    Reinstall Outlook - it should set up the file associations properly

    If the problem is within the files, which version of Outlook are you using - ScanPST used to be provided to repair the files, but IIRC that was a couple of versions ago.

        Does it still have a PST extension? If so, the file associations have gone wrong somewhere. If it has a different extension, what is it?
        How did you do the backup?
