Windows 7: Outlook Data File Password

02 Apr 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro 32 bit
Outlook Data File Password

When I try to open my 2010 Oulook the following window opens: Heading - "Outlook data file password." Message - "Type the password for [my e-mail address]"
I cannot change any settings in Outlook, everything is blank except for the window described above. I have tried all the passwords I know I could have or usually use and nothing works. There is no option to type in a username. I do not use an exchage server, only the POP and SMTP settings.
I have Windows 7 Pro 32 bit loaded with Office 2010 Home & Business.
What is causing this problem, and how do I solve it?
Many thanks

Your PST could be corrupt. I would suggest running the Inbox Repair tool ScanPST located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14.

Alternatively you could go to the following link and run the Microsoft Fix It instead.
