Enabling VBA/Macros

I had a crash that didn't close the .PST file correctly. On restart Outlook asked if I wanted to disable the macros -- some kind of recovery question -- but I don't recall the exact wording. I said 'Yes'. In any case, it was apparently permanent. I can't bring up the VB Editor (Alt-F11) or anything under the macros submenu. MS knowledge base says to use Office setup to make it's installed to re-enable. I uninstalled all of Office 2003 and reinstalled -- no change. All the other Office 2003 apps work fine, macros and VBA included -- just not Outlook. I've looked in the registry, tried command-line switches, uninstall and reinstall, set all security settings to their lowest value - nothing works. Wherever this switch is, it's well hidden. Can anyone tell me how to get VBA enabled again in Outlook 2003?

Thanks,
Hal

Hi Hal,
    I get this every time I edit my MACROs in Outlook. What works for me is to click on the main menu "Help - > About Microsoft Office Outlook -> Dissabled Items" then select the VBA item and click "Enable"
