    Outlook Hangs (XP)

    Help!! My outlook has started to Hang on opening never to open, It says that it is processing my rules, I can access my e-mail via a web based outlook but cannot get outlook to open at all. I had my whole profile reinstalled Friday by IT it worked fine for the rest of the day. But this am I get the same problem... no outlook. I do not have many e-mails in my box so it is not getting hung up because it has to process a lot... in fact now there are none.. it still hangs up.

    It is possible that somehow your Rules file has become corrupted.

    Access your Rules file - which should be in something like Documents and Settings[username]Local SettingsApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook. It has an RWZ extension. You will need to have both "Show hidden files and folders" checked and "Hide extensions for known file types" unchecked under Start|Settings|Control Panel|Folder Options|View in order to access the file.

    Move the file out of the folder and then restart Outlook.
