Outlook 2003 System event log message
Posted on 2004-04-01
Windows 2003 Server with Outlook 2003 installed, but not configured. IE no email accounts have been setup.
On boot I get a popup and the following in the SYSTEM event log:
Source: Application popup
Application popup: Microsoft Office Outlook : Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Office Outlook and set it as the default mail client.
The popup appears BEFORE logon, so it isn't a logon script or something in the run keys in the registry. There is no startup script run on this server.
At the same time the BackupExec remote agent (BEREMOTE.EXE v9.0.4454.0) service hangs on startup, but the service restarts immediately and the server is backed up fine - I don't think these two are related.
Max points to anyone who can solve this puppy!
