    Its seroiusly not worth stressing over the little things. Being happy is too important and you cant let negativity poison the body. When you keep a positive outlook, problems become challenges, and it is easier to fight through them when you arent moping around.

    @MicrosoftHelps I have gmail, aol, four Outllok/hotmail, and two OWA accounts. All of them have the same issue. No issues when using outlook via Windows 10 PCs, just the Android App on my phone. I never had any issues until the app was updated in October.

  • zXxQuaDxXz
    QuaD (@zXxQuaDxXz) reported

    @MicrosoftHelps The issue is that the Outlook app takes minutes to load menus, emails, and calendar. Going from email to email takes minutes. It's faster to just use OWA via a browser. The application is basically unusable. Uninstall/reinstall didn't fix it, the last four updates didn't fix it.
