Hi,

Yesterday, my Outlook tried to synchronise folders and now it won't
send and receive or do anything. I tried closing it and re-opening it
and tried restarting the computer but it still goes back to attempting
to synchronise folders and still won't send and receive. Very
frustrating. Nothing like this has ever happened before.

And what Outlook version would that be with what type of mail account (pop?)
?

Locate and run scanpst.exe on your outlook data file (the *.pst) all with
outlook closed
http://www.msoutlook.info/question/77
If still no change; use your Office cd to run a repair
Finally try opening outlook using the safe switch;
Start
Run
outlook.exe /safe (note space between exe /)

OK, I tried opening Outlook in safe mode, and the same thing happens.

I located the scanpst.exe file and opened it, but don't know where to
find the outlook data file....?

My laptop is maintained by my university, so I don't have the Office CD
to run a repair. Guess I need to contact the IT people at uni.

thanks for your help though :)
