Welcome TheStig22 to SF,
As another Top Gear fan have you tried using the Office diagnostics tool and running it?

Hi, Stig (Mark)! Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Have you tried disabling any add-ons you might have in Outlook to see if the issue persists?

Disable them one by one until the issue goes away. We can trouble shoot from there.

Mark,
I can only speak for Office 2007 but I can't believe that this feature would be removed in 2010. I find mine in the Office suite list of icon in the All Programs list for Office.

Don't see it on my end, linnemeyerhere:

Neither do I see it in the list of applications in the Program files, Office14 folder:

Perhaps the application name is something not too evident in the Office14 folder? Kinda like "ScanPST.exe" which doesn't show up on the Start menu, All Programs list?

Wow I guess MS has perfected things to the point you no longer need tools/Office diagnostics?

LOL! I doubt it. The reason for the change, or omission, I don't know. To be honest, I never even noticed it on Office 2007 but, then, I only used it for a few months before going to Office 2010.

May I ask you how you like 2010 from '07. I can't imagine that the changes are that dramatic?

I like it much better, linnemeyerhere, but then, I have to admit, I got used to the ribbon interface and wanted it in Outlook, as well (missing in 2007).

It's much more responsive and I like the 64 bit version which, as I recall, is not available in 2007.
