Hi Dylan,

We have a vast amount of users who are getting this problem with Reckon Accounts and Outlook 2016. This is actually due to a compatibility issue where our 2015 software did not have the chance to test Outlook 2016. To give you a general timeline of the softwares being released; Reckon Accounts 2015 was released in April 2015 and Outlook 2016 was released roughly 3 months ago (Sep/Oct). 

As you can see our developers were not provided with the chance of getting our software compatible and as a result there are a few workarounds being passed around in our call centre.

  1. You can PDF your document and attach it to your email manually. If you are running a lower version than premier you may need to download a 3rd party PDF (virtual printer) that saves to PDF when you print to it.
  2. You can revert back to Outlook 2013 temporarily (Microsoft will allow this but you will need to ask them about it)
  3. Close Reckon, reopen Reckon and email out again. Rinse and repeat these steps. 

  • Until we release Reckon Accounts 2016 we are not officially compatible with Outlook 2016 and only documented on paper to be compatible with Outlook 2013 and below.
  • Reckon developers are continually testing to see if there are any solid workarounds to pass around but not that I know of right now.

Hope this helps,
Alex

I've been having this problem on Windows 7 & using 2013 Outlook for years.

We pay all this Money to Reckon & they do nothing about it.

Its NEVER their Fault. I just want to be able to use ALL the program that I have PAID for instead of having to do things twice.

Who covers my wages for having to do things the Hard way?????

Just fix the Problems already!!!!!!!

Hi Sue - I get error messages when emailing out payslips - it will email one, then several error messages before shutting down. I am really tired of re-starting, and I am wasting a lot of time that I need to be investing elsewhere. I have tried all the suggestions, I live in hope that it is important enough an issue for Reckon to address and remedy.
Yoga Jo and Sue...

The combination of three things needs to be clear, to help each person.

1)  the operating system  (ie:  Win7  or 8 or 10?)
     and whether 32-bit or 64bit version
2)  the Reckon product  (ie:  RA2013  or RA 2015?)
3)  the version of MS Office (ie:  outlook 2013 or 2016?)
4)  Whether there are legacy copies of old PDF drivers in existence


Dylan...

It will be confusing to be offering help on your two issues at the same time as Alex is trying to resolve this forum topic, which relates to Dylan who we understand is using:

1)  unknown O/S  
2)  Reckon Accounts 2015  (but not sure what product:  Premier, Plus ???)
3)  and MS Office 2016.
4)  unknown PDF driver running

If each person could fill in the missing info, then perhaps three separate discussions could ensue.




Every combination needs careful attention to how it is installed, permissions setup and options to tick, in order to achieve the desired solution.

Hi Gary;

1) Windows 8.1 - 64 Bit
2) Reckon Accounts Plus 2015 Annual Licence
3) MS Office 16.0.6366.2036 Outlook 2016
4) PDF Nitro Pro 10 ( I have tried the options with this disabled with the same result)

I have been searching for a resolution - this seems to be a common problem whichever combination of operating system and version of Reckon.
Yoga Jo

So it looks like you may be very similar to Dylan, depending on HIS operating system.   But in in Sue's case, where she refers to years ago on WIn7, and I'd have to assume an equally older version of Reckon Accounts,  there are different approaches involved in this seemingly similar topic.

Yoga Jo.  In your specific situation ONLY,  you do mention success sending ONE email.  Have you set the PREFERENCES in RA2015  for:
ONLINE -->  Company -->  Tick:  if sending more than one email.


Dylan - what operating system are you running with this specific forum topic?

Sue:  what is your latest combination of O/S, Office, RA, PDF?

There are subtle differences to how to achieve a solution, depending on the combinations of above, and that is why I sought the extra info.  SOme relate to the presence of older PDF or Office hangovers,  whilst others relate to dealing with the changes to permissions/compatibility requirements when running newer O/S with older APPS.  And then there are some OPTIONS/PREFERENCES/defaults that need checking, in other combinations.

And yes,  there are some combinations that simply don't work, because of the different generations (years) involved.

Solved my problem - I uninstalled outlook 16 and reinstalled outlook 13 - I was going to uninstall Recon Accounts Plus 2015 and reinstall it however it gave me the option to fix the program - emails are sending ok - YAY - Make sure you backup before you repair
