In the \appdata\local\microsoft\outlook

rename the whole "outlook" folder - it should scythe out all the cached settings etc and allow you to set up a new config.

Have you tried this on a different machine with the same user account? If this works might be the windows profile on that machine.

Also try logging into the same computer where the issue is happening with another account as well and see what happens.

My guess is Windows profile.

hi,
It seems your outlook data file is not recognized on MS outlook or OST file is corrupted. You can try following steps:

- Repair broken ost file using scanpst.exe (file location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\SCANPST.EXE)
- Rename your old ost file and recreate mail profile. (file location: C:\MyLocalData\myname\Outlook\myname.ost)
- Check if Outlook is running in compatibility mode:
                            *Close Outlook.
                            *Browse to the location mentioned below:
             For Win8 32 bit:
                            *C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15
             For Win8 64 bit:
                            *C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15
                            * Right click on Outlook.exe< Properties< Compatibility
                            *Uncheck the box Run this Program in Compatibility Mode, Make sure you also click on the option change settings for all users tab at the bottom of the same screen.
                            *Click on Apply and Ok.
                            *Open Outlook and check if it works.

Good luck

Just went through the error, it seems your Outlook ost file has been corrupt. However, there are lot of tools available for ost repair, but I believe scanpst is smart enough to repair ost file.

Try this utility, this utility is designed to resolve various critical errors in Outlook files.

Best,

There also appeared to be an issue on the domain for this PC. Shortly after this error cropped up the trust relationship was broken. After running the suggested solutions I still had some issues but after removing and re-adding the PC to the domain, everything started working again.
