Help!

When I try to open Outlook it keeps asking me to create a new profile and
prompts me for a profile name. I hit cancel and then I get an error that
says 'no profiles have been created. To create a new profile, use the Mail
icon in the Control Panel.' Then I hit OK and it says 'cannot start
Microsoft Office Outlook. Unable to open the Outlook window. The server is
not available. Contact your administrator if this condition persists.'

What I did today was download the trial version of MS OneNote 2003. In
using it I was in the PERSONAL folder under MY NOTEBOOK (I think that's what
it's called) and used the TRAVEL tab. When I chose to CLOSE it (not thinking
it would DELETE the project I was working on) everything disappeared. Under
HELP I chose something about repair/restoring and then chose to to restore to
original without saving customizations.

Is this what deleted my profile? My Outlook with all my
INBOX/CALENDAR/NOTES/TASKS etc is gone. When I create a new profile none of
my stuff is there.

Help!

I don't know what to call my new profile. I never had to SET UP a profile
before, so what was the original one called?
