    I'm running Outlook (came with Office XP) under Windows 2000
    and today when I trried to open an email message it would
    not open. I then closed Outlook and now when I try to open it
    I cannot. I got a message telling me there was something wrong
    and I should open it in "safe mode", when I tried this it took
    so long I stopped it using Task manager. I also tried opening
    it bypassing safe mode but that doesn't work either.
    Can anyone help please?

    Thanks for your suggestion. I managed to fix it by downloading a file called scanpst.exe. I ran this, Outlook opened ok and is now working fine. Long may it continue to do do.
    Thanks ((*_*))
