I can open it up fine, and it automatically goes to the latest email, which is a rather large one with some web content. The email is from a trust source so it normally automatically downloads the web content (like pictures etc...)
The problem is, partly through the rendering of the email, outlook completely freezes. When I click within outlook I get the (not responding) error on the title bar.
So far I have tried
scan disk, no errors
scanpst.exe (repaired errors but to no effect) I made backup of the unrepaired pst file first
system restore to yesterday
removing my antivirus (as it has a outlook plugin on some kind I thought I would try it)
repairing office 2003
reinstalling ms office 2003
removing then reinstalling ms office 2003
physically disconnecting from the net to keep that one email from downloading its web content (on the theory that the message is corrupt some how)
I am open to any other ideas...
