    MacBook Pro 10.9
    i7 with 16 GB RAM, plenty of free HD space

    Spinning wheel comes up for about 5 seconds or so during typing in body of email messages, happens a lot. Tried rebuilding the identity, tried the sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force command

    This guy has only a 185 MB mailbox up in O365 but his Identity is over 10 GBs. WHy? He created an archive and a ton of subfolders. He drags and drops all his incoming messages into these folders. Is this the "wrong" way to archive or is this ok?

    In Windows, archiving out of an OST to a PST helps Outlook wrap it's arms around the newer and now smaller OST. WHat's the point of archiving in Outlook for Mac though? Seemingly the Identity doesn't get any smaller. I'm not seeing what archiving in 2011 achieves.

    Outlook for Mac 2011 was borked by Microslop out of the box when it was first released. There are several issue that Microsoft has refused to fix (I think this is one of them)

    You might want to inquire at the Office for Mac Microsoft Community.

    I have 3GB at my Office365 Exchange account. My Main Identity folder is 4GB. I don't do that sort of archiving...leave everything on the server.

    I don't see behavior like you're describing.

    My version of Outlook is 14.4.3.
