Office 2013: LSU Overview]
Office 2013 Update KB2817630 has
caused the folder pane in Outlook 2013 to become blank. We
have set this update to uninstall through WSUS. After any
machine with the bad update "runs Windows Update" against the LSU
WSUS server, it should uninstall the update. A reboot is
required to complete the uninstall.
Microsoft is aware of the issue and
is working on a new update without this bug.
You can always use OWA - Outlook
Web Access as a temporary workaround, if uninstalling the update
does not resolve the issue.
