I sometimes see announcements about new features being added or fixes being made to Office 2016. When I compared my build number of Outlook 2016 to the one of a friend, I saw that his was newer.
I chose File-Office 2016 has multiple update channels.
Before an update is released to the Semi-annual Channel, it is being held in the Semi-annual Channel (Targeted) for 4 months which itself is at least 2 months behind the Monthly Channel.
The emails in Inbox do not load into Outlook while all of the emails I have placed in folders do.Can someone tell me what I need to do to get my new messages to load into Outlook Inbox.The Monthly Channel (Targeted) and Office Insider Channel releases give you early access to changes and new features that will most likely make it into the Monthly Channel release in about 1 or 2 months time.The Monthly Channel (Targeted) gets about 2 releases per month and are quite stable.If you don’t have this section at all, you are using an MSI-based installation.
The Monthly Channel is the official up-to-date stable release of Office 365.
These include Office Home & Student 2016, Office Home & Business 2016 and Office Professional 2016 as well as the standalone applications of Word, Excel, Power Point, Outlook, Publisher and Access.
Updates are being released monthly via the same way as Office 365 installations (so not via Windows Update) but these usually only contain fixes and not new features that are being made to Office 2016 users that are using it as part of an Office 365 subscription.
If I click the "Send/Receive" button it downloads the new emails but, it is no practical thing to do.
My emails come in through Web.com's webmail which I just added to Outlook 2016.
The Monthly Channel (Targeted) releases can be best compared with the Release Preview Ring and for Office Insider the Windows Insider Slow Ring is a closer match.
