Problem

When you open Outlook on your Mac, it opens for a brief moment and then closes.

You may not even see the application load up at all.


Solution

  1. Hold the alt key and click on the Outlook icon on the Dock
    - If it's not there, go to the /Applications/Microsoft Office 2011 folder and drag the Outlook file to the Dock
  2. The Microsoft Database Utility window will appear. Click the Rebuild button
  3. It will now rebuild the Outlook Database, once it has finished click Done
  4. Close the Microsoft Database Utility and open Outlook
  5. If the problem still exists, you'll more than likely need to reinstall Microsoft Office
