When I click on the MS Outlook icon on the dock, I get the flash screen but then it shuts down. Prior to this it was working, but then I ran out of power and the system shut down. I think it was OK when I restarted, but can't really be sure as I'm always on more than one computer and don't quite remember.

Any advice?

I started clicking around, and tried Option <click> and it opened a "Repair main identity" database utility. I ran that and it worked. That was pretty lucky for me.

That was the correct procedure. When your MBP ran out of power and shut down, that corrupted the Outlook Identity Data Base. Yes, you were lucky the repair worked.

Never mind lucky that it worked. I was lucky I found it, and I figured it couldn't hurt to run it once I did. The big problem is that I'm on my own with my mac at work. I have one of the few out of about 30,000 computers, almost all Lenovo.

Oh, I remember those days well. Working for the US government as a computer tech for many years, the word was... you'll never get in trouble for buying IBM. (Now Lenovo.) We had about that many PS2s plus several main frames at one time. Kept everyone busy.
