  • Error message starting outlook

    So sick of outlook! I am running outlook 2000 on exchange server environment. When user brings up outlook he gets error message

    Errors in background synchronization. In most cases, further information available in synchronization log in the deleted items folder.

    Well i looked in there. It says it has to do with problems synchronizing. Synchronzing is off! I have checked and double checked.

    I have run a repair, i have uninstalled and reinstalled. I have turned on synch and resynch and still get the error. I have updated all the office updates and windows xp updates. I am at my wits end. No idea why I am getting this.

    Any suggestions appreciated

    Go to C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook and there's a outlook.ost (or whatever the name of the ost) and delete the ost.

    Then try to turn on synchronization for outlook and see if it fix the problem
