    Windows Secrets email crashes Outlook 2013

    Latest email hit inbox this morning. As soon as select it in inbox list Outlook prompts it has failed and will shut down. Eventually go to delete it very quickly before shutdown again.

    Same issue trying to delete from Deleted mail.

    Definitely an issue with this one email uo to no good.

    W10 64bit Outlook 2013

    It happened to me too, in the first couple attempts. I had to shutdown Outlook which kept trying to recover itself. Once I did that, had no issues with the email.

    This is obviously an Outlook issue, not an email issue. Any email client that shuts down with a legitimate message, has a problem.

    Hey Y'all,

    I had no problem with it on Outlook 2010 running on Win 8.1 Pro.

    Have to disagree. Every other message worked fine as have earlier WS emails. Believe it was something unique to this message.

    If an email program cannot display a message and crashes, who is to blame? No program should crash when displaying a valid message. Yes, it may have been this message that made the program crash, but the crashing in itself shows the program has a bug. If the message is a "bad" one, the program should just inform it can't display it.

    Obviously, Microsoft, in their rush to push out new Operating Systems, have neglected to fix the problems that have plagued "Outlook" for years.

    I have never had any problem receiving ANY email, using Outlook Express, or even Windows Mail.
    I'm using Windows Mail, (re-activated) right now, on Windows 8.1 Pro/32. It just Works!

    I set up Windows Mail for my customers, and I never hear any complaints, unless they screw it up themselves by clicking on something they shouldn't.

    Cheers mates!

    I haven't had any problems with Outlook 2013/2015 crashing, when a Windows Secret email is downloading to my PC. I just had, other issues with Outlook 2013/2015. I am now, using Thunderbird, which is similar to Outlook, without the bloat.
