Outlook Stuck On Updating Inbox

Outlook 365 works on two-way synchronization. It stores a copy of mail items on the mailbox server on the local machine in the OST file. The changes made in Outlook are stored in the OST file and synchronized frequently with the mailbox server and vice-versa. However, Outlook cannot update the mail items to or from the mailbox server when synchronization fails. In such cases, users can neither send nor receive emails, leading to Outlook being stuck at updating the Inbox and Outbox folders issue.

My boss was formely using outlook 2013(POP), then he stared having problem getting all his inbox mails, so we deleted the the account and create an IMAP account for the mail. He is able to get all his inbox mail now synchronizing well but his sent mails doesnt show in the outlook but reflect on his gmail server and his Iphone. pls help out . thanks

Worked like a charm for me in regards to two things I have been searching for 2 days. New laptop and installed outlook 2013 and my first problem was not synching or allowing to delete an email from the inbox and the 2nd problem was not pulling in new emails. I disabled the only show subscribed folders and both problems were fixed. THANK YOU

I have office 2013 on my computer and am still using windows 7. I typically use outlook from as part of office 2013 on my desk top, but it dose not always sync so if I go to hotmail/ or get my emails via my android phone or ipad the emails are not always the same. I understand my folders may take some time to sync, but emails in my inbox are not getting to me on my desk top using outlook via office 2013. What can I do?

I installed Yahoo IMAP account with Outlook 2013, all my folders/subfolders including Sent & Trash are perfectly syncing except Inbox. My Yahoo inbox has around 5000+ mails, but outlook only synced 600+ mails.

Hi there- i am having issues with new emails coming into my inbox. i just downloaded microsoft 365 on a new computer and my outlook isnt updating. the last email that came through was Monday morning. i am able to send emails. When i run a test email it completes and comes through outlook on my other computer but not current one. When i try to repair a message comes through about encryption error.

I had a quick question about exchange shared mailboxes. Lately I've had several people in my organization tell me that their shared mailboxes are not updating when emails are sent. They can manually update the folder and emails will come through but once manually updated nothing else comes through. I've tried clearing our their offline items, manually updating the folder after that, turning off a few different add on that could be causing issues, and removed their delegations and re-added them. We do have an exchange server that we use but I would think if it was a problem with the server that more people would be having this issue. Its also good to note that this is only an issue with the desktop app version of outlook so far.
