Hello,

Many things are going wrong with my Outlook 2007:

1. Reminders come in doubles!
2. Business contact manager does not start
3. It takes too long to open
4. When it is closed it stays in the memory.

I would like to reinstall it hoping that some of these problems can be
solved (some inherit in Outlook). Questions:

1. Can I just install the Outlook from Office 2007 disk
2. Will I loose my business contacts ( currently I cannot open the
database and no one can help me on this I posted before)
3. Can I save email account information from the existing installation
and transfer rhea new one.
4. When I install the new one how can I introduce the existing pst file
to the new installation?

Thank you all,

Athena

Thank you Kathleen. The double reminder and slow start problem are
resolved. I am now struggling with the BCM problem. And nobody is
helping. Is it true that reinstalling Outlook will not fix the BCM
problem? Or can I uninstall BCM and reinstall that one only?

Sincerely,

Athena
