I had a cross liked "outlook.pst" file, and ran the Inbox Repair Tool that comes with Office 2000. I lost everything except for my Account settings and Rules. All contacts, emails and folders are gone. I don't think I can get it back, but I can't seem to move forward either. After running the Repair Tool, I am able to do everything that I try. The problem is that every new email message I receive generates a reminder message. I can Dismiss, Snooze or Open Item. If I click on Dismiss, anther reminder will open, then I click on Dismiss again and then it goes away. This is for EVERY new message I get. When I close Outlook and reopen int, all of those reminders come back and I have to dismiss everyone of them again. I can't find any enteries in the Calendar or Tasks. I am at a loss here. Anyone have any ideas?

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Outlook? That doesn't sound like a problem that really has a "solution" to it. Sounds like something is big-time corrupted.
