Hi Shannon, 

In order for you to set up outlook 2011 in Macintosh the very first thing that you need to do is to install Microsoft Office on your Mac, you can purchase it via apple store, or if you have installer at home you may also use it.

Please go to this website: http://www.everythingmacintosh.com/tech-notes/outlook-2011-email-setup/

You can easily follow the steps provided. All you have to do is to follow the procedure and fill in all the necessary details for your account.

About the Timezone, outlook will auto correct the time on your calendar, let say if you’re currently in California then it will automatically set to PST but if you wanted to add, remove or change time zones, you may visit the website: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-remove-or-change-time-zones-5ab3e10e-5a6c-46af-ab48-156fedf70c04?CorrelationId=e5dd0183-4184-4b54-bcd1-1441ca6ac906&ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&ocmsassetID=HP001230303

For your reference.

On Macintosh, you need to have Office for Mac so one can create a PST file. Also, Outlook for Mac does not use a PST file just like with Windows but instead it stores the messages in a different manner. You can find the files in the following location:

/users/[your username]/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2011 Identities/Main Identity

Under this folder, the email is stored in the following location:

Data Records/Messages

Outlook for Mac does not support or does not use PST and OST files. Every item is stored as an individual file which allows indexing with Spotlight for searching much easier. The main purpose of creating a PST file on Mac is when installing Microsoft Office Outlook on a new Macintosh so you can import your messages to the new computer.

“OLM” is the data file used for Outlook for Mac. It can be considered as the counterpart of the OST/PST file on Windows. The following are the default locations for the OLM file:

For Outlook for Mac 2011:

/Users/[username]/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2011 Identities/Main Identity

For Outlook for Mac 2016:

/Users/[username]/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles/Main Profile

These locations don’t point to the actual OLM file. The OLM file has to be created by exporting the data to a saving location. To create the file, in Outlook for Mac, go to “Tools” tab then select “Export.” Under “Export to Archive (OLM),” browse the items you want to export then click to continue.

In “Save as” dialog, navigate to the location where you want to save the OLM file then click to save the file. After exporting the data, the OLM file has to be imported to the new Outlook for Mac. On the new Macintosh, in Outlook for Mac, go to “Tools” tab then select “Import.”

On the next screen, navigate to the location of the OLM file you just created, select it then click “Continue.” And that’s it. After importing, the files should now be in their respective folders on the new Mac.
