Outlook 2007 Troubles

I recently just upgraded my work computer to Microsoft Office 2007. Now, all seems well... Word '07, Excel '07, etc; however, Outlook 2007 did not seem to make the transition.

First of all, all programs seemed to be updated to the newer version (Word, Excel, etc.); but Outlook kept the original program as well as the new 2007 version. In addition, when starting up 2007 I was prompted with a user name, port, and password option (something that I have never seen with this program... given the name NULL for user name, 3826 for port, and the option to enter a password). Now, I entered some user information (made it up because I was not sure what the actual info was, while keeping the original port number).

Anyway, now when I open Outlook 2007, I am no longer prompted for the user info/password stuff. The real problem comes when I try to open any of the folders (i.e. Inbox, Sent, etc.). I get an error message every time that says that Microsoft encountered an error and needs to close. I cannot view any of the contents of the folder/s.

I have uninstalled the program and then reinstalled it again... but to no avail, the same problem is encountered. Also, I have downloaded every available update (i.e. service packs, sercurity packs, etc.); but once again, the problem continues.

I would greatly appreciate any help as to what may be the problem here. I am clueless at what to try next...
