Support for the Office 2013 versions of Office 365 has ended and are no longer being offered for download in the download sections of Office 365 Home and Office 365 for Business.
If you still have it installed, you will receive Security Updates until April 10, 2023.
Upgrading to Office 2016 is highly recommended and also already part of your Office 365 subscription. However, common reasons why you might still need Office/Outlook 2013 are;
- You are connecting to Exchange 2007.
- Your company hasn’t properly published Autodiscover in their Exchange 2010, 2013 or 2016 environment so you must resort to a manual configuration which isn’t supported in Outlook 2016.
- You are using Business Contact Manager 2013 and are not yet ready to use Outlook Customer Manager or migrate to another CRM solution.
- You have a dependency on some other software that isn’t yet compatible with Office 2016.
When you still need to (re-)install Office 2013 as part of Office 365 for whatever reason, you can still download it by using a direct link or by using the Office 2013 Deployment Tool.
