It sounds like your mail file got too large. I had this issue and
resolved it by archiving old mail items and compacting the archive
folder. Outlook started having too many issues for me, like being slow
because I store all of mail, so I switched to Thunderbird and I am very
happy with this email client. I can import my Outlook messages into
Thunderbird, but it is convenient enough to just access Outlook when I
need to look through old mail.
