Outlook 2007 User with Exchange 2007 may be corrupt?

I have a user that her email slows down and then basically stops working. It does a " Outlook failed to start correctly last time. Starting outlook in safe mode will help you correct or isolate a startup problem in order to successfully start the program. Some Functionality may be disabled in this mode." If I wait, I get a MS Send Error report! Is this a local PC issue or problem in the Exchange?

    Accepted Solution

    You may have some bad addin installed in Outlook.

    Go to Tools > Trust Center > Addin to check for all the addins installed on the machine.
    Disable any unwanted addin and it may help you to get this resolved.

    This usually points to a corrupt OST file.  Do you know if the user is currently in cached mode?  If so, I would recommend closing Outlook, deleting the OST, and opening Outlook, forcing the OST to be rebuilt from the server.  Another option is the try a clean profile switch for Outlook.

    From "run"  ->  outlook.exe /cleanprofile

    Check the OST (you have one even if not in cached mode - for the calendar).
    Also check if any PST files are attached that are not on the local drive. While people often have server-based PST files they are not supported by outlook.
