A couple months ago I thought I'd switch from Thunderbird to Outlook, I thought it would make sense seeing as I'd started paying for MS Office.

However it reminded me on just how bad Outlook is and I stopped using it a few days later.

Seeing as it downloaded a pretty hefty amount of emails (there didn't appear to be a way to limit the sync like in Thunderbird) I would like to remove any files it generated from my hard drive.

Does anyone know how I can do this? I imagine it is just a case of deleting the necessary file(s) folder(s)?

I'm assuming you're using MS Outlook 2016. If so, the location of your data will be within your user's Library folder.

To view this:

  • Go to Finder
  • Press and hold the option key
  • Click on the Go menu and select the Library option
  • You can let go of the option key now
  • Within the Library folder navigate to the Group Containers folder
  • Within the Group Containers folder look for a folder starting with "UB" and ending with .office
  • Open this folder and you will see the Outlook folder

Within this folder are located any profiles you created - you can delete these as you wish.

Try ~/Library/Group Containers/, Microsoft office is wierd like that... it should be in a folder named something like UBF8T346G9.Office then inside /Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles/ to go straight there, try going to ~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles/ alternatively, run the following in terminal: rm -rf ~/Library/Group\ Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/Outlook/directory structure is as follows ~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles/
