The following article demonstrates how to find out what version of Microsoft Outlook you are using. As different versions of Outlook have different settings and menus, being aware of which version of Outlook you are running will enable you to determine which support articles are relevant to you.
Finding out which version of Outlook you are running depends on if you have “Help” from the menu bar.
If “Help” is available from the Menu bar:
Click “Help” and then “About Microsoft Office Outlook”.
Under the “About Microsoft Office Outlook” dialogue box it will display the version of Outlook.
This will work for Outlook 2003, Outlook 2007 and Outlook Express. Please be advised that Outlook Express is no longer supported by Microsoft, and we do not have support articles for it.
If “Help” is NOT available from the Menu bar:
Click on “File” and then “Help”.
From under “Help” it will display which version of Outlook you are using. This will work for Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013.
For versions of Outlook including 2016 and Office 365 you will go to the File menu as before and then select office account
After selecting office account, select Update Options and your version number will be listed in Blue Text.
If you are using a Mac:
You are using Outlook 2011.
