Office 2016 for Mac, and local storage of email

Office 2016 for the Mac – as you may or may not know by the time you read this – is currently available, via an Office365 subscription. See

With Office 2011 for Mac, your Outlook files were stored within your Documents folder, in the folder “Office 2011 Identities” inside of the “Microsoft User Data” (~/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2011 Identities).

This has changed as of Office 2016. Local storage for Outlook 2016 is to be found within the (user’s) Library folder, in the “Group Containers” folder:
~/Username/Library/Group Containers/XXXXXXXXXX.Office/Outlook/Outlook\ 15\ Profiles/Main\ Profile/Data

(where “XXXXXXXXX” is a 10-digit alpha-numeric string).
