Hi World! I have Outlook 2010 (32bit) and have been using it flawlessly until yesterday when I couldn't even open it! Managed to overcome that problem by insert disc/ repair, and created new profiles, linking them to previous outlook pst. files. Send/receive all working fine! Now, I select reading pane under 'view' to 'bottom' coz that's where I like to see stuff, but no matter what I seem to do, when I close Outlook and re-open it defaults to the reading pane being at the side again. Frustrated , or what? Any ideas please?
