Re: OUTLOOK 2003 WILL NOT OPEN?/
THIS IS MY BEST OFFER. IF YOU HAVE BEEN USING THIS PROGRAM FOR SOMETIME NOW, I FEEL THAT THE PROGRAM HAS PROBABLY DEGRADED AND THIS IS CAUSING THE PROBLEMS. YOUR BEST SOLUTION IS PROBABLY TO TRY TO EITHER REPAIR THE PROGRAM OR DELETE AND RE-INSTALL A CLEAN VERSION WITH THE LATEST UPDATES. SHOWING MORE THAN ONE PROGRAM IN TASK MANAGER USUALLY MEANS THAT YOU HAVE TRIED MORE THAN ONCE TO CLOSE THE PROGRAM. IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE DUPLICATE PROGRAMS, RUN SEARCH>OUTLOOK AND SEE HOW MANY SHOW UP. IF MORE THAN ONE YOU CAN DELETE IT FROM THERE. ALSO, YOU CAN DELETE DUPLICATE FILES ETC. HOPE THIS HAS HELPED.

There are a few simple steps you can take to keep your Outlook running smoothly. If your Outlook is slow and unstable, it can put a serious drain on your productivity and even elevate the stress level. So take a few moments to get it shape.
1. Keep your PSTs at a reasonable size With Outlook 2003 and 2007 you can create “new style” PST files which do not have the old 2GB limit. However, for best performance, we still recommend keeping your PST files relatively small and not letting them grow too much above 1GB.
2. Disable Add-ins you are not using
3. Compact your PST files
4. Enable Cached Exchange Mode If you are using an Exchange-based mail account, enabling Cached Exchange Mode will likely improve Outlook responsiveness.
6. Keep an eye on your Desktop Search Indexers Using products such as Windows Desktop Search and Google Desktop Search is a great way to be able to quickly find email messages
7. Keep your computer up to date with patches and Service Packs
8. Reset Outlook cache files
9. Disable RSS feeds in Outlook •Open “Tools->Options->Other->Advanced Options” •Uncheck “Sync RSS Feeds to the Common Feed List
In thsi case try to open outlook in safe mode
the command is
click on start
if that works fine then there is some issue with the addin
then for thsi close outlook
hkey local machine - software -microsoft-office - outlook - under outlook expand addin
then highligfht add in ione by one and on the right hand side modify the regisrt from any other value to 0 , do all thsi with all the addin and then try to open outlook
Outlook has bad memory management, and this happens often. The only way to relieve this is to save the attachments to your computer harddrive first, and then open it, instead of opening it from the email directly.
Its a pain, but its the cost of using Microsoft products.
type in run "chkdsk /r" then enter "y"
then restart the system.then it check hadrdsk for bad indexing and recover.then wait till windoe\ws .
then try to open out look .otherwise uninstall ms office then reinstall if u have setup.
You need to open outlook,
Click Tools --> Accounts (Sometimes Services)
Highlight the account and click properties or change
Now look at the advanced settings --> there is an option to delete emails from the server which you have to set to stop repeat downloads. Set tis to 5 days as your ISP is set to keep for 4 days.
As you have not set this value each time outlook tries to download any emails left on the server,
Well, it has to with your intrenet connection, if you are using a dial-up connection, try and disconnect and reconnect and if you are using otherwise like say LAN or Wireless just disconnect and make sure you are properly connected. if this did not work, try and open you MS-DOS and type this
