1. Enter TimeMachine
2. Choose a point in time from where you would like to restore your database
3. Go to folder ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2011 Identities
4. Mark your profile (often it's called Main Identity) and choose Restore to ...
==> TimeMachine exits and you are prompted to choose where to restore
6. Choose to restore to ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2011 Identities/
==> You get a question if you want to replace original, keep both versions or keep the original version
7. Choose either 'Keep both' or 'Replace'
==> If you choose Keep both, the original Identity will be renamed with a trailing (original) and the restored one will be the current one. Otherwise you have only one, and that is the current (restored) one.
8. Start Outlook to a restored profile.
