    You can confirm if this is the issue when Outlook stops by looking at the Windows Event Viewer Application Log for Event 1000 or Event 1001, and the following event details:

      I’m having the problem with Outlook that I can open older e-mails, but NOT those received after 10:00 PM yesterday (8/11/2022 Central time). When I click on the e-mail to open it, it goes to a blank page. I have no idea what to do about this.

      Running Win 7 Home Premium SP1, updated by 0patch.
