I'm having a strange problem that I can't seem to fix. Some folder names in the folder list are overlapping as you can see from the attached image. I've tried running quick and full repair on Office. I also reinstalled Office but the problem is still there. I don't see overlapping on any other Office applications and the computer seems to be working fine.

Any ideas on how I can fix this?

You could try restarting Outlook using the /resetnavpane switch, but first... are you using the Touch mode? You'll have a vertical toolbar on the right side of the reading pane - try switching to mouse mode from the Quick Access toolbar's touch icon -

I have a client with this exact same issue! Sometimes the folder gaps will appear when opening Outlook, sometimes they won't. The overlapping text is also present now and then. If they right-click and choose to create a new sub-folder, a new gap is instantly created.

I saw it on one of my systems yesterday. It went away when i switched navigation panes. It was on my hi-res laptop.
