Outlook 2016 - Cannot Display Folder

I am having a problem with a Windows 10 machine that I shared a number of exchange mailboxes with. It often displays the error "Cannot display the folder. There is not enough free memory to run this program. Quit one or more programs, and try again." when clicking on the primary accounts inbox in Outlook. The laptop has 4GB RAM and an SSD with no other applications open. Details Windows 10 64-bit and Office 365 Outlook 2016 64-bit. Any ideas?

This issue occurs because there is insufficient memory to display the folder. This may be caused by any one of many reasons. These reasons can include customizations that were made to the folder view, such as setting a filter. With Business Contact Manager for Outlook, the add-in subscribes to every folder in every store in the profile. Each MAPI subscription uses some shared memory. Therefore, large combinations of items and folders can deplete memory.

One More Thing, If you have a large Outlook Data (.pst) file open in Outlook, you can try to close the .pst file or to decrease the number of folders in the .pst file.

Do you have more than 500 folders to be displayed at the same time?

If yes, you have reached the maximum limit for folders and there is no workaround.

If I have a bunch of shared mailboxes open do they add to the 500 folder limit?

FYI I have recreated the OST file and change the SharedMemMaxSize and the problem persists.

There are several ways to manage your mailbox and reduce the size of the data file. You can take an attempt to archive Outlook data file and empty deleted items folder.
Go to the File tab
Click ToolsMailbox Cleanup
Here you can view the size of your mailbox and individual folders it contains.

To move older items in your mailbox to an archive Outlook Data File (.pst), click AutoArchive and empty your deleted item folders to reduce the size of Outlook data file. You can also delete the conflict folder by clicking the Delete tab. Usually, the mailbox does not take up the big part of Outlook OST file but it can have much more contents even bigger in size.

Hope it might help you!!
Cheers !!

If your bunch of shared mailboxes are within your mail profile (i.e. not a secondary mail profile), all folders will take into the 500 folder limit.
