Microsoft set deadline for 365 services upgrade.

Posted 06 September 2021 by Laura

Microsoft customers running older versions of Outlook have until 1st November 2021 to upgrade – which we all know will feel like next week! Customers who miss the deadline will lose access to all Microsoft and Office 365 services.

After November 1, 2021, only Outlook 2013 Service Pack 1 (with latest fixes) and later will be able to connect to Microsoft 365 services. It’s worth noting here that Outlook 2007, 2010, and Office 2013 versions earlier than 15.0.4971.1000 aren’t supported now…just in case anyone’s still using them!

It’s important to stay on top of tech upgrades:

  • Security fixes will protect your devices against known vulnerabilities
  • Reliability – over the last five years Microsoft eliminated 75% of crashes in Outlook
  • Updated versions have the best new features designed to make your life easier
