Afternoon All,

I have a user with a Macbook Pro, OS X 10.6.8 - they have Microsoft Office installed and have reported that Outlook crashed this afternoon. I'm a little vague on how a Microsoft apply the program on a Mac works, but am well adverse to working in a Windows enviroment.

So my question is where do Microsoft store the data files on a Mac, I have found the Main Identity folder in the documents folder. It contains a database file of 536 Mg, but the user had a local pst folder of around 3gb while on a Windows PC.

The user has a POP3 mail account.

Any ideas?
