Lenovo W530 and W540 and office 2013 issues

Guys i am having some issues with our lenovo laptops and office 2013 and Microsoft can't seem to figure out. When users using lenovo laptops send emails it gets stuck in outbox and to resolve we need to close and re-open outlook, after reopen outlook all the email disappears and the user have to retype the email and send again.

i have Dell's PC's and they work well with office 365, the lenovo are pretty new PC's running Windows 8.

Any help is appreciated

This is not about Lenovo. It should be because of Outlook itself or user mailbox is too big and that cause Outlook to respond properly. You can try following.

1. Try creating new PST file as default email delivery location
2. Disable Outlook addons if it is not in used or not required. (Google it how to disable)
3. Run windows updates/ Office 2013 service pack updates

Try to install Outlook 2007 on it and see if you have the same problem in Outlook 2007.
