Outlook 365-Creating a meeting and having a blank outlook page open up.

Tanya De Lange 5 Reputation points

I am experiencing the following issue, this is very annoying.

So every time I enter my calendar portion of outlook 365 and try to do anything albeit a new meeting/updating a Calander invite/typing within the meeting to indicate what the meeting would be about a blank web page opens. The frustrating part is as the new blank window pops up your kicked out of the program and you have to click to continue what you are doing and this can happen multiple times just trying to type one word, sometimes it's for each letter or a few words. This is extremely frustrating. Is there any solution for this as yet?

This only started occurring for me in October last year when the changes started being implemented, so I am thinking this is just a bug that needs to be sorted out. I just don't understand why it is taking so long.

    Hi @Tanya De Lange ,

    What detailed version of Outlook are you using? (File > Office Account > About Outlook)

    Is OWA disabled in your organization?

    According to my search, I have found that it only affects those 365 organizations that have Resources configured.

    An update to Semi-Annual Enterprise Channel seems to fix this issue:


    For more information about changing the 365 Channel, refer to this article:
