  • Patch lady – Icewarp warns of issues for 1809

    Posted on October 4th, 2018 at 10:41 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Patch Lady here – with another report/reinforcement of why deferring feature updates is wise.  Icewarp is an email platform that some small businesses use.  They are reporting issues with 1809 and interaction with Outlook 2010:

    Windows 10 Update Error

    Hello Susan,
    The new Windows 10 update called “October 2018 Update” (Windows 1809) has recently been released. Unfortunately, it brings a critical problem to older versions of Microsoft Outlook (2010 and older) that can negatively affect our IceWarp OutlookSync plugin and the synchronization of data may possibly end up with an error. The IceWarp support team has also received reports from our customers about smaller issues with newer versions of Outlook (particularly Outlook 2016) after updating Windows 10 to “October 2018 Update”.
    The IceWarp development team is currently working on a patch, which will address the described problems from the side of our OutlookSync plugin. We are confident this patch will be released late next week.
    In the meantime, we recommend you to postpone the “October 2018 Update” for your Windows 10 users, or roll-back the update if you are experiencing the temporary synchronization issues as mentioned previously.
    Thanks for your patience and understanding while we address these issues.
