    Two days ago I was using my Outlook fine and checking my e-mail and messages and yesterday it just does not come up. I let it wait for 4 minutes and does not come on at all until I restart my computer. What did I do wrong and how do I fix this problem?

    I'm using Windows 2000 Pro. I can't check it period because it does not come on after I click on tne quick launch bar.

    Hi CLHanssen,
    just a thought, how big is the .pst file?
    can you open it when in safe mode?
    did you do anything to the box before this happened?
    did you open an e-mail that acted kind of strange? if so, do you have the preview pane open?
    what ver of office do you have?
    what OS do you have?
    have you tried to do a virus scan?
    you no doubt did most of these things, but i like to get this stuff out of the way early.

    Are you talking about Outlook or Outlook Express?
