I try and connect to outlook and a message keeps appearing. "Cannot start

Msoft office outlook. Unable to open outlook window. The set of folders could

not be opened. The server is not available. Contact your administrator if

condition persists."

It has been taking about 10-15 attempt before this message dissapears and

outlook opens. This has been happening for about 2 weeks now.

Version of Outlook?

Type of mail account?

There are 2 common causes;

-your pst-file contains errors and need to be checked with scanpst.exe

See http://www.msoutlook.info/question/77

-You are running Outlook 2007 and have a damaged xml-file

Start Outlook with the /resetnavpane switch

See http://www.msoutlook.info/question/268

In Outlook click Tools>E-mail Accounts>Next. Examine the "Type" column. What

does it say?

My guess is that Robert gave you the answer already when he pointed you to

http://www.msoutlook.info/question/268, despite your use of Outlook 2003.

That would be the first thing I'd try.
