Hi,

I have Outlook 2011 on a MacBook pro.

Today Outlook is asking me to rebuil the database because of a problem. I have tried 2 or 3 times with the Microsoft database utility . It doesnot succed I get the message "Impossible to rebuild*** (-18000)"
I have tried to make an another identity & copy the database foder from the original "Main identity" use the rebuild utility but without success.
I have recovered my "main identity" from time machine; it ask me to rebuild the index wth the Microsoft database utility but no success, always the same error message!

Please thanks to give me a solution, it is already a big amount of data >5gb
