Large Address Aware support in Outlook 2016 may affect some COM add-insQ4 CY2017

Build 16.0.8528.2147 (Version 1709) of the 32-bit version of Outlook 2016 for Windows has been updated to be Large Address Aware (LAA). This increases the maximum address space available to Outlook from 2 GB to 4 GB when it is running on a 64-bit version of Windows. This is key to improved graphics rendering in Outlook when using newer displays that support higher screen resolutions. While LAA Outlook has been extensively tested, there is the possibility that some third-party or in-house developed Outlook COM Add-ins may experience issues with the change. Only 32-bit, 1709 versions of Outlook 2016 or later and running on a 64-bit version of Windows may be impacted. For details refer to https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Large-Address-Aware-in-Outlook-2016-ea0913e4-2917-4456-b0ea-935dbd57ef02?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US - More Information
