This morning, I am not able to send new emails form outlook 365 on a Mac.  I can type a message and put in a recipient but the Send button stays greyed out.  I have quit and relaunched Outlook and am still having the issue.  Any advice on how to resolve?  

 

I am able to create and send through the Outlook app on my phone and I am able to reply and forward form my computer.  I just cannot create new messages form my computer.

Hiya

I have a similar problem and was hoping to find some answers! Have you resolved your problem yet?

Thanks

I'm having a similar issue. The Send button and most of the formatting buttons

greyed out. The only way to send is to press Command-Enter on my keyboard. Other than that, I can only attach files, photos and signatures. All other options have been disabled. Can someone please let us know how to fix this? I'm using Office 365 for Mac (Microsoft Outlook version 16.36) and Mac OS Mojave (10.14.6).

I am having the same issue when I have a zoom invite ready to send.  The send button is greyed out. 

I see that there was a recent FIX that reportedly took care of the issue, but it is not fixed for me.  I have to hit exit out of the invite, receive the notice "this message has not been sent, would you like to send it now" and say send at this point in order for it to work.
