Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • The conversation ID of an item is different in Outlook 2013 and Outlook Web App.
  • Assume that there is a user whose job title includes the "On Behalf Of" text. You receive an email message that is sent by a user on behalf of another user in Outlook 2013. When you forward this email message and wait several seconds, the "On Behalf Of" text in the From field of the sent email message resolves as the user who has the "On Behalf Of" text in their job title..
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • A domain account and a Microsoft Office 365 account have the same user principal name (UPN).
    • The passwords for the two accounts are different, and Active Directory Federation Services is not used in the domain.
    • You sign in to the Office 365 mailbox by using the Office 365 account.
    • You create a meeting request, and then you invite an attendee that is not migrated to the Office 365 account.
    In this situation, the free/busy information displays no information.

  • When you change the post form type for a shared folder that is cached in Outlook 2013, the change is not saved.
  • Assume that you select the Update tracking information, and then delete responses that don't contain comments check box in Outlook 2013. When you receive a response to a meeting request that makes no change to the meeting and contains no additional text, the blank item is not deleted after it is tracked.

  • When you create a meeting request in Outlook 2013, you can only receive room suggestions for the first 12 working hours from the working start time. For example, if you set the working start time to 00:00, when you create a meeting request for 12:30, you cannot receive room suggestions.
  • When you have an additional calendar on a profile in Outlook 2013, the mailbox address on the calendar label is light gray and difficult to read.

  • When you schedule a meeting in Outlook 2013, the attendees' free/busy information on the Scheduling Assistant tab is unavailable.
