Outlook is not supposed to be able to work over the network. It does 
work on a LAN, but even that, Microsoft recommends against it in one of 
their KB articles. They are not likely to make it work in a later 
version either, because for them the point is to sell you an Exchange 
server. With your data in a remote Exchange server and your local 
Outlook, it does work.

One alternative is to use IMAP email if you can. (And for IMAP email, I 
find Thunderbird a better email client than Outlook).

Maybe if you move your email to IMAP or out of Outlook to another 
program, and keep Outlook only for contacts and calendaring, the Outlook 
file size may become small enough that it would work (even though MS 
warns against it).
