I have a MacBook Air and want to remove Outlook from it. I cannot do am export as I don't have enough hard drive space, and also cannot export over a network.

Where can I find the OLM files as with Outlook for Windows where the PST is already created?

This is explained on Quora:

Outlook stores only the indices in the Database (with a capital “D”) file and stores the data records as a series of files nested within folders. The Database file and its folders are located here:

  • ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2011 Identities/Main Identity/Database
  • ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2011 Identities/Main Identity/Data Records
