May 1, 2018, update for Outlook 2013 (KB4018376)

Applies to: Microsoft Office 2013 Service Pack 1Outlook 2013

This article describes update 4018376 for Microsoft Outlook 2013 that was released on May 1, 2018. This update also applies to Office Home and Student 2013 RT. This update has a prerequisite.

Be aware that the update in the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2013. It doesn't apply to the Office 2013 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?)

Improvements and fixes


This update contains the following fixes and improvements:

  • Assume that Outlook 2013 is connected to an IMAP server that does not support UIDPLUS IMAP extensions. Then, you move an email message, and a network error occurs. After the network is restored and Outlook 2013 is synchronized with the server, the moved email message in the .OST file is lost. To fix this issue, install this update and then follow the steps in the "Registry information" section.

  • When you try to access the content of a public folder in Outlook 2013, Outlook 2013 may crash if it's connected by using MAPI/HTTP.

  • This update improves the Swiss translation.

  • Assume that you use Outlook 2013 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 2013. For more information, see KB 4022148.
