Outlook Today will not open

By Kevin Fitzgerald ·
We use Office 2000 Pro on an XP pro PC & Exchange 2000. When trying to open Outlook today, Outlook freezes & reports an error in outlook.exe. I have re-installed Office with no success I have tried opening Outlook today from another PC with no success. The fault only happens to one e-mail account. I think the problem lies in the exchange server but do not know how to resolve it. Help!! pleae.

Are all your office security and program patches up to date on the workstation? If not, try the Microsoft update site and download all the patches the service recommends.

I had a similar issue a year or so ago, and once I patched the workstation the issue cleared up and hasn't come back.

Good luck.

Something like this could also be caused by a corrupted message in the Inbox. If patching/updating doesn't help, try either: (a) run the Inbox Repair Tool (scanpst.exe) or (b)export the mailbox using Exmerge, delete the old mailbox and create a completely new one, and then re-import the contents using Exmerge. Make sure you set Exmerge to ignore or delete any corrupted messages.

Hope this helps!

Outlook today Freezes

I had the same problem only in Outlook 2003. I created a new profile and then deleted the old. This fixed it for me.

Thanks very much for all that. I think I have narrowed the problem down to the calendar or at least I know the calendar is corupted, as soon as I try to look at entries for April this year outlook freezes. I have tried restoring the calendar from tape but all that did was to produce double entries. I use veritas version 9. I am still srtruggling with the problem so would be very grateful for any more suggestions help!!!.
