Hello

How it is possible that Outlook2013 is still able to conenct to office365?

Hi @MarcelMikusik, great question. As of October 13, 2020, connectivity to Office 365 services like Exchange online, SharePoint online, and OneDrive are no longer supported for Office versions that are out of mainstream support, which includes Outlook 2013. You can read more details in this announcement.

 

To keep that connectivity to Office 365 services, you'll want to either:

  1. Switch to Microsoft 365, which has no end date for connectivity to Office 365 services
  2. Or switch to Office 2019, which will stay in mainstream support and connected to Office 365 services until October 2023.

Here's more information about how to upgrade your Office 2013.
