Does anyone know how/where one can still purchase Outlook 2016 licenses?

Microsoft no longer sells standalone Outlook, they want users to get the entire Office suite.
You might get lucky and find it on eBay.

MS chat just told me they no longer sell it and to search online for a retailer that still sells it. Yes, let's randomly search and see what happens for corporate software. That some great support and they wonder why people go elsewhere when they completely abandon their clients. They are their own worse enemy!!!!! Not everyone can, or wants to continuously upgrade, but MS just turns their back on you if you don't. This is the quintessential example of exactly what not to do for any normal business.

So, because of the above, I'm now looking at Thunderbird. Only so much time I can put into this and fighting MS at every turn. That will be another 8 computers that will not longer use Microsoft products because of Microsoft (no other reason). One day the store has the product and the next it just disappears, like into oblivion just because a new version is now available even though that new version is incompatible with 50% of Windows machine currently in use (nothing like giving the middle finger to 50% of your customers).</end of rant>

They do have to make some $$$ since they gave away the OS for free (even that was an initial failure!). It's no longer about serving clients (which in turn generates revenues), now it's simply about money! This makes the issue of never selling prior versions of software that much more illogical. crazy.gif They could be generating revenues for software that is no longer under support. It would be a win-win for them. Talk about missing the boat and screwing their customers. shrug.gif dazed.gif

... and for those reasons you describe is why back in October 2012, before MS stopped online sales of Windows 7 and Office 2010 Pro, my users and I purchased those and have not upgraded to newer versions ever since. Virtually all new computers will not run Windows 7 because the Windows OEM's intentionally changed the video hardware so the Win7 video driver will not work. I see lots of big corps and govt still using Windows 7 Enterprise with Office 2010. I thought extended support ended for both products, but MS apparently still provides them support? What I cant explain is how MS' stock has more than doubled within the last year. Is it because of their cloud business, unstable O365, Win10, and laying off tens of thousands of support employees?...
