Emails are not syncing
Email syncing issues may prevent you from receiving new messages, potentially due to server or connection problems. If this occurs on your end, restart your computer and review all internet settings; if that still doesn’t help, contact your company’s IT department for further help.
Exchange servers sometimes fail to synchronize emails correctly due to various causes, including network outages or issues with the Exchange server itself. When this occurs, use Microsoft 365’s Service Health Status tool (admin sign in required) to assess what’s going on and uncover more details of your issue.
Another likely source of the error could be that you created an account with incorrect credentials. This might occur if, for example, your password is incorrect or recently altered; to correct this situation try deleting and reconnecting or changing credentials again – either option should work eventually.
Use Microsoft 365 Service Health Status to detect whether there’s an issue with an Exchange server. As a business user, this feature will enable you to monitor performance of mail servers while providing users with maximum email security.
If you have an Exchange account at work, your IT team should be able to help address any problems that you’re encountering. Individual users can seek support via the Microsoft 365 support website or an outside provider.
Intel-powered Mac users can use a power-saving mode to prevent this issue. When rebooting, hold down the Shift key while it boots, and release it when the login window appears on-screen. After this, attempt to connect to your Exchange account; if that doesn’t work, restore a backup from another computer which will reset its.ost file correctly as well as use third-party apps like Airmail which use different methods to check for new emails.
Emails are not downloading
Email is one of the primary forms of communication in today’s modern world, serving as a conduit between you and family, friends and coworkers. Unfortunately, however, emails can sometimes not download due to connection issues between Microsoft Exchange Servers and Outlook on your PC – this can be very annoying, particularly if there’s an important message waiting to be read! However, there are steps that can help alleviate the situation quickly.
If you’re experiencing issues with your internet, the first step should be ensuring it is functional. If not, connect to another network; if the problem still remains unsolved contact your provider; otherwise if it stems from within your own computer then an update or repair program could solve it.
Resetting your Exchange account may also help. This method requires reentering all email account information – passwords and settings alike – which could save time if it turns out the problem lies with misconfiguration or corrupted cache files.
Corrupt mailbox folders can also cause this issue; this can happen if either your server or Exchange client experience an issue with the folder that stores mail server items. You can quickly check its health by using Microsoft 365 Service Health Status (admin sign in required).
If your emails still won’t download, it could be an issue with your network. To address this issue, reach out to your IT department to see if they have any suggestions on how to best address this situation.
Try connecting to another server and downloading your emails from there as this may be an efficient and quick solution that could save time. If this doesn’t work, try resetting your phone instead – which may also work.
If the issue persists, connect your iPhone to an exchange server using another email program and try connecting. This should reveal whether the issue lies within iOS or Exchange – if iOS issues, Apple should release an update to rectify. For Exchange issues, enable Active Sync on the server or re-set Accepted Domain Settings as possible solutions.

This could be related to either network connectivity issues or software compatibility issues on your computer; to fix these, rebooting Mac or switching networks might work; otherwise seek IT team advice immediately.
Emails may not be sending for several other reasons as well, including incorrect SMTP server settings. Please ensure your credentials and Exchange server name match; also double-check that SMTP port number matches as this will help identify whether there’s an issue with sending mail out. You can access these settings by choosing Tools > Accounts and clicking the account causing issues.
If your iPhone or other device that syncs through Exchange is having issues, try connecting it to another phone to see if calendar appointments synced from Exchange appear there instead of on your own iPhone. If that works better, the issue could lie either with Exchange itself or with its connection; you could also try unadding and readding Exchange accounts on both phones to see which solution works better.
The latest iOS on an iPhone may cause calendar appointments synced via Exchange ActiveSync to no longer display on the device, an issue which has been reported to Microsoft. If your data has become significantly accumulated on your iPhone, resetting might be the best solution.
Outlook cache can become corrupted and lead to synchronization issues, but you can empty it by following these steps and replacing its content with that from Exchange server. While this may only provide temporary relief, it should help until you can address the root cause of the problem.
If you are using a proxy server to connect to Exchange server, an SSL-encrypted connection must be established – this will ensure the connection remains safe. To do this, follow the steps outlined in “Using a Proxy to Connect to Mail Server” article of Exchange Support website.
