Start outlook without Exchange [message #439586] Wed, 05 November 2008 11:29 Go to next message

Can I start outlook without connecting to my Exchange server? Each time I
attempt the "work offline" option I get the following message

"Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The
set of folders cannot be opened. The information store count not be
opened."

I am pretty positive my Outlook pst file is not corrupt. A week ago I lost
the connection to the server for a few hours and received the same message.
As soon as the exchange server was back online everything worked fine.

But I cannot start Outlook at all now to look at existing emails and emails
received on different accounts ( non Exchange ) because of the above
message.

Thanks,
Gary

The problem is I cannot get into Outlook to enable offline access.

I have a PST file because I have multiple accounts. One account is an
exchange account and the 2nd account is POP3 account.

So if I understand correctly I cannot do anything until my Exchange server
comes back online?

No, you can set the pst as default delivery and the pop account as default
to get into outlook - that should let outlook load so you can set it to work
offline - just remember to change the settings back before you connect to
exchange and set exchange to work offline so its not a problem in the
future.

If it still won't open, copy the profile and delete the exchange acct from
the copied profile - this is also done in control panel, mail. Set it to
always ask which profile to choose when opening. (Or do it instead of
changing the accounts around.)

There is no relationship between the number of accounts and the number of
PSTs.

Thanks for the help. I was able to get into Outlook. Today our Exchange
server is back online. I've turned "cache mode" on so I should not have
this problem in the future if the Exchange server goes offline.

Agreed. But since I have both Exchange accounts and POP accounts I knew I
would have a PST file.
