My Outlook 2000 is getting worse every day. Now I can't even check my email without doing it through the Internet. :mad:
I have tried /resetfolders and opening in /safe mode but it still locks up. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but still having the same problems.
Any ideas?? :tazz:

Not recently - as in the past 3 or 4 months. Why, has this problem been addressed there or are you thinking let's cover the bases first?

Invariably, knowledge base articles suggest the latest updates, best to check with those, you could get lucky, if it is not solved then at least other things can be looked at.

I got lucky!

Thanks for your info BUT I read in another site that it could be a damaged PST file so I renamed it with an ' old ' extension so I could retrieve it if necessary and then imported a backup PST file from March and presto!

Thanks very much for your input but I think we can call this one 'resolved' :tazz:
