cannot delete email in Outlook

Cannot delete an email in Outlook 216 (office 365)  I have been trying to delete and email but every time I do it locks up Outlook and I have to close it and reopen.  When I do the email is still there.  I logged into email online and the email message is not in the inbox like it shows up in Outlook on my computer.  Any ideas?
