Hi all,

please have a look into comment #2 of the bugreport. It describes a workaround for the problem and brings up the "old style" account creation dialog of MS Outlook.

This was working for us....

Regards
Thomas

I guess everyone on this thread has opened a Support Case (you should) with Zimbra and added their comment and votes to the bug report?

From the bug report, here's a workaround one liner that turns off the simplified account creation screens. It can be run in the user context. I've added this to my GPO and pushed to all users, and it works!

Code: Select all

REG ADD HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Setup /v DisableOffice365SimplifiedAccountCreation /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

My work around is Control Panel then to mail. I set it up there while Outlook is closed.

I hope this helps,

Mace
