Are you using Outlook 2011? Are you using Exchange? What type of protocol are you using to sync to your account? IMAP? POP? EWS? WebDav?

Create a new identity instead of rebuilding, that's what we do:

1. With Outlook 2011 CLOSED, hold the option key and launch Outlook 2011
2. The Microsoft Database Utility should open
3. Click the '+' button to add a new identity
4. Set that identity to default using the 'Cog' next to the '-' button
5. Launch Outlook 2011
6. Sync your account

If this doesn't work, make sure your mail is still there. Verify this using the Web App.
