I installed Outlook 2011 a while back and never used it. Since then I created a new Mac user profile and tried running Outlook. I also had to do a restore from a Time Machine backup.

Now when I try to use Outlook it wants me to rebuild the database but fails when I try.

I don't need to save any email but just want to get Outlook to run. Any ideas?

Have you tried reinstalling it completely? – slhck Apr 6 '12 at 6:47

Apparently when I tried to uninstall Outlook I did not do it correctly. It is a manual process to uninstall Office 2011 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2398768

Once I followed the steps in the article I worked fine.
