Outlook 2003 email account gone

  1. While trying to fix an issue with selecting text, I got a .cab error that has now been fixed.

    However, now when I open Outlook, it is asking to establish a new email account, as if I am a first time user. i can't access the existing email account, and all of the emails, folders etc. An archive.pst file still exists and by the size appears to contain all emails, folders etc.

    Does anyone know how I can locate and reinstate the existing email account to access the existing emails etc.?

    If this is not possible, can a new account be established and the existing emails, folders etc. in the archive .pst file imported?

    Thanks,

    Hotchi

    Yes, I'd say your best option is to do that. Luckily you still have the previous PST file
