Recently using Outlook 2000 SR1 when I try to start Word as my email editor, Outlook invariably hangs up.

Some intensive disk activity takes place, which then peters out.

I have only Outlook showing as an Application in the Task Manager. However MS Word does appear as a process.

If I force End Outlook I get a DDE Server warning.

Has anyone seen this?

Is there an easy way around this?

I have tried Detect and Repair to no avail.. In fact I am worried that this may have made things worse!

In Hope...! <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>
