Issues that this update fixes

  • Assume that you use Outlook to connect to a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 mailbox. Additionally, you installed the Outlook 2013 November 2013 security update. When you try to configure the Automatic Replies (Out of Office) feature, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
    Your automatic reply settings cannot be displayed because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later.
    Additionally, you cannot retrieve Free/Busy data for calendar scheduling, and add-ins that use the Account.SmtpAddress property no longer work. This occurs because Autodiscover fails for Exchange 2007 configurations.
  • After you install the November 12, 2013 security update for Outlook 2013 or the October 2013 cumulative update, when you start Outlook, Outlook crashes.
