Outlook closes as soon as it starts

When I start Outllok 2007 I get a message bubble in the system tray saying"A data file did not close properly last time it was used and is being checked for errors".

Then outlook opens and after a few seconds closes

It creates the following in event viewer:

The content source <mapi://{s-1-5-21-203667054-2063414239-695505244-1000}/> cannot be accessed.

Context: Windows Application, SystemIndex Catalog

Details:
      A server error occurred. Check that the server is available.   (0x80041206)


The XML view of this is:

I've tried creating a new profile at start-up with no email, but I still get the same failure.

My normal profile connects to an exchange mailbox on my ISP.  OUltook on my other PC connects to this as normal.

I can run in safe mode with this, but it does not stop the fault when I then run again.  I've tried rebuilding the Windows search index and I've tried reapiriung the Office 2007 installation, but still get the fault.

The only way I managed to resolve the problem myself was to reinstall Vista and start again!
