Welcome to CF!!

What problems are you having and when you send/receive do you get any error messages? Can you log into the Webmail function and verify that there are indeed messages waiting to be downloaded?

Do you get send/receive errors or just nothing comes through?

Example, can you log into Yahoo! or whatever email provider you have on the web and verify that there's mail waiting to be downloaded and it is in fact Outlook that has the problem?

You can certainly do that but let's trouble shoot the above before we go there.

i was able to email myself something to my yahoo account and saw it n read it and everything and i replied to it and never got nething since yesterday, n (fyi) im helping this law firm with there computer issues (outlook) and tried every forum looking for an answer trying to figure this out so they really need there mail coming in which hasnt since last week, and i have a copy of ms word, excel, etc. that i can reinstall for them too see if that might fix the problem so im doing a backup of there things from outlook, would i have to do the same for word, and excel files that they have or are they safe? just until i reinstall ms package

and no, no errors what so ever. happening to another computer as well

They should have a MS Office 2007 CD that came with the computer(s). Use that as it's the legal way to go.

Although I haven't run into this error before, I don't know the exact issue but a reinstall of the programs may fix it. Make sure that you uninstall, then run a registry cleaner, like CCleaner, to get rid of all the unused MS Office registry keys to make sure that there's truly a clean installation.

You're correct, the files won't delete when you uninstall the application.

Yup

Yes, that will cause a problem. Do they have a 2003 CD as well? You may have to install 03 and then 07 Upgrade.
