    Free Office 365 is online only.

    Previous version should also be available but file association points to new version.

    New Update rolled through.

    Everything is back to being right.

    Yes, there was a reason I stopped using it. I think I changed to FreeEx or something with a similar name. I do use MP3Tag and donated to the developer. That is an awesome program.

    I'm surprised more people don't stick to the business cycle of updates. I'm perfectly fine waiting a few months so they can iron out the kinks.

    I guess itís because people are keen to get new features and want the latest security patches.

    Also, Iíve never heard of this business cycle, and Iím guessing most people havenít either. How the bloody hell do you switch over to it?

    You still get security patches and drivers, just new features are delayed until they feel it's safe to push out to business customers.

    I forget what it's called currently, I think they changed the name to "Semi Annual" or something.

    The thing is, we're not using the Free Online version. Very strange.

    And here's another oddity, just discovered today: I have several subfolders under my Inbox in Outlook. Today I went into a folder for "Joe Smith", which should contain all emails from Joe Smith that I previously dragged there.

    Viewing all only shows me emails through October of last year. However, searching for word in that folder showed even older emails from February and April of last year that previously weren't visible while looking at the entire folder with no search terms.

    I can live with all these strange things, but I can't help but notice that none of these things used to be a problem and now they are.

    Hey Microsoft, if things ain't broke, don't fix 'em!.

    It's possible that standard installation have left offline stuff out.

    I don't use Outlook so I'm not sure but MS email programs have typically had external indexes.
    Means that file can be there but is not found because it's excluded from the index.
    It's also possible that whole directories are missing.
