Microsoft used to be at the top of the game with email programs. These days, with security concerns, email hosts are now requiring special app passwords to be applied to Microsoft Outlook 2016 in order to gain access to their servers. Other email programs do not require this. Will Microsoft fix this? It is a huge inconvenience to users. I am familiar with the Outlook format and would prefer to use it, however, I have now switched to another email program. Just another let-down for Microsoft.
