Outlook 2016 for Mac Freezes (OS X El Capitan)

hoidwldbxv asked on

Just upgraded to Outlook 2016 as part of the new Office 2016 for Mac package. Running Public Beta of OS X El Capitan (10.11). Outlook freezes (pinwheel) and I'm forced to Force Quit Outlook as a result. 

There is mention of an increased level of security in El Capitan again a certain TLS vulnerability called "Logjam." Wondering if this is indeed the culprit behind the problems with Outlook. I am not noticing any issues with Outlook / Office 2016 for Mac on another Apple notebook I have. Any insights on this?

On a related note, Outlook 2016 for Mac will NOT let me export emails, calendar, etc. that Outlook 2011 for Mac offered. I don't have an issue rolling back to Yosemite but I will lose all my emails. Is there a workaround for this?

Thanks in advance for your insight / input.

Personally, no change after latest update. I'm on El Capitan GM.

Every wake from sleep ends up with all office apps to freeze with the need to force quit!

This is inacceptable from Microsoft. 

I really want to love this new version but I ran into so many troubles that it is quite difficult...
