It happens to all of us, we are in a need to email or reply to an important Imageoffice conversation, respond to friends mail, email across the recent pics to your relatives and suddenly find that Microsoft Outlook is not opening and even not responding the way it was.

Step 5: If you are receiving error messages like

There could be chance that your Microsoft Outlook client does not have a default gateway configured. Configure your email client with default gateway.
