Microsoft is rolling out an Outlook update to fix a strange bug for Microsoft 365 users that’s causing email text to disappear as it’s typed and incoming messages to show up blank. In other words: a productivity-killing nightmare, whether you rely on Outlook for work or for fun.
While Microsoft says the bug is confined to the Outlook desktop client, some users have also reported issues with blank messages and disappearing text on the web and mobile versions. Luckily, Microsoft’s says it identified the issue and it released a patch early Wednesday morning to fix it. According to the latest Microsoft 365 service bulletin, ”the fix has been applied to all affected environments,” and the patch is available now for everyone.
Some Outlook users may already have the patch installed thanks to automatic updates, but you can check for and install the patch manually:
Open the Outlook app.
Go to File > Office Account > Product Information
Select Update Options > Update Now.
Let the update install. You’ll see a “You’re up to date!” message when it’s done.
Close all other Microsoft 365 apps, then restart Outlook.
You can also install the patch through the Microsoft store on Windows 10:
Close all Microsoft 365 apps
Open the Microsoft Store app on your PC.
Click on the “...” icon in the upper right, then click “Downloads and Updates.”
Click “Get Updates” to download and install all software updates, or scroll through the “Pending Updates” list and click “Install” next to Microsoft 365 and/or Outlook.
