Follow the steps mentioned below :

  • Create a new identity to remove database issues
  • Check your folder’s arrangement and system settings

To create a new user, the predefined path is :

Go to System Preferences --> Create a New User in Accounts.

Then Switch to the New User by logging out/in or you can try user Switching option.

If you still face this issue then problem exists into folders i.e. associated with Outlook Mac backup file.
