Tasita Ebacher blogged last week about a new imporvement in Outlook for Mac for O365. Check this out.
One of the biggest improvements in Outlook for Mac for Office 365 compared to Outlook for Mac 2011 is that the database has been completely replaced by SQLite. If you’ve used Outlook for Mac 2011 previously, you may have ran into issues with database corruption and are familiar with having to manually rebuild the database.
With Outlook for Mac for Office 365, you will no longer need to manually perform database rebuilds. This is due to several reasons:
- The reliability and stability of the new database have been greatly improved, so the likelihood of database issues occurring is lower overall.
- Outlook will perform a silent recovery in the background for small database issues, no longer requiring database rebuilds.
- For larger database issues where a silent recovery is not possible and a database rebuild is necessary, Outlook will prompt the user to repair the database to fix the problem.
