Outlook 2003 Error When Trying to Connect Offline
Posted on 2007-03-20
XP Pro SP2 computer with Outlook 2003 that was connected to SBS 2003's Exchange Server in what I thought was cached mode. The computer is no longer at the company's location and the user's account has been deleted from the server.
I had assumed that I could open Outlook on the computer and export the cached mailbox to a PST file for archive. But I'm getting the following, very wordy error:
Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Unable to open Outlook window. Before you can use this offline foler file, you must connect to your Microsoft Exchange Server with the current profile and synchronize your folder at least once.
I've searched for an OST file and find nothing. All that I find in the Outlook folder for the profile is an archive PST and a few config files.
Am I out of luck?
