"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you tried uninstalling / reinstalling Outlook?

The following is a link with a good explanation on removing Outlook.

To reinstall, use your MSOffice installation CD.

Hope this is what you are looking for and helps.
I advise attempting to REPAIR Outlook before removing and reinstalling.

1. Insert your Office 2003 CD

2. Select option to REPAIR your Office Installation

3. Test Outlook, see if it is working properly.

Is there any other way apart from Repairing & Reinstalling because i dont have the CD with me??
• Check if the latest updates are installed.
• Try to delete and recreate a new Outlook profile.
 However the best option is reinstalling outlook.
Go to

Control Panel > Add Remove Programs

Select Office

Is there an option there for REPAIR or REINSTALL that does not ask you to insert the CD?

try to use scanpst to scan your PST file and fix possible errorrs inside it.
