I have a newly set up Windows 2008 R2 Standard Remote desktop services server which (for just one user) I can't open Outlook 2003. It says "Unable to open your default folders. The information store could not be opened".  All other users connect to Exchange 2007 fine. I have reinstalled Outlook, recreated two diffrent profiles, installed Office 2003 SP3, excluded Outlook and Word from DEP on the server, ensured that the user is a local admin, and tried starting Outlook in Safe-mode. Driving me crazy tonight. Please help. i noticed that there was another question posted with the exact problem, but it didn't have an answer. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

I've already done that several times. It's on a 2008 Remote desktop services server. Should I possibly rename her Windows profile folder to c:\users\userold and log back in? Do you think that would help?

Jus in case it helps anyone else. I backed up/deleted the the user's profile folder under c:\users and logged back in. Once I did the issue was gone.
