I have Outlook 2003 runing under Windows7
I created a .pst file to import email contacts to Yahoo email. This file worked well and I had it saved to the desktop, then I deleted it. Now, whenever I open Outlook I get a dialog box labeled PERSONAL FOLDERS that says c:\users\cedar\desktop\backup.pst could not be found. When I select OK, a new dialog box opens CREATE/OPEN PERSONAL FOLDERS and then wants me to create a personal folder with a password. When I look for the original file I get a CANT BE FOUND message. I have gone through many steps to cure this and find no mention of problems in the MS help forums nor have I seen any special instructions for deleting a personal file folder.
How do I get rid of these dialog boxes? It's become annoying.
