I have had 4 clients with this issue just over the past week.
They would click on Outlook on their Windows computer, but it would not open. If they checked the Task Manager, there was no sign of Outlook in the list of apps currently running.
So what did we do to resolve this problem in each case?
If you are a Gmail user, you will probably notice that, in the set of mailboxes you see for your Gmail account, there are mailboxes like All Mail and Important.
I regularly speak to clients who tell me that they don't want to see these extra mailboxes in their Mail, Outlook or Gmail apps on their computer or mobile devices.
Here's how to get rid of them if you don't want to see them.

On Windows, it is possible to see your iCloud Mail, Contacts and Calendars in Outlook.
This is achieved by installing the iCloud app from the Microsoft Store, and signing in to your iCloud.
Just recently though, I have been asked to assist with Outlook sync'ing issues relating to iCloud - where a sync error occurs in Outlook, and there are resulting issues with sync'ing of mail folders, Calendars and, perhaps, Contacts.
These sync issues can sometimes mean that Outlook doesn't close properly, and then won't open next time. (Note. This separate iTandCoffee article covers what to do if Outlook won't start.)
Here's what to try if this happens to you.
In a separate article, we cover how to set up an email signature in Outlook and Mail on the iPad and iPhone. (Here is that article.)
These signatures must be set up on each device - including your Mac. (The signatures do not sync - they must be separately set up per device.)
Here's how to set up and customise your signature on the Mac, and how to ensure that the signature appears every time you create a new email or reply to an email.
We have separately covered how to set up email signatures on the iPad and iPhone, and in Mail and Outlook on the Mac. For those of you who are Windows users, here are the instructions for setting up signatures in Outlook for Windows.
Once again, these instructions have been put together for for members of our iTandCoffee Club. Select the button below to view these instructions.

This topic has come up multiple times recently - how do you create a custom signature on the iPad or iPhone, in either Mail or Outlook.
In particular, how do you format the signature to include different fonts, sizes, colours, hyperlinks and an image or logo.
If you are a Microsoft 365 user (or even if you are not), you can choose to use the Outlook app on your iPhone and iPad as an alternative to the standard Mail app. Just like the Mail app, Outlook can manage all your email accounts in one place.
There are some great reasons to do this - here are just some of the reasons why I choose to use it.
If you are a Windows Outlook user AND use an iPhone/iPad, you may wish that you could see all your iCloud Contacts and Calendars in Outlook.
The good news is that there is a very easy way to make this happen.

In two different appointments this week, we covered the same questions and issues - how to add your iCloud calendars to Outlook (easily done, and covered in a separate handy hint here), and then how to manage the multiple calendars that appear in Outlook.

For those of you who are users of Microsoft's Outlook app for managing email, you may recently have received a prompt, asking if you want to switch to the New Outlook.
When I got this prompt, I did agree (at first) to switch - curious to see what this new version of Outlook looks like.
Here are two key reasons why I did not switch to the new version on my primary Mac - and why, after switching on my second Mac, I almost immediately switched back to the old version.
