Oh, it's just across town and with what they pay for mileage, it didn't
break the bank (and heck, I got out of here for a while <BG>).

Outlook is in the Startup folder so when I rebooted and logged in as this
user, it pops up with the config/setup for Outlook. And it did that fine. I
just had a brain fart and didn't think to save the PST first. I mean who
would think searching the registry for every reference to this "gone" user
and replacing it with the new user, would do something like this with now
warning or something ? It also lost the file locations settings in Word,
Excel and Power Point.

And along another path - can you believe this is 2003 and if you want to
change the file locations in Word you can click and browse to do it but in
Excel and Power Point you have to key it in ! ! ! This is with Office XP
Pro. We reported this to MS years ago at my last job with Office 97 and it
STILL has not been fixed. We were a HUGE network shop and the paths to a
users data directory could be lengthy. Unreal that this has not been
programmed consistently across the Office suite in this length of time...

The company paid for you to travel to the remote site and to set the PC up? 
Wouldn't it have been cheaper to just buy him a new PC?  

ah, the wonders of Windows.  :) 


Can you reinstall Outlook?
