I keep having problems with emails that have attachments, and it doesn't
matter what type of attachment. Tells me that olmapi32.dll is incompatible
with microsoft outlook. How can I correct this? I tried to open my previous
version of 2007 outlook, but when I did the upgrade that dropped the 2007,
unless I delete the 2010, which I don't want to do. What can I do now?
Because this is a beta, you should post in the beta forum:

I am using postfix as MTA and storing pst file on server. But everytime
there is a network problem (ie. disconnect), outlook will create a new
local pst file(coz it can't find the network path to the pst file).
Because of that i had to manually go to reconfigure the default
delivery to the correct path (after network back on line).
I just want to know if there is a way to aviod outlook to not create a
pst file while user still able to open outlook? Or is there a way to
allow outlook automatically look for the pst on network (when LAN

Several people here seem to have the problem I had with Outlook 2003, which
consisted in Outlook not saving the chosen theme (you pick a custom theme,
save your settings, go to another folder, go back to Today and the standard
theme is back) and not showing any images in the Today page.
Since there are as of now no postings which provide the solution to the
problem, I'll report what I read in the german Outlook newsgroup and which
worked for me:

I have Office 2000 on my computer and the Outlook

machine. As a result, I am not able to use the email
portion of Office which would be very helpful to me. As
an alternate, I have been using Netscape.
The Office SW was loaded on my computer by my previous
employer. When I left that company, I requested that I be
given my computer and the related SW. I have a signed
note from the CEO transferring all the hardware and SW to
me. However, I do not have the CD to reload the Office SW
to repair the damage portions.

I'm so confused after reading everything about .pst files and backing them

Have a user who is working on a spreadsheet.
When she saves her changes, and exits out of the spreadsheet, it creates a

When excel saves the file, it saves it as a temporary file with a funny name (8
If the save is successful, xl will delete the original (or rename it to its

I found that when ever a new profile is created in outlook a new *.srs (send receive settings)file exists. The *.srs file contains hard coded paths to the local cached pst files in documents and settings \blah\blah.
Answer: Close outlook, simply delete all the *srs files from %userprofile%\application data\Microsoft\Outlook.
EG C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.srs
When outlook is re-opened it will create a new *.srs file (* = the name of your profile in outlook)

This message was originally posted on 1/26/04, but received no response.
I'm running Outlook 2003 (11.5608.5703) under WinXP SP1. My Outlook.pst
file is a local "Personal Folders File (97-2002)," 127 MB after a compress.
The Office 2003 installation was an upgrade from Office 2000. Shortly after
installation, I ran the Inbox Repair Tool, more or less out of curiosity.
It found and repaired errors. I ran it again a few days later, and again it
found errors. In fact, almost every time I run it, it finds errors.
Is this normal behavior? For the record, I do NOT abruptly power...PST file won't open #2
I reformatted my hard disk and saved (exported) PST files
before doing so - but now office 2003 won't reload the PST

even though I can see the PST extension. It simply
refuses to open the old files even though I composed them
as an exported file from outlook 2003 before reformatting
I tried pstscan.exe and various proprietary recovery tools

I am having trouble deleting things from Outlook 2000. If I look at my Outlook.pst
file, the size is 1,329,856 kb (pretty big!?). If I move some sent items
to a folder on another drive - say I move 40 megs of files, check the Sent
Items folder and confirm that they are gone, check Deleted Items and make
sure that they are not there. Log out of Outlook and back in and look at
my outlook.pst size, it does not change - still 1,329,856 kb! It continues
to grow with every email that I send and receive. Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for your help.

My current is about 10 meg. I suggest you may want to archive some of
the older data as Money does slow down with larger files.
My file is about 50Mb. I have not found a compelling reason to archive.

Is there a Registry script that he might be able to download and apply

Is there a more suitable approach?
