Outlook repair steps
- Try restarting your computer. In most cases, this fixes the issue!
- If that doesn’t do the trick, try clearing up the Deleted Items folder in the email client. Open View menu and select Folder List. From here, right click on the Deleted Items folder and choose to Empty Deleted Items Folder. Once that’s done, re-launch Outlook and see if it’s fixed.
- The Inbox Repair Tool might also be able to help. For this, click Start->Control Panel->Classic View->Mail->Services->Personal Folders->right click and then choose Properties. Once here, make a note of the path information somewhere.
Now click on Start->Accessories->System Tools->Inbox Repair Tool. Type in the path, noted down earlier, under Drives and then click Start to, uh, start off the scan. Once done, re-launch Outlook and see if things are okay.
- If all of the above fail, then you can try creating a new PST file. For this, go to the Services tab (from last step), choose Personal Folders and then click Remove.
Now, click Add and then choose Personal Folders. Click OK and give a suitable name for the .pst file. Open and then press OK.
Well, that should get your Outlook fixed. If not, contact a proper Outlook repair personnel as soon as possible!
