    Going to try the repair first as the user is the CEO and she has five mailboxes and multiple folders. A reinstall is the last and least favorable option.
    I know what you mean. FYI I just upgraded from Office 2013 to Office 2016. I had to uninstall 2013 first and assumed I would have to reenter my email accounts into Outlook, but I was pleasantly surprised when I started Outlook 2016 and everything was there as before.

    I had a similar issues with JPG files.

    Adding this registry key from an Administrative Command prompt stopped Outlook 2016 from prompting repeatedly for an app to open JPG files when Photo Viewer was set as the default:
    REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer /v NoNewAppAlert /t REG_DWORD /d 1

    One could also edit the registry manually, and there is a Group Policy setting for this that has the same effect.

    SEE: https://www.howtogeek.com/260420/how-to-disable-the-new-app-installed-notification-in-windows-8-and-10/ - appears unrelated but it works.
