When this change becomes effective Outlook 2007 and earlier versions will be unable to connect to Office 365 mailboxes, hence you will be unable to send or receive e-mails without logging into the web portal. Also, there will be no security updates & Microsoft will not address any software related issues. To maintain connectivity you will need to either upgrade to a newer version of Outlook, or once again, you’ll be forced to use Outlook on the web which is much less user-friendly.

If you think you have Outlook 2007 /Office 2007 and need help to upgrade contact us. We’ll be happy to provide a cost list and a free IT consultation. Registered charities get a discounted/minimal price for software upgrades whereas businesses simply need to choose the most economical option.

Although there’s still some time until the end of October it’s really important to decide on the plan of action to avoid future interruption.  Why must Outlook 2007 be discontinued? Microsoft gives a number of reasons, and mentions that newer versions of Outlook could also be affected. To find out more, or if you’re interested in technical details please click here.

In conclusion, where there is a problem there’s always a solution. Hence, if you think you might be affected and don’t have appropriate technical support in place get in touch with Compucare. While you take care of business as usual we will take care of IT bits for you!
