Outlook 2016 hangs after few minutes

Hi,
I am using Outlook 2016 version 1711 (build 8730.2175). My OS is Windows 10 Pro.
CPU I5, 8 GB Ram.
I use Kaspersky AV.
I have 4 IMAP accounts, two of them on same IMAP server.
After a few minutes, Outlook "freezes" and I am forced to kill it through task manager.
It seems my error occours during email composition.
I tried:
- disable Kaspersky plugin "Anti-Virus addin"
- completely uninstall Kaspersky
- disable other addition components ("Microsoft SharePoint Server Colleague Import Add-in" and "Microsoft VBA for Outlook Addin").

No way.
It is still crashing.

The error I get in Event Viewer is: "The program OUTLOOK.EXE version 16.0.8730.2175 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed"

Thank you very much

Hi, unfortunately, I have no such software (just "standard" Adobe Acrobat Reader DC).
I wondering if this issue happens when Outlook tries to save "draft" message to IMAP server..

When this occurs, open Kaspersky Endpoint Security (system tray icon) and check if KES downloads and install updates or if there is a virus scan running. If yes, stop it and open Outlook again and see if it helps.

Try another profile. Results?

Where are your pst files stored? On network share?

Hi, as  I said, I also tried to completely remove Kaspersky, but I got no results.
I will try with a new profile and I'll let you know, thank you
PST are stored on local hard disk (I just check: 3 accounts have 1.5 GB size, the last has 5.3 GB)

Hello ThereSystem AdministratorCommented:
Well, when you install Kaspersky it might have a few default tasks that run after startup. Check this option too.

Also open Control panel -> Mail:
Profiles (should be set as Outlook)
Data Files (remove all and start Outlook)

Run Outlook in safe mode: Start -> outlook.exe /safe or outlook.exe /s

I'm agree with creating new User Account and also run Outlook in safe mode to check if you need to disable add-ins /com add-ins but if above suggestion didn't fix the issue then you need to Repair Outlook (online Repair):

Hi,
it seems problem is definitely solved server-side.
I noticed this error in error_log (imap server is dovecot):

Jan 17 04:53:30 mailserver dovecot: imap(username@domain.com): Error: fts_solr: Indexing failed: 500 Server Error

Open in new window


I tried to rebuild mailbox's index with this command (it is a cPanel server)

/scripts/rescan_user_dovecot_fts --user=domain

Open in new window


I had no issues anymore, even without build a new Outlook profile, even with Kaspersky Antivirus plugin activated
