I use Microsoft Outlook for my business mail. The program is part of the Microsoft for Mac 2011 suite.

Unfortunately. I cannot find where in the finder/library my mail is stored.  I use OS X (10.8.4)

Appreciate any and all help possible.

Thanks,  Mark

Here is where it should be


Documents>Microsoft User Data>Office 2011 Identities>Your Identity.


It's in an .olm file in there. Or should be.

or try the Office:Mac support forums at this link:

That save you reading a bunch of stuff written for IT professionals.


In Outlook's forebear, MS Entourage, the path to stored mail is:


Macintosh HD > Users > [your username] > Documents > Microsoft User Data > Office (version number) Identities > Main Identity


Might try that path to see if Outlook uses the same structure.
