1.    Click Start->Run (Windows key + R key) and type Outlook /safe->click ok.

2.    Try to reply to an email and check if that works.

3.    If Outlook /safe works try to disable the add-ins by clicking on File->options->Add-ins.

4.    Click go on COM-Add-ins.

5.    Clear the check box for all add-ins.

Try running outlook in safe mode and see if it is still an issue. This will tell you if there is an add-in that is causing it.
Windows Key + R for the run line
outlook /safe

How do I do this on  a Outlook 2003 machine.  I was told it was 2010, but it's 2003.

If the above does not work, try rebuilding the profile..

Rebuild the outlook profile. Do this by closing outlook and going to "drive:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook'". Look for the xxxx.ost file. Rename to xxxx.ost.old. Restart Outlook and it will recreate the profile.

Good luck!

2003 should be the same. Try 'outlook.exe /safe' if 'outlook /safe' doesn't work. It shouldn't make a difference though. Leave off the single quotes!
