Mailto:address link causes error
Whenever I click on a MAILTO:address link on a web page, I now receive the
Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Can't create the item.
I'm using a fully-patched Outook 2003 from Office 2003.
Anyone know why this error is produced, or how to fix it?
Thanks for your help.
Is Outlook open? Is it your default email client? Does running Detect and
Repair fix the error?

My boss's computer uses offline mode and cached mode enabled but his .ost

space available on his C:\ drive so i moved the file over to his E: drive

I did this following instructions online which basically told me to:

Hello, I have office 2000. For some reason Outlook will
not open. I never had a problem before. I did a repair on
Office, but that did not fix it. I uninstalled office and
reinstalled it. That did not fix my Outlook. All the other
programs in Office work fine. What could be the problem
with my Outlook? Thank You.

Yesterday, I started having problems with Outlook (We use Outlook with
IMAP). Whenever I clicked on the Inbox to see if there is new mail, my PC
would stay at the X system sign for a minute or two, then I would get a
message that "Unable to display results because too many entries in the
Internet Directory match your search criteria", then I would get a message
that "The search request to the LDAP Directory Server has timed out".
The problem is that I am not even doing a search, all I am doing is checking
for new mail. Now, my Outlook session doesn't start at all.

The good folks at my office have been using Open Access IV as their
