Hi experts,
I have configured Outlook 2003 to Domino R5 server. But When I start Outlook, it takes some time and displays the following error message

"Cannot start microsoft office Outlook. Unable to open the Outlook window. The set of folders could not be opened."

I  am trying to connect to R5 using MAPI.

1. Is this a bug ?
2. Am I doing it correctly ?
After connecting to Domino I want to export the emails into a PST file.
3. Is there any other way of backing up the emails from Domino to PST files ?

Regards,
Kiran.

Again go to the Mail icon on your Control Panel, click on the button that says DATA FILES, click ADD, choose OFFICE OUTLOOK PERSONAL FOLSERS FILE, click OK.  Leave all options as they default to, click OK til back at DATA FILES window.  Click CLOSE.  Click EMAIL ACCOUNTS, choose VIEW OR CHANGE EXISTING EMAIL ACCOUNTS, then click NEXT.  At the bottom of the screen where it says DELVIER NEW EMAIL TO THE FOLLOWING LOCATION choose PERSONAL FOLDERS, then click FINISH.  Restart Outlook and see if you get the same error message.
