Office 2007 Outlook won't open for emails

  dangerus1 14:06 11 Oct 2012

I have bought a netbook for browsing instead of having to go upstairs to where my desktop is situated. I installed Office 2007 as I have this on my desktop and I wanted to set my emails on the netbook the same as on the desktop. When I tried to open Outlook I got the message

Configuring Outlook Accounts (in a box in top L/H corner) - Cannot open your default email folders. the information could not be opened. - OK

When I click on OK Outlook shuts down. Everything else in Office works OK. Could this be that the desktop Outlook account has been made the default handler and if so how can I change it?

Hope someone on here can help. ;(

I meant to say made the default mail account on my desktop.

OS Windows 7 It is the first time run and the actual message is "cannot open your default email folders. the information store could not be opened" I can't look in Outlook to see if it is compatibility mode as it closes down after pressing OK.

What are profile/ost/pst files, excuse my ignorance.

I will have a look at the links you provided.
