For many users, Outlook can be a single point of contact between their computer and the Internet. As a massive communications and time management tool, Outlook is perfectly positioned to act as a contacts management and scheduling tool as well as an email and RSS client.
That’s quite a lot of data.
Now, people get quite frustrated when Outlook doesn’t run as intended, but when there are emails flying into a typical inbox from all around the planet, from different computer systems and different email creation methods (desktop clients, mobile phones, tablets, webmail) and via thousands of different server configurations, it should come as no surprise to find that occasionally some data does get a little bit mixed up.
One common way in which this can be reflected in the performance of Outlook is when you find your cannot start the client, or that the Outlook windows will not open even though the application is listed as running in Task Manager.
So how do we resolve these issues?
