Hi, and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you today.

This has been an acknowledged compatibility glitch with Outlook 2016 and MAC OS X Sierra; to get around this issue, please do this now:

Click on the Apple menu button at the top-left corner of your screen, and then click "System Preferences".

Next, click "Network", and then select the network service you use in the list, for example, Ethernet or Wi-Fi.

Next, click "Advanced", and then click "Proxies".

Finally, UNCHECK both the "Auto Proxy Discovery" and the "Automatic Proxy Configuration" option, if checked. Click OK.

Done that, re-open Outlook - does it work all right this time?

Do keep me posted. If you need more help or if the issue is still not resolved, please use the Reply box below to continue our conversation.
