Hi,

Couple of things, are you using pst or ost?  I am wondering if you have a skewed pst or something?  If it is a pst, is it a 2003 pst or a more current one?  Try running this through it:

You could also try deleting outlprnt from this location:
C:\Documents and Settings\%Username%\AppData\Microsoft\Outlook
Outlook should recreate it automatically afterwards

Another thought is that there might be a printer that doesn't exist, but windows thinks it does.  However, i doubt it since excel and word are fine

When i said " there might be a printer that doesn't exist", i meant that a network printer might have existed  before and every time the print window opens, it is looking for the printer on the network address, but it doesn't respond since it isn't there any more.
