Hi, I removed an account from Outlook 2016 (the newest version after last updates), and wanted to re-add it. To remove I used a list "Email Accounts" placed in "Account settings". To re-add I'm using also standard option "New" placed in "Account settings" in Outlook. When I enter all the account data like IMAP, SMTP server address, username and password, it starts to create the account, even it sends a test e-mail and physically creates OST file on HDD. But suddenly I see a message:
Something went wrong.
We couldn't create the Outlook data file. Make sure the disk you're saving to isn't full or write protected and that the file isn't being used.
Of course I have plenty of sapce on my HDD, around 90 GBs of free space. Also I have access to the Outlook directory at c:\Users\Marcin\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\ . I gave an extra full write+read rights to user "Everyone" on that folder. That didn't help. Also I tried to run Outlook as Administrator.
Everytime I try to add the account, it creates an OST file, names it with the following number like now I have 7 OST files in c:\Users\Marcin\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\ named:
*** Email address is removed for privacy ***, *** Email address is removed for privacy ***(1).ost, *** Email address is removed for privacy ***(2).ost, *** Email address is removed for privacy ***(3).ost, *** Email address is removed for privacy ***(4).ost, *** Email address is removed for privacy ***(5).ost, ..., and so on. And If I remove them, they all are recreated when restarting Outlook. When I'm tryding to remove them from Outlook from tab "DataFiles" in "Account settings" it says that "this data file is associated with a mail account. To remove it use the Email tab", but in the Email tab I don't see this account.
* Windows 10 Pro - Polish language version, last after updates
* MS Office 2016 - English language version, last after updates
Any ideas how I can solve this? Last days I've made and update of Office (it showed me that there are updates and I agreed). Maybe that is the reason because I added all my mail accounts to Outlook 1 month ago and it worked fine. Thanks in advance!
