Windows update causing email problem in Outlook


M

mick

Just installed February's updates, about 14 of them, 5 Office 2010 and
9 Windows 7.
One has caused a problem with Send & Receive in Outlook.
Outlook is saying it has the wrong certificate to connect to the server
so will not download emails.
I have done a system restore and everything is back to normal and
working ok. So it looks like I will have to install each update
individually to find the one causing the problem, UNLESS someone knows
which one it is to save me the hassle:)

For an update that contains stability and performance improvements, it
doesn't work very well.
I don't use Office 2010 so I can't really help you there.
Don't install that update, maybe MS will have an update to the update
soon or not. :)

Yes, it's consigned to the bin for now.

Could be the update is working perfectly well and protecting the
system from using a server with an invalid security certificate.
That would be a good thing, even if it appears bad to someone
who can't get their email.
The solution could be to update the certificates on the PC (usually
an *optional* windows update) or contact the email provider and
tell them to get their finger out and fix the security certificate
on their server!

Well, all I can say is that, it won't be the first or last time that MS
as screwed up an update.

I'm with you there of course! Unavoidable though unless an OS is
run on identical locked-down hardware which only runs approved
apps which are never updated and access is only allowed to approved
websites which are never allowed to be changed.
Not gonna happen. I hope.

"server with an invalid security certificate"

I'm beginning to see this more often.
Government servers with expired certificates
Add related servers
Occasional misc. servers.

If you remember, there was a whole bunch of certificates issued by a
dubious authority, and the hackers had a field day!
