ms outlook 2003 - .pst issue
Posted on 2012-08-22
hi originally my host xp pc was able to send/receive email normally via my exchange 2003 server.
later on i had a profile issue, in that 2 separate user account profiles were being mixed up when the host pc was logging off and the 'synchronize' part took place so i just clicked ok for the host pc to log off as normal, although logging on was also ok!!
in order to resolve issue, i removed host xp off domain
carried out clean install of xp on host pc
installed office 2003 custom for 'word & outlook'
joined host xp pc to domain with admin account
logged on successfully with previous user domain account successfully
confirmed internet access successful
started outlook 2003 via control panel/mail icon in order to link to exchange server 2003 successfully & locating user account as normal.
on double clicking outlook to open up my users email account it prompts:
"the file c:\documents and settings\peterk1396\local settings\application data\microsoft\outlook\outlook.pst could not be found" & when i click ok to clear this message, another one states:
"could not start microsoft office outlook. unable to open the outlook windows. the set of folders could not be opened. the server is not available."
note: im thinking somehow i need to refresh/sysnchronize my clean install user account with previously created 'aduc/exchange user account' in order for this issue to clear!!'
can anyone help with this ?
