Hi,
I have a new client who uses Windows XP with Office 2003.  His Outlook will not open.  The only way for Outlook to open, albeit slowly, is to first open Word and type something on a blank page, then Outlook can be opened
Any ideas on how this can be solved (other than installing newer versions)
Thanks
Jeannie
