News Outlook 2013 Update for November 2014

A Rollup Update has been released for Outlook 2013. This is a non-security update which contains the latest stability and performance improvements.

Even though only 2 improvements and fixes are mentioned in the change log provided, it does also contain the 16 fixes from Hotfix KB2889951.

The new fixes are:

  • Outlook shows certificate errors for certain configurations when it tries to obtain Exchange settings by using AutoDiscover. The fix is to silently fail the connection to these servers instead of displaying the certificate error prompt.
  • Outlook may be unable to download the Offline Address Book (OAB) from the Exchange Server. The OAB Download thread runs in a loop unable to authenticate. This can prevent email from synchronizing, especially when you have multiple accounts all trying to download an OAB at the same time. This fix also requires Office update KB2899493 which itself also includes the Outlook fixes of Hotfix KB2889953.
