    I'm runing XP and installed Outlook 2007 on my PC. Because I traveled to multiple sites, I kept a copy of my company's exchange server details and entered them at whatever site I was at to get to my email, etc..

    I tried entering them when I set up Outlook at home and they didn't work for security issues. I can't seem to delete them and use my outlook for my gmail account.

    I open Outlook and it tries to "Configure Outlook Accounts".

    Then it opens a Microsoft Exchange box with the Exchange server and Mailbox. I can't delete the fields and don't have a good exchange server to use. I click "Cancel" and then it opens another error box stating...

    "Cannot open your default email folders. The file C:\Documents and Settings\YertDeer\Local Settings\Application data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.ost is not an offline folder."

    I click OK and it shuts down Outlook completely. I searched the forums and found a similar problem solved for 2003 user, but wouldn't work for me.

    Thanks for any assistance.
