Apple’s latest version iOS 11 fails to connect to the Microsoft Office and Exchange mailboxes, which is rather irritating for anyone working with Windows Operating System.
According to reports, iOS 11 carries a bug, which leaves users locked out of Microsoft Office 365, Outlook.com and Exchange inboxes. The mobile OS pops up an alert that displays “Cannot Send Mail. The message was rejected by the server.”,
“If your email account is hosted by Microsoft on Outlook.com or Office 365, or an Exchange Server 2016 running on Windows Server 2016, you might see this error message when you try to send an email with iOS 11: ‘Cannot Send Mail. The message was rejected by the server’,” the owner of ClarisWorks alleged.
“Apple is working closely with Microsoft to resolve the issue and will release a fix soon in an upcoming software update.”
Apple iOS 11 Update
Apple hasn’t made the iOS 11 update mandatory. However, all those who are waiting for a new handset on Friday will have no choice but to use the latest upgrade of the operating system. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will release on Friday, September 22.
Ever since its September 19 release, this bug has been a major problem for iOS 11. Some of the potential, alarming pitfalls of Apple’s latest upgrade include the following details: you won’t be able to run your older 32-bit-only apps. Also, you won’t completely be able to turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, as both these units are required for file and smartwatch synchronization.
Furthermore, the update also provides some new features. The iOS 11 update has some major security bug fixes, however, none of them is grave. These pitfalls can be used to crash the software and perform cross-site scripting and address bar spoofing. So, you just have two choices now: if you update now, you won’t be able to access Outlook and Exchange and have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth stuck on. And if you don’t upgrade, you won’t be able to avail the security fixes.
