I am having a weird situation with Microsoft Outlook 2003 that I have not found a resolution for. This user is using a pop3 mailbox with PST files.
When I try open Outlook I receive an "Operation Failed" error message and Outlook does not open. Then, if I open Outlook a second time, the client opens normally.
This happens EVERY second time I open Outlook. Outlook is working normally otherwise.
If I open Outlook immediately after receiving the error, the program opens successfully. I am able to compose e-mail, send/receive, check contacts, access calendar, etc.
I have installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) on a Corsair SSD-disk and then installed MS Office 2003 Suite (32-bit). Office SP3 has also been installed. When the error showed up the first time I uninstalled the whole Office Suite and reinstalled it again. The error disappeared for a while, but now it is back again. Running Microsoft Security Essentials as antivirus tool.
There is no Exchange Server involved so the http://support.microsoft.com/kb/820111
does not apply at all. Running "Outlook.exe /resetnavpane" did not help either.
