Outlook cannot find pst file

I believe my pst file was corrupted.  Outlook would not send/receive correctly.  I thought I would just uninstall/reinstall Office, get rid of the old pst file and create a new mail account.  The problem is, I have uninstalled/reinstalled twice,and even manually deleted the old corrupt pst file.  When I open Outlook after a new installation, it says Outlook cannot find pst file...  Are there some temp files somewhere that also need to be deleted?  What am I doing wrong?

If you're just looking to start fresh -- you can always go into Control Panel -> Mail and then delete the Outlook profile and re-create it.

Hello -

Are there currently any older versions of Office still installed on the system? It appears that you are running Outlook 2007, is that correct?
