What To Do When The Errors Crop Up During The Outlook Startup
In this era a user can replicate the apple iCloud interface on to the control panel of an Outlook Express in Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7. It’s pretty effortless to configure and synchronize it with the Windows interface with the help of Windows control panel mail program.
As this process is an intricate one, it can often prompt various errors among which “Cannot start Outlook” is a common error. Another common error that usually gets you crazy is the “Unsupported folder” error, this normally happens due to the conflict between the type of data files. In Apple iCloud it’s a custom type of file structure whereas in Windows it’s entirely different. However, just like every other error prompt, Microsoft does have solution for these too. The following instructions should help you counter any error that may come your way.
Let’s set “.pst” data file as default one with these instructions
- Go to the “Start” and open the “Run” tab.
- Inside the Run box, just enter the command “Control panel” without quotes before hitting the “Enter” key on your keyboard.
Open the Mail Setup dialog box:
Intended for Windows 7:
- Irrespective of whether the control panel is displayed in a large or small icon, the setup menu for mail will come up when the user clicks on the “Mail” icon. Wait for a few seconds.
- If the Windows crops up the control panel with a category view, pick out the icon view mode and hit on the “mail” tab to unleash the Mail Setup box.
Designed for Windows Vista or for Windows XP:
- Check whether the control panel crept in with Classic Vie. If so, go for the “Mail” icon to bring up the Mail Setup window.
- Just like Windows 7 if the control panel is displayed in a category view, you will have to pick out the category view before accessing the “Mail” tab to pave way for the Mail Setup window.
- Access the “Show Profiles” tab from the mail setup box.
- Pick out your existing “Outlook profile” and move towards the “Properties” window.
- Get hold of the required “Data Files” from the mail setup menu.
- Access the “Data Files” tab from the Account Settings window.
- Pick out the .pst Outlook data file.
