This bug would be solved if you reboot the system. The temporary Internet Explorer files would create issues .In such condition you have to clean up Internet Explorer's temporary files. If these files are damaged, Outlook would get issues in displaying messages. To solve this, firstly open a new Internet Explorer window and click on "Tools." You have to click "Delete Browsing History" and then choose "Delete Files." When an alert window would open, you need to click "Yes" to confirm that all these files would be deleted.
This bug might be due to corrupted storage folders. Outlook would store emails in five different folders. The folders which would appear in the email program are actually files which are hidden deep inside the directory structure. These folder files could be corrupted because of a malicious email, or incorrect closer of the program etc. If Outlook would not respond on your system and this would happen whenever you start the program, you need to delete the faulty files. The email client would be able to create the default folders once again when it's started. Before doing that you have to backup all files.
