I was using outlook 2007 and didn't like it much.  I uninstalled office 2007 and installed office 2003.  I am now using outlook 03 connecting to exchange.  My outlook client has continuously been syncing with the exchenge server.  Its been doing this for at least 5 hours.  Some emails are showing duplicates.  Any idea on how to fix?

How large is your mailbox?
I have seen this happen for very large mailboxes with multiple folders under the inbox where most users file their email like a filing cabinet.
If you're exchange server is not on your site, it will be even slower because the larger the mailbox, the more data it has to sync to rebuild the OST file. I would first check to see how large your mailbox is, then we can go from there.

OK that problem is solved.  However, I have another one.

When I click on the send/receive button I receive the following error:

An OLE registration error occurred.  This program is cot correctly installed.  Run setup again for the program.

I have reinstalled twice already.
