Re: Outlook 2007 Won't Open

Reinstalling the program doesn't help if it is trying to read an existing,
corrputed pst file.
Did you run the inbox repair tool?

Re: Outlook 2007 Won't Open

Have you tried following the instructions you were given in the error
message? That would be the first logical step to try.

Re: Outlook 2007 Won't Open

Does it load in Safe Mode?
Start-> Run; outlook.exe /safe

For additional suggestions see+
http://www.howto-outlook.com/faq/outlookdoesntopen.htm

As for migrating data see;
http://www.howto-outlook.com/howto/backupandrestore.htm


Is Outlook running in the background? Use Task Manager to see if any
outlook.exe processes are active. Kill them all and then try it again.

Close Outlook. Find and rename mapi32.dll to .old. Locate and run
Fixmapi.exe. Reopen Outlook. If this does not fix it, then create a new
mail profile.

How to create a new e-mail profile in Outlook
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=829918

After you created a new profile I would "add" your old PST file
(File/Open/Personal Folders).

Then you have 2 "Personal Folders" but you can not delete the new empty one.

You must change the delivery folder to the "old" PST file.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ou...170471033.aspx

After a restart of Outlook you can delete the "new" empty PST file.

Re: Outlook 2007 Won't Open

The error message is pretty clear - run the Inbox Repair tool, open Help and
Support and get more help if you need it.

Re: Outlook 2007 Won't Open

Jugi,

goto c:\program files\microsoft office\office 12\
run the file called scanpst.exe

browse to the location where your *.pst file is and let the repair tool run,
it'll probably find some errors in it so just press 'repair'.

After it's complete you'll be able to open your outlook again.

Greetz,
