outlook not working properly - possible registry problem

my friends copy of outlook is not working properly - he is using windows XP Pro and Outlook 2003 from office pro

send and receive simply doesnt function - not receiving email
will not allow entry to email settings reporting registry error

- detect and repair
-system restore
- uninstall office and re- install rebooting between
- uninstall office run registry mechanic and reinstall

none of these make any difference?
any ideas would be appreciated

Hi gbswales,

Have you tried to create a new profile in Outlook to check what happens in that ?

Is the internet connection in that machine always working ?

Is that a legal copy of outlook ?

Has the email account ever worked before in that outlook ? When did this issue occur ? Did it occur after any changes to windows xp or Outlook ?

You said not receiving email . Can you send emails fine ?

Going to send/receive group, have you checked if send and receive items are checked for this email account ?

email account was working perferctly before and has been for sometime - nothing unusual done to outlook and not other programmes installed - its a mysteery. Will try createing a new profile and see if that helps - if it does we can always import the PST file
