Outlook "Trying to Connect"

I've never experience any issues staying connected to Exchange. Recently after moving to Office 365 for the first time I started to use multiple Exchange accounts, four to be specific. Now I am constantly getting the "trying to connect" message as I am working. Generally at some point everything gets back in sync, but in the mean time my work is constantly interrupted because I'm not connected to Exchange. For instance right now I want to create an out of office message, but I can't because I am "not connected to server".

Any ideas or suggestions? Am I destined for problems because I am doing something a little bit out of the box and connecting to 4 accounts?

Edit: I just noticed that the trying to reconnect message seems to occur predominantly on the primary (default) account. This is also by far the largest account (multiple GB) in case that is relevant, the other accounts store very little. Of course the primary account is also the one I need to work in 99% of the time :-(.

Thanks
 
I read somewhere that Outlook only supports (3) accounts so I deleted on in case that was the problem. Issue is still occurring.
