    Cannot open Microscoft Outlook
    I am using a MacBook Pro and Outlook 2010. 3 days ago I could not open my Outlook. I have rebooted multiple times. When I click on the Outlook icon it bounces a couple of times, but it will not open. There is not error message that accompanies this. Does anyone know who to fix this? I am desperate to get this back up and running again!!! Thanks so much in advance.

    Have you tried the database utility to see if there are issues there?

    If you did a full install of Office 2011 you should have a "Microsoft Office 2011 Other" folder in applications. Within that folder you should have Microsoft Database Utility. Run that against your mail database. The database is more than likely named "Main" and it should pop up when you start the utility.

    Thank you I found the folder - could you please describe to me how I would run that against my mail database? Would I click on Main Identity and "rebuild"?

    Yes, click the identity and choose rebuild.
