In win 2000 can you boot up and enter a date that you know you had no errors and start again?

Some stuff was accidently deleted and trying to fix that problem has created another problem with e-mail.

Thanks,

My MicroSoft Office was accidently erased during some routine cleanup.

Then when re-installed, Outlook wasn't recognized and I could not access my e-mail accounts.

In the toolbar where the envelope is is how I use to access my e-mail. Now I have to use the Outlook express icon in the start tray because the mail program is no longer available under the envelope.

I have no idea what is going on or whThanks

First, search for *.pst

Move the file to your desktop

Now start outlook, fill in all the details, and say yes when it asks if it wants to be the default mail program

did you search in hidden and system folders

Even if office bit the dust, you should still have this file(s) in

C:\Documents and Settings\{some name}\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

I searched again:

Says it does not exist and then it says it is not a valid folder type.

Are you looking for Outlook, or Outlook Express? OE would be .mbx files and you would find them under c:\documents and settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{numeric-character-string}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
