EM Client has been working great for over 4 years and last week, I can longer connect to my outlook email. none of the “similar” topics or discussion suggestions have worked. Appreciate any help.
Can you look in Menu > Tools > Operations for any errors in the Log tab.
What version of eM Client are you using?
In the mean-time, one thing you can try as it is an Outlook.com account, is to remove the account from eM Client, then add it again.
There are several errors that I see. I have removed my account and added it back, no success. uninstalled eMClient and added back account. No Success either. at this point I guess I have to find a new client.

What changed last week that could have caused this?
Posting how I solved this here as nothing in this forum worked for me:
Instead of adding and Outlook.com or Office365 account with the Automatic Setup, enter account details manually (selecting EMAIL->Other), I used these settings:
- Incoming server:
- Outgoing server:
- Password: (Application password generated in your Microsoft Account)
The app password is the important part, the automatic way to add a Outlook account uses a different authentication method which seems to be unstable with eMClient, while with this method eMClient authenticates with this one off app password.
I have not had the error again since.
