In some cases, especially after upgrading the Exchange Server, you might get an error message stating that Outlook is now using the Temporary mailbox, or asking you to switch to the temporary mailbox.

This means that your connection with the Exchange Server goes offline every now and then, and so Outlook is using a temporary mailbox, which will be connected to the mail server when the connection is reestablished. According to the Outlook tech support website, in most cases, deleting your profile and creating a new one will solve this problem.
