Morning

I have a mac user using outlook 2011.
We exported and imported an olm file, but if we go to the sent items it doesn't show the correct 'to' recipient, instead it shows 'Microsoft office user'.

Anyway to make it show the recipient?

Thank you

Thanks for that, i found that earlier and tried all 3 solutions but still no luck.

I didnt come right with 'right-click/control-click on 'Sent Items->Folder Properties' and then click 'Empty" to empty your cache ' on the mac, I'm assuming this would work on a windows Outlook.

I dont know if it is because the import in on My Computer under Archive that it could be causing this?!

Did you export it from MS Outlook? Or did you exported it from Outlook for Mac?

I assume it came from MS Outlook? Because on Mac you can't archive your mails in outlook for Mac.

This can cause problems, because outlook for mac, doesn't know the archiving features, and it's possible that he can't open MS archived mails for 100%.

So check if the normal send items of this user are fine.

2.     Click on the Go in the top menu in Finder and choose Home.

3.     Open Library.

4.     Open Preferences.

5.     Click to select com.microsoft.office.plist and drag it to Trash (Don't empty the Trash before the new information is entered).

6.     Open the Microsoft folder.

7.     Open Office 2011.

8.     Click to select Office Registration Cache and OLE Registration Database and drag it to  Trash (Don't empty the Trash before the new information is entered).

9.     Restart the Mac.

10.  Launch Word/Excel/PowerPoint/Outlook and click Continue on the first window.
