I haven't had an issue with Word. I have 3 email accounts, however I am unable to access my Hotmail

OK lets first try to open outlook is safe mode and see if its stable in that mode.

To open in safe mode.

Click on start then type outlook /safe and press enter.

See if it that opens outlook in safe mode and see if you are facing the same non responsive issues.Let me know.

The not responding appears to be solved. However, it now sends multiple copies of the same email. When I open a saved draft, it creates another copy so I end up with several copies of the same email in drafts. When I send one of them, it sends multiple emails. a friend, last night, received 10 copies of the same email! GeeVargese tried to solve this too, but it is obviously still an issue. I would be grateful for assistance as I cannot continue to use this.

Glad to know that the not responding issue got solved.I didn't do anything regarding multiple copies of email sending to a contact.

I will be glad to take a look at the new issue if you are free now or let me know a feasible time for you to check it later also mention the time zone too.

I have 30 mins now or after 1400 Spanish time. It is now 11.30 here.

30 mins might not be enough because your net connection is little bit slow so connecting and then checking the issue and fixing it might take more than that.

two and a half hour later from now is not a feasible time for me but 1600 your time will be fine for me.Is that OK with you?

That would be great. I have a dental appointment otherwise we could continue now. It does seem it's the issue with the multiple copies of drafts that you tried to solve yesterday. If I try to send one of them then all the others go too! Just had a message from my friend to say she received another 7, making 18 in all! I'm sure I didn't have that many in the drafts folder!

No problem will check the issue on 1400 your time.

Sorry John, I thought we agreed on 1600 as 1400 was difficult for you?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
actually 1600 would suit me better too

My mistake it is 1600 your time I apologize for that.1600 your time is fine.

Hi John, Sorry but I'm still having issues with the Drafts and sending. Yesterday was the first time I worked on a saved draft. I returned to work on the copy 3 times but , this time only one copy stayed in drafts. So we have solved the multiple copies being saved, issue. However, I noticed 3 emails had been sent in my sent folder and my friend still received 3 copies of the email. I am out this morning but in this afternoon.
Regards
Carol

It has deleted Outlook 16! A pop up told me that my desktop icon was empty and did I want to delete it. I clicked yes. Normally this only deletes the desktop icon but it is gone from my programs too. Is there a way to reverse this as I really don't want to pay to download it again.

Are you sure you selected uninstall instead of change options to do online repair?

In search option type outlook and see if it brings outlook on your computer.

No I definitely clicked on line repair. When it finished thee was nothing to say it was completed. I clicked on the desktop icon and got the pop up I mentioned. i am trying to contact Microsoft but the support pages are useless, there doesn't seem to be a way to email them.

I will remote access and check once again.
