I have issue with Outlook 2011 on a Mac

I have a brand new iMac that I have updated and install Office 2011 on it.  I go to setup outlook 2011 to connect to my Exchange 2010 server and it was ridiculously slow, over 2 minutes just to open an email without any attachments.  I did some research and discovered that the outlook profile could be corrupt, so I deleted the profile and rebuilt a new one, still the same issue.  I completely uninstalled office and reinstalled, still outlook is really really slow.  Is there an issue with the MS Office and the latest Mac OS?

it could be that the size of your mailbox in server is huge. and usually for the first install leave it for 2 hours and then it should be okay and fast.  because if the size of your emails in server is huge then it takes some times to load an sync all those emails to your IMac outlook.   outlook usually works in background when loading the email for the first time from server.

If finally figured it out, it was a bad network connection.  Thanks.
