    OK, now I remember why I do NOT use Outlook at all. It is horrible to use, configure and it crashes every now and then (did it twice already while I was moving my inbox, that I could not even move as I thought it would, but had to back up the old file and then create the new file elsewhere and finally import the exported data, which ended up in a bunch of duplicate mail). Making backups is also horrible and very time consuming. There is absolutely no way to automate making backups properly and only way is to schedule archiving of mail, which is NOT the same thing.

    CONCLUSION: NOPE, I will not dig any deeper into this topic. Sorry for the inconvenience and for raising any false hopes.

    If someone want's to dig into this issue, feel free to take over. I give up, and never touch Outlook again.

    P.S. I use eMClient, it's simple and it's free for using of up to 2 email accounts (but the free version is only for personal use, not commercial use) and everything works as it should.

    Sounds like a stability problem on your end. Outlook works like a charm and is the industry standard for mail clients.

    Making backups of Outlook is simple, although it should be rarely needed. It's 2018, and if you aren't using a hosted e-mail account, you're missing out. If you still use POP3 (why?), all you need to do is maintain a copy of the .pst file. Any sync app should be able to do that for you.

    That's the thing Outlook 365 uses ost files, and that has to be manually exported to pst within Outlook. There's currently nothing standard about Outlook except for Microsoft standard that doesn't even include a simple thing like scheduled backups of my mail.

    I do daily backups of my mailboxes, account settings, everything, and I delete all mail that are not important. When I need to restore the boxes, I push 1 button (well maybe 3) and, VOILA, everything is restored. Try doing that with Outlook.

    About POP3...I've never used that protocol and never will.

    So you're saying that even if my computers had been running stable for all my apps, I have configured something wrong so Outlook fails. Here's a news flash. Outlook has always behaved like this on all my computers for the past 20 years. And it seems the trend hasn't changed the slightest.

    Making backups is essential for important stuff and that includes e-mail

    @Caledon Ken
    Thanks for those links

    I found those too. But I think creating Junction points is absolutely the best way to do all this. Then Outlook can keep doing what it always does and does not even know where the data is physically located. It is always dangerous to go edit the registry by hand if one does not know what one is doing.

    Hope these links solved the OPs issues.

    I moved my pst and operate no issues. I didn't move my .ost but they are just really my inbox.

    Agree registry changes are last resort.

    That's the point. It's 2018. Nothing needs to be backed up in Outlook, or at least it shouldn't be configured that way. I use only Outlook and both of my e-mail accounts are Exchange. Not one bit of data needs to be backed up. If I decided to archive anything to an offline .pst file, then I'd only need to back up that one file.

    The only accounts I don't use Outlook for are Gmail.

    I can't speak to Finland, but for every other country I've dealt with in my 22 years of corporate IT experience, Outlook is the standard e-mail client. You, as one person, aren't a legitimate sample size. If Outlook had issues itself, it wouldn't be the standard. Everyone would encounter the same issues.

    So what do you do if the Exchange server gets screwed up and your inbox file gets corrupted?

    Not likely at all, but in the event it does, whoever is managing the Exchange server would have backups. My personal account is through Office 365 and my corporate account is through our company Exchange servers...which are backed up.

    The end user doesn't need to back up anything on the client side.
