Typically this is a database error. Try holding down option key when it opens. If it brings up a database utility, click the + create a new identity, such as your name and then select it and click the gear at the bottom of the page and make it default. Then reopen Outlook.

If that doesn't work, create a new account on your computer and see if opens with the new account.

I have created a new user account and tried launching Outlook. It opens fine.
But I really cannot modify or delete my current user account because i have lot of application preferences, settings, files etc...

Is it worth uninstalling and re-installing again?
