May 1, 2018, update for Outlook 2016 (KB4018372)

Applies to: Outlook 2016

This article describes update 4018372 for Microsoft Outlook 2016 that was released on May 1, 2018. This update has a prerequisite.

Be aware that the update on the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2016. It doesn't apply to the Office 2016 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?)

Improvements and fixes


This update contains the following improvements and fixes:

  • When you use a quick step to create a task in a secondary mailbox, the task is saved to the primary mailbox and the owner is also set to the user of the primary mailbox.

  • After you migrate mailboxes from on-premise to Office 365 environment, you can log on but cannot send mails.

  • When you try to access the content of a public folder in Outlook 2016, Outlook 2016 may crash if Outlook 2016 is connected by using MAPI/HTTP.

  • When a sender that is outside your organization sends an email message that has attachments to an Office 365 Modern Group, the attachments don't show in the message even though a paperclip icon displays in the message list.

  • The Outlook client may create duplicate folders for some special folders that are already in the server mailbox.

  • If you have configured an Outlook profile with multiple accounts and with the option to digitally sign email messages that are sent from them, when you open a previously saved draft email message and send it, Outlook 2016 may use the incorrect account certificate to digitally sign the message.

  • This update enables Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm with a 256-bit key length as a supported scheme when Outlook has enabled Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Mode.

  • This update improves the Swiss translation.

  • This update fixes the truncation issue in the dialog box when you add a public folder for the German version.

  • Assume that you use Outlook 2016 for some time. Even if you have a reasonable memory usage, the contiguous free memory space is exhausted. This results in fragmented and non-rendering UI. This update enables the Large Address Aware (LAA) state for the 32-bit version of Outlook 2016. See KB4022148 for details.
