Problem creating folder name in Outlook 2011 for MAC

When I try to create or change the name of a custom folder by right clicking ""rename folder", the window only opens for a second, then closes before the file can be renamed.  Any suggestions for how to facilitate these name changes without working offline?

Try emptying the cache on the inbox by going into the Inbox properties, then see if you can rename it.

Why not? Just rename the folder, then go back online.
