Outlook Office365 Work Account Error 0xCAA70007

Outlook 365 0xCAA70007 error message connecting to onmicrosoft Office365 account: You'll need the internet for this 0xCAA70007


I'm facing an issue with accessing my onmicrosoft Office365 account with outlook. Whenever I open outlook in windows it shows the prompt "You''ll need the internet for this". The message says we couldn't connect to one of the services we need you sign you in. Please check your connection and try again.
The error code is - 0xCAA70007
The outlook works fine in the browser and internet connection is working.
I tried repairing office and also removed outlook credentials.  I have also uninstalled office and now the client will not even load.  


I found the solution to my problem in Microsofts answers:


This is what I did:

  • Shut down all Office Apps
  • In Explorer, navigate to  C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.AAD.BrokerPlugin_cw5n1h2txyewy\AC\Microsoft\Crypto\TokenBindingKeys\Keys
  • Delete the Keys in the folder
  • Relaunch Outlook - Keys are re-created automatically.

unlock, backup and remote control a broken screen Lumia 950 Windows Phone from a touchscreen PC?

My Microsoft Lumia 950 running windows 10 mobile  had a broken screen which had parts of the screen not functioning at all.  No chance to enter my PIN code to unlock the screen. Even connecting it to my windows PC did not show the data as long as the screen is locked.


You need two things to get access to your data again:
- A touchscreen computer running Windows 8 / 10 (Mouse/Keyboard does not work)
- The "Project My Screen App for Windows Phone" from Microsoft which can be downloaded here:     

Install and start the app on your tablet. Connect your phone via USB to the computer and tap on the screen. The computer will show your mobile device screen. If your computer is a touchscreen you can interact with the phone screen on the desktop/tablet as you would do with your finger on the phone itself.
Enter your PIN code and... there you go.

I found some hints how to do it here:

Windows Remote Desktop local taskbar hides remote taskbar in fullscreen mode

I did an RDP session to a remote host. In fullscreen mode, the remote taskbar was hidden by my local computer taskbar.

Bring up the task manager on the local computer, right-click "Windows Explorer" and select "Restart".

I re-opened the RDP session and now the Fullscreen worked fine again.
