Yesterday(March 3rd.) I inadvertently removed (via Add/Remove) Microsoft Office 2003 and hence lost my Outlook e-mail account. System Restore didn't work(I tried several-one on March 2nd. and several in February) so I created a new restore point thus losing all previous restore points(I didn't know this would happen).Can anyone help me to get back Office 2003 and hopefully my Outlook e-mail account.Also how do I configure Outlook as my e-mail account if I cannot restore it?
I removed Office 2003 from my computer completely(the desktop shortcuts even disappeared) and installed Office XP PRO.It it the Outlook in this program which gives me the message 'Unable to open your e-mail default folders'
There is a backward incomatibility going from 2003 back to XP Office. I also had a problem doing this. If I remember rightly all the folders are there but you need to copy the contents manually to the default folders and then delete the unused ones. Either that or import the folders from the 2003 Outlook.pst
