I don’t see AccountCheck in Outlook after installing it. Why?

Restart Outlook. Make sure you shutdown Outlook completely during the restart. (Use the Task Manager to verify that Outlook is not running).

If the above does not help, please verify that the Apply macro security settings to installed add-ins option is OFF. If that option is checked, uncheck it and restart Outlook. It is located under:

  • Outlook 2010, 2013, 2016: File -> Options -> Trust Center -> Trust Center Settings -> Macro Settings.

If the above does not help, please try the steps listed in the next question.

AccountCheck has disappeared from my outlook. How do I get it back?

Please check the following location:

If you see AccountCheck on that list, select it and click Enable. Then restart Outlook.

If the above does not help, please verify that the Apply macro security settings to installed add-ins option is OFF. If that option is checked, uncheck it and restart Outlook. It is located under:

  • File -> Options -> Trust Center -> Trust Center Settings -> Macro Settings.

If the above does not help, please try the steps listed in the next question.

Note

If this happens to you repeatedly, there is likely an issue with Outlook itself. By far, the most common reason for this is a corrupted PST/OST file. You will find a solution for this and other potential reasons in this article. Please run scanpst on all your PST/OST files. Please note that you have to run scanpst repeatedly on every PST/OST file, until it tells you that there are no more errors in the file.
