Plenty of errors are often faced by Outlook users that make it impossible to send/receive emails from their Outlook.
The ‘Outlook not implemented’ is yet another error that takes place when you Send/Receive, Reply, or Forward, a message. This error pops up on the screen saying: “Not Implemented”. Hence, you cannot send emails, or receive emails. So, how will you get rid of this error and start using Outlook normally back again?
In this article, we have devised a few helpful ways that you can consider for fixing this error. Before moving to the resolutions, let us first explore the common reasons behind this error.
Following are some of the most prominent reasons behind this error:
An antivirus application scans emails before sending or receiving them. This can be the reason why send/receive button hangs up and the error ‘Not implemented’ is raised.
The occurrence of the error could be due to Outlook add-ins or plug-ins which interrupt the performance and smooth working of Outlook.
The error can take place if the send or receive settings are not working due to damaged to the settings file.
If you have two MS Outlook versions on your system, then ‘not implemented’ error could occur.
The antivirus application is configured to scan any email that is sent by you or received in your inbox. This scanning process can delay or hang up the process of sending and receiving email messages. Hence, it is advised to disable antivirus.
Launch Outlook in Safe Mode to check for issues that are caused by add-ins. If Outlook works appropriately properly in Safe Mode, then disable add-ins from the Outlook.
Step 1: In Outlook, go to File > Option and select the Add-ins tab.
Step 2: Click on the Go button; a new pop-up dialog box will open.
Step 3: Disable one plug-in at a time.
Step 4: Restart the Outlook application.
Step 5: Finally, check for the issue solved or not.
Note: To open Outlook in safe mode, follow the below steps:
Step 1: Go to C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook\ location.
Step 2: Look for the SRS file.
Step 3: rename the SRS file to something like ‘Outlook.srs.old’. Once you restart the Outlook, a new SRS file will be created automatically.
Congratulations! You have successfully reset the SRS file. Proceed to check if Send/Receive is functional or not.
