Outlook 2016 not responding updating this folder

In this case, you should create a new PST file and copy all items from the old PST into the new one.

In such a stage, there’s little you can do except wait for the process to exit the stuck stage or quit. Imagine you’re in the middle of an important mail chain and have just sent a crucial input.

I have searched all over, and there seem to be many with similar (apparently) problem, and found numerous "solutions" (some even more cargocultish than mine), but so far none of them worked.

In short, I honestly have no idea what is actually causing Outlook to lock up, I might be completely barking up the wrong tree.

I have been trying many different combinations, I've even devolved to "Cargo-cult" debugging, since I have no clue what is causing this...

Here is my set up - since I don't know for sure which settings are causing the lockup, I'll probably mention irrelevant things: consistently, there are some times that it just happens by itself after some period of time (sometimes a few moments, sometimes a few hours; sometimes while using it, sometimes after I've been away from it for a few hours).

While the application includes some major under the hood changes, the interface is practically the same as its Outlook 2011 predecessor. New functionality that was added was almost exclusively for Office 365 customers.

Some long-standing features were actually removed too. Update: In addition to Office 365, Outlook 15 supports POP, IMAP and Exchange Server 2010 SP2 or higher.

Visibly, not much was new apart from cosmetic changes such as an overall color change to Microsoft’s signature blue and white, font changes, updates to icons and a few user interface tweaks. Update: Outlook now has pre-emptive threading using Apple’s Grand Central Dispatch (GCD) threading model introduced in OS X 10.7.
