Working in offline mode is a choice. Returning to an online mode is simple.
• In Outlook choose Work Offline on the Send/Receive tab to reconnect.
• If the background of the button is shaded (as shown in the screenshot you shared), you’re not connected. But if it is not shaded, then you are connected or working online.
• If your Internet connection is fine, then there could be some problem with the email server.

If you are using Microsoft Office Outlook, the offline mode is automatic. The email client shifts to this mode automatically when your computer disconnects from the internet. But when your internet connection goes back online, Microsoft Office Outlook should automatically go back to online mode. Now, if you want to stay or keep working in offline mode even if your internet connection is working, click “Send/Receive” then select “Work Offline.”

To shift between online and offline modes, just check this button. If “Work Offline” is highlighted, it means Microsoft Office Outlook is running in offline mode. But if this option is not highlighted, it means Microsoft Office Outlook is running in normal mode or online mode. On the other hand, if Microsoft Office Outlook does not go back to online mode, try troubleshooting your connection.

Try disconnecting the network cable from the network port at the back of your CPU then plug it back in. If this doesn’t work, disconnect the other end of the cable from the Wi-Fi router then connect it back. If this doesn’t work, try restarting the Wi-Fi router.

If the router has a power button, press it to turn it off then unplug it from the power for about twenty (20) seconds. Press any button on the router to discharge any leftover power or to power cycle. After this, plug the router back to the power and turn it on.

When the router is ready, open your web browser and visit a website then try clicking some links. Verify that your internet connection is working. Once you verify, restart Microsoft Office Outlook then see if it works. If the problem continues, uninstall and reinstall it.
