The issue can occur due the Manifest URL being unavailable or is incorrect


Verify that the URL is available:

  • The page should display a series of XML commands which are used to download and install the add-in into your environment.
  • If you are using a proxy server, make sure to test access to the site via direct as well as via the proxy.
  • Ensure that the administrator has the correct Exchange roles assigned to install the add-in. Refer to the Microsoft TechNet article for general information on required administrator permissions and instructions for installing an Outlook Add-in.
