I updated my outlook by moving data files from a different location on my computer to the Outlook data files, and not I am told that the data files cannot be found for the purposes of receiving and sending.

Open Outlook and look in File, Account Settings. The location of the files should be in the DATA tab.

If the locations are the old locations, make a note, close Outlook and move the data files back.

The files should live in Documents\Outlook Files
