Cleaning up my computer from some virus "invasions" seems to have messed up my operating copy of Microsoft Office Outlook.
[My OS is xp Pro, sp2, Office Pro 2003 enterprise edition with Hebrew multilanguage content]
The program no longer receives nor sends emails and, though I can easily access saved mails and link from then with no problem, I can't erase them.
When I attempt to erase a file I get an error message saying that errors have been detected in the file c:\Documents and Settings\....\Outlook\Outlook1.pst.
I'm advised to exit all mail programs and run the program Scanpst.exe--which I've done several times, to no avail.
Having had no choice, I've started using Outlook express (which I don't like and am not used to manipulating). It has no trouble receiving files but cannot send, access my other saved emails (from Outlook) nor can it access my address book.
I have asuspicion that somehow my system has misplaced my files, but when searching for them they aren't found and, to be quite honest, if I were to find them, I don't know where I would have to place them.
Any advice will be more than welcome.
Thanks in advance for reading this far.
