Corrupted .PST files on Mac

IMAP
I have migrated our server from shared to virtual private server.
Now I see that we are using a lot of bandwidth with our IMAP emails.
After a lengthy investigation, I found out that one email address that is on IMAP setup is using all the bandwidth (400kb/s which comes up to 24GB a day).
I would like to know how to find the corrupted file on this email, or how I can solve this bandwidth issue without having to change it as a POP email.
Thank you

    You can use outlook pst repair tool to repair this. Or go for manual method, First determine the size of the identity, then backup the current Identity for safe job. Now rebuild the database. If you see the message like "Your database was rebuilt......". It is OK. Now create a new Identity.

    Thank you for such a quick response. I forgot to say that I am using MAC OSX El Captain. When you say "identity", what do you mean exactly?
