Problems with Address Book
Posted on 2004-04-02
I've reinstalled XP & OfficeXP this week and am trying to use the same Outlook.pst that I'd been using prior to the reinstall. I can open it but i can't open (or add any new addresses) to the address book. I'm betting it has something to do with some small tidbits of corruption in the prior file (i had two 'Personal Folders' folders open over there) but whatever the problem the scanpst.exe didn't fix it. Ran it once and it fixed a bunch of stuff but still unable to open add book. Ran it again and it found no errors.
At this point i'd be happy enough just to start with a blank slate and manually import the various folder i need from my backedup .pst. But how do i get a clean pst without uninstalling/reinstalling?
