Unable to delete file in Outlook XP

  Desert Andy 21:34 26 Oct 2004

Dear All

Please help.

I am trying to delete old messages in my Outlook XP inbox, however, I get the message
File C:\Documents and Settings\Andy\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst could not be accessed.

I have tried reinstalling Outlook, but i get the same message.

Any ideas.

I'm not sure this is much help but is it possible to goto your Inbox, then file Import/Export and export the whole contents say to Excel or Access? If you follow your mentioned file string and delete Outlook pst it will delete all your records in all folders and then when you restart Outlook will create a new record base, last resort I would say.

Andy you mentioned that you had tried reinstalling, but have you tried Detect and Repair from Outlooks Help drop down menu?
