Remove other accounts

Many Outlook users have multiple accounts, which can sometimes lead to problems with the app. If you are using Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo Mail, etc., together, it is better to remove other accounts and check if the problem remains or not. Although multiple accounts should not create issues on paper, it does when Outlook cannot fetch everything correctly.

Open the Outlook app, click the File option in the top menu bar, then click Account Settings. Select Account Settings from the list.

The Outlook app opens a list of accounts you have added. To remove an account, choose it and click the Remove button.

Next, restart the Outlook app and check if you can schedule a meeting or not.

Log out and log in again

If you’ve recently bought a Microsoft 365 subscription, Outlook may not be able to detect it. In this case, it’s best to log out of your account and log back in.

Although there is no direct option to change your profile like in the Outlook web version, you can use two different methods. One, you can change the profile and select it again. Two, you can remove your account and add it again.

To begin, open the Outlook app and click the File tab. Then click the Account Settings option.

Following that, select the Change Profile option and click the OK button to restart Outlook and change the profile.

You can remove your account by clicking the Account Settings option from the list, selecting your account, and clicking the Remove button.
