After adding a new email account, I find I cannot open Outlook in MS Office University 2010. When I attempt to open the application, it hangs on the 'Loading profiles' screen, and I see a dialog box asking for an Exchange Server and mailbox name. If I cancel this, I see an error message: "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. The information store cannot be opened." Neither of the accounts I added were institutional ones requiring Exchange Server information. An attempt to repair the program from the "Uninstall or change a program" screen in Control Panel has failed.

Try to edit your profil
Eg remove unwanted folders there or correct them

Try the tool olfix to repair your profile

Good luck

I have deleted the profile 'Outlook'. I can now open MS Outlook 2010, but deleting the profile means I will have to set up my accounts on it again. However, this should not be too much of a problem. Thank you very much for your help; I am most grateful :).
