I came back from vacation and Outlook 2003 won't open!

  1. Prior to leaving Outlook 2003 worked fine. I took my computer to have it 'tuned up' so the rest of the system works great but not Outlook. I get the following message:
    "Cannot open Microsoft Office Outlook. Unable to open the Outlook Window. The set of folders could not be opened. The server is not available."
    I looked in the control panel mail folder and found the following file (c:\documentsandsettings\localsettings\applicationdata\microsoft\outlook\outlook.pst) did not have anything in it but I don't know how to re-direct the mail that is trying to be delivered to this file.

    Does anyone know what I need to do to correct this?
