I have one computer that continues to experience Outlook issues and the problem is not easily traceable. While troubleshooting is there a way to disable the integrity check? The integrity check takes over an hour. I've disabled add-ons in safe mode which hasn't helped.

Verifying data security means that Outlook is checking the data file for the mail profile, i.e. .PST file or .OST file.

My wild guess is that you have a huge  .PST file or .OST file and it is corrupted from time to time.

Where do you store the  .PST file or .OST file?

If the client is using Exchange then I'd probably suggest re-creating the outlook profile.

If its  a PST file then run scanpst on it:

Worked after running the SCAN.pst on the ost file. Strange deleting the .ost alone didn't fix this, the recreated had same issues. SCAN took forever, close to 1.2 hours when finished and after fixing issues found now working.
