so post should be on the server -- .
    When checking on the actual server with its web application some mail was in the sent mail - the other was just lost -- goodness knows where it went.

    If I'm doing any sort of e-commerce from the domain I must have 100% reliable mail client.

    Office 2010 (Outlook 2010) functions 100% in every case and on all machines.

    Not sure how Ms has managed to hose up a really decent mail client.

    latest nonsense also for those using BIG screens (60 inch sort of thingeys) you can't adjust the fonts for headings etc any more properly -- you just get selection large-->bigger-->biggest and it looks really stupid on a large screen if your mail text is nice and large but reading the mailbox the headings are TINY compared to the text !!!!!!

    Outlook 2010 works fine with adjustable font sizes

    update -- even weirder

    On another machine with OUTLOOK 2016 installed the previous SENT MAIL on machine with office 2010 installed is visible.

    Now if I SEND email from outlook 2016 it's visible in the SENT MAIL folder on that machine -- logon to machine with OUTLOOK 2010 -- mail isn't there in sent folder -- I've double and triple checked every possible config setting.

    I tested also with Outlook 2007 running on an XP VM as well -- no problems.

    Latest versions of outlook (2016 and 2019 -- haven't got outlook/365 so can't test that) are a disaster zone for an email client it seems (at least to me). Funny how this stuff worked OK until they switched it all to "Click 2 Run" versions. !!!! That broke things big time.

    No Office 2010 Updates Since June?

    I believe Office 2010 updates have been broken via Windows Update on two PC following upgrading them to v1803 in July. I've now removed and reinstalled Office 2010 as follows which worked and found all the missing updates.

    1. Uninstalled Office 2010 completely using the MS Office removal tool o15-ctrremove.diagcab
    2. Installed and activated Office 2010 from my original installation file
    3. Installed Office Service Pack 2 officesp2010-kb2687455-fullfile-x86-en-us.exe
    4. Searched and updated Office 2010 via Windows Update. This found and installed c. 50 updates since Service Pack 2.
