Outlook is not updating automatically

Microsoft Auto Update makes sure your copy of Office will always be up-to-date with the latest security fixes and improvements.

If you are an Office 365 subscriber, you'll also receive the newest features and tools.

I've tried going to notifications and switching on some of the notification options but I still cannot get it to work. Also, when I got my i Phone 5s last year, I loaded my apps and straight away I started to get notifications on the locked screen. One thing to check would be your mail settings under "mail, calendars and contacts".

For example, 'apps gone free' would say 'your new apps gone free are ready' at about 6 PM every evening and my BBC news app would put messages on the screen and make the BBC news sound when a new piece of news came out, that no longer happens on my i Phone 6, although I believe I still have the same settings as on the i Phone 5s. I believe that is where you will find the "fetch new mail" option, although it may say something else.

Whenever any syncing issues are experienced, it is to update your Outlook Mail app and Windows 10.

At times, such issues are addressed in the cumulative updates that are rolled out by Microsoft hence make sure that you have all the latest version of the OS and the Mail app installed.

Well, this is temporary as the account might be under some syncing operation at that time which prevents you from accessing the sync settings for security reasons.

You can retry after some time when the option is back in play.

Choose the account for which you want to synchronize. Now, it should take some time to get the older content from the email servers and syncing the same in your registered mail account in Outlook Mail app.

Sometimes, you are not able to select the option as it gets grayed out.

For best results, don't check for new mail more frequently than about 8 - 10 minutes.

Checking too frequently (either automatically or manually) can cause Outlook to hang on the process and you will not be able to send or receive mail until you restart Outlook.

Sorry I can't be of any more help to you, but I've never encountered that particular problem.
