The Outlook Profile Folder's content can become corrupted, resulting in the error 'Outlook account settings out of date.' This problem can be resolved by cleaning up the profile folder. Follow the steps below to get started:

  1. Right-click the Windows icon on your taskbar's far left and select 'File Explorer.' You may also open File Explorer by pressing Win+E on your keyboard.
  2. Paste 'percent APPDATA percent MicrosoftProtect' into the top address bar and hit Enter.
  3. This will open the Microsoft Outlook profile folder for you.
  4. Copy and paste your profile folder to a new location, such as your Desktop or Documents folder, to create a backup.
  5. Delete the Protect folder once the backup has been completed.
  6. Restart your machine and then reopen Outlook.
