After delivering some updates for Outlook early in the month, Microsoft offered some new ones on Tuesday in hopes of fixing issues that it erroneously introduced.

Today, customers are reporting that there may be issues with the new patches. In one case, KB3015545 caused Outlook to crash and corrupt a user’s OST. Others have reported that the update really doesn’t seem to solve the issue – i.e., the issue still exists after installation.
One person reported that just installing KB3015545 over top of the old KB3203467 did nothing. They had to uninstall KB3203467 first and then install KB3015545.
We’ll keep reporting as more information rolls in, but the bottom line is that you should always TEST, TEST, TEST all updates – no matter how familiar you are with the supplier.
If you’ve experienced the reported problems, or have information on new issues you’re experiencing, let us know. We’re all in this together.
Are the end of month updates working for you? We’d like to know that, too.
