Update KB3054855 for Outlook 2013
This is a non-security update which contains 20 improvements and fixes.
Most notable new changes and fixes are:
- Adds administrative support to prevent Outlook 2013 from booting into safe mode. (This can be controlled via the Registry.)
- When you connect to a mailbox by using the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) protocol in Outlook 2013, duplicate email items are created. When you are effected by this issue, you can now have Outlook reconcile your mailbox via a Registry setting. (This will create a performance overhead so only use when affected.)
- When you set an appointment or meeting as the Working Elsewhere status for an Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) account in Outlook 2013, the appointment or meeting cannot be synchronized in Outlook Web App.
- 4 fixes for when you are connecting to an Exchange server via the MAPI over HTTP protocol.
