On May 19th, following the latest Security Update of macOS Catalina 10.15.7 and of Outlook for Mac to 16.62 (22051800) the application is not launching. The icon jumps up and down once in the Dock but the application does not start. Some seconds later, a crash report appears:

As I cannot launch the application, I cannot access the in-app technical support, that over the years in my Beta Channel experience have proved to be very quick and responsive. Is there a way of reaching this highly responsive team through other means? I do have access to my mail accounts and the their current inboxes but I have lost access to my stored mail messages.
Similar problems have been reported by others. All have advised to the standard suggestions.
A couple of years back, a similar problem had appeared that was solved by an update that was done in a very short time.
Could you please provide a direct to the in-app support team?

Following today's (May 24th) update on the Beta Channel to 16.62 (22052300), I was able to launch Outlook without any incident.
Thanks and regards,

Today Outlook suddenly forced me into the New Outlook interface, but it doesn't load any emails.
It's just stuck at the loading... screen.
What do I do?
