thanx. It seems to be working now, don't know what went wrong with it. I still need to find the files tho, I saw the outlook files before and used them to import but i cant remember where, anyone know?
Mine are in c:\documents and settings\my name\application data\identities
then there are a load of folders, all with nonsense names. There's a Microsoft\outlook express folder in each of these. You just need to find the right one.
Go into explorer or my computer if you use xp and do a search for *.pst. Once it has run through and found your files, if you choose show details it should give you the location of the .pst files which are your outlook files.
Problems in usual application startup is a clear indicative of issues with outlook PST files, they are probably corrupt for some reason and that is the time when finding the existing issue is important before the same can be repaired. So, far the location of PST file is concerned it is within office outlook folders and slight variations owing to the operating system & outlook version used may also be experienced. www.outlook-2007repair.com
