* Outlook 2016 incompatibility with Exchange 2007
Outlook users should check with their local IT support staff before upgrading to Office 2016 since Outlook 2016 won't connect to Exchange 2007 using Exchange services. If you need to access mail on Exchange 2007 you will need to reinstall a previous version of Office i.e. Office 2013 - this is permitted under the terms of the EES Agreement.

UAS staff should not download Office 2016 (Windows or Mac OS) to institutionally-managed PCs  at this time.
