Outlook Says Disconnected and Trying to Connect. Sounds Familiar?
Many people from organizations all over the world use Microsoft Outlook as their default email client on Windows. It’s a well known tool that has been constantly improved and now part of the Office 365 collaboration suite. It’s great as long as it’s working properly. But, for many users Outlook seems to be disconnecting in the worst possible moments.
The reason for your Outlook disconnects is most likely a poor connection to the Internet. You can try to reconnect it, but that won’t solve the problem of being disconnected again… and again. You need a fast, stable and secure connection for your Outlook. Read below how to get that for you and your team members.
Outlook Disconnected from Exchange – Why That Happens
Outlook disconnected – how to reconnect? That’s a question many people ask, but unfortunately they only think of a quick solution to patch things. Here’s what I mean.
The most common cause of disconnected Outlook is actually the Internet you’re using. When you have a slow or unreliable Internet connection, Outlook isn’t able to work properly. Sometimes, you may not even realize that your Outlook is disconnected until you check the status bar or try and use the service.
Your device is exchanging a complex set of data packets with the Microsoft email servers. If your Wi-Fi connection has a momentary blip or your cellular connection fluctuates, some of the flow of those packets gets interrupted. It can take a few moments for the data to catch up.
This results in Outlook looking disconnected and you not being to send or receive emails.

As mentioned above, Outlook is dependent on how stable your Internet connection is. But before you blame it on your Wi-Fi – check if you’ve set your Outlook to work in offline mode – see here.
If that’s not the issue, then you have to look at your Internet connection. At this time, whether you’re using a laptop, a desktop computer or a mobile device, it only uses one connection at a time. Even though you may be connected to both WiFi and cellular data on your smartphone, it’ll use only one of them.
