User started a course and it used a blackboard ap of some sort.
He loaded win Live for what ever reason, his .pst is now corrupted.

Ive to call on site soon.

I can scanpst.exe and probably fix it.

Going forward can he use both win live and outlook?

There should be no problem using both. There is (or used to be) a connector for outlook so you could use your hotmail live accounts within outlook.

I have both installed and running on my desktop computer (for over a year) and they do not interfere with each other. I do not see any feature of Live Mail that would corrupt Outlook.  It is possible the user tried to import their Outlook, but that should not damage Outlook. I would look for a different cause. ...
