However, some reports indicate that this button Troubleshooting does not work for some users. In that case, here are some things you might want to try.

1] Restart your computer and log in with your Microsoft account to see if notifications no longer appear.

2] Have you changed your Microsoft online account settings? You may have changed your password. If so, your email application may want to synchronize its settings with Outlook. You must ensure that your current password is the same on the web, in the email application and in Outlook when you use it.

3] Check the time on your Windows computer. Open Control Panel > Clock, Language and Region > Date and Time > Internet Time. Disable Synchronize with an Internet time server and manually set the system time. Let’s see if it helps.
