Outlook 2010 stops, closes and reopens - no error message

Not open for further replies.


I can be looking a new messages, going from new messages to junk files, or from one message to another. I can begin to create a new messaage and all of a sudden the program stops, closes, and then reopens without giving me an error message. If I was in a new message, I have lost the message, and the format that I set for viewing messages has disappeared and I have to reset it.
