I don't know where to put this, but if it's in the wrong place I'm sure some kind soul will move it.

I'm running Outlook for Mac 2011 under Mavericks 10.9.5, and yesterday a new problem came up and it's a doozy!

The title says it all. I get an EXC_BAD_ACCESS error 10 seconds after the first keystroke in a new blank email. I'm attaching the error message. I would appreciate any help on this.

FWIW: I just determined that if I enter a character in the blank and immediately exit to put it into the Drafts folder, it sticks around and I can manage it.
