One thing you might try is running the Office Configuration Analyzer Tool (OffCAT).

This will tell you about Outlook hotfixes that are available but not yet applied to your Office installation.  Installing one of these hotfixes may resolve your issue.  (FYI - most of these hotfixes are not available via Windows Update).
