Hi,
What kind of specification do you have on your computer? Is it a first config you're trying to do? Check Task Manager and see how much RAM memory you have available when trying to start it.
Try starting Outlook with /firstrun switch and see if it goes better. START > Run > Outlook.exe /firstrun
You can also try loggin in to computer with SHIFT hold down to not make anything autostart and see if that works as a step of your troubleshooting. A little warning though cause the firewall/antivirus could be disabled while doing this

Hello supportpro,

If you disable programs running in the background, does the resource error go away?

What version of Outlook are you using? Run this Outlook trouble shooter.
1. Reset the Outlook toolbar template. With Outlook close, do a search for and rename outcmd.dat file. Do the same for frmcache.dat and outlprnt files. Restart Outlook.

Outcmd.dat is located in C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder. It is a hidden file, so you have to unhide hidden files. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

2. If no joy, register two important Outlook files. Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 OLE32.DLL
Do the same for INETCOMM.DLL

3. If no joy, an addin could be interfering. Disable Outlook Addins.  Go to Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > Addin Manager or COMM/Addins and disable the addins.

If you cannot open Outlook, do a search for and rename extend.dat file.

4. Check if an external program running in the background is interfering with Outlook. Check Firewall, antivirus and other security programs, Yahoo and Google toolbars, and desktop search programs. Disable these programs one at a time.

5. Repair Outlook. With Outlook open, go to Help > Detect and Repair.

6. If no joy, repair Outlook with this free utility -  OLfix

7. If no joy, create a new Outlook profile.

8. If no joy, reinstall Outlook.  Go to Add/Remove Programs and highlight Microsoft Office. Click on Install/Uninstall.  A menu will pop allowing you to choose repair or reinstall.

Hope this helps!

Hi Thanks for all the suggestions,

But I was not able to get it resolved . Outlook version is 2003. I reeinstaled Outlook, Recreated Profile
after deleting all pst files e.t.c . I am able to login to webmail but .So it could not be a server end issue right ?  Would going for outlook service pack 3 give a fix ?

SP3 may fix the problem.  Create a system restore point before installing SP3.
