    Two problems - outlook/cortana

    Hi there,

    I am on version 1709, because on 1803, the cortana recommended news does not show.

    Is that fixed now?

    Also, in outlook 2016, the email sometimes does not synchronize.

    I can see on my phone I have the new emails, but sometimes in outlook I don't see them until I restart outlook.

    What could be wrong?

    Also, is there outlook 2019 now and how can I upgrade to that?

    Cortana fails to detect flight itinerary in Outlook

    Thank you, Andre, for providing the suggestions. At this point, I have performed the complete list of suggested remediations. I have also performed a reset (saving personal files) on my Surface Pro 4. None of the steps has resolved the problem with Cortana
    tracking flights.

    As a side note, this evening I asked Cortana to track a flight. The app correctly found flight tracker information on the Web (Launching Edge), but did not take the hint to track the flight.

    For validation, Outlook is correctly capturing the flight itineraries in my email. Cortana is properly tracking package deliveries, but will not track flight itineraries.

    This is certainly not the most important issue in my life, but it has become a bit of a nag that I'd like to resolve. Unless there is another suggestion, my next step will be to perform a complete reset.

    Appreciate the assistance.

    How to install outlook express on windows xp with explorer 8?

    This is an awkward problem to solve and one I don't think is worth the time and effort.

    The OP would be better off either using a modern webmail service like gmail or or using a modern email client like Windows Live Mail like FX-GMC suggested or Thunderbird from Mozilla. If nothing else, Outlook Distress was notorious for corrupting its data files and losing all your email in one easy step. Not worth it.
