Have you tried to remove the mail profile and re-add the mail profile?

Hello Pchettri,

I have both Outlook 2016 and 2011 on my 2010 Mac Mini.  It has 8 GB of RAM and is working smoothly.  It is slow to start but once in RAM, both versions work well.

Which leads me to some questions:
-  What are the specs for your Mac?  (age, model, RAM, disk space, CPU,...)
-  How are you connecting to the network/server?
-  What type of account (IMAP, exchange, POP)?

If you do need to recreate your profile, use the Profile Manager Tool to do it:

Outlook might complain a bit with a 16 GB identity but perhaps not on the mac in question.

I would try to create a new profile and see what happens.  Under the previous version of Outlook (2011), one had the option of rebuilding the existing identity database but that no longer seems to be the case.
