Outlook.pst cannot be accessed

Hi Again. No doubt I will be back to ask another question in a day or two, as things come in threes, and this is problem number two.

In Outlook (2003) when trying to access my sent emails folder, or drafts etc, I get the following;

The file c:\Documents and Settings\Neil J\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst is in use and could not be accessed. Close any application that is using this file, and then try again.

I have tried as soon as I have booted up with nothing else running and get the same error. Done a Detect and Repair and still get the same error.

Any suggestions?

As always, many thanks in advance for your time and your trouble.

A cheeky bump in case this has been missed.

I had to uninstall and reinstall all my email accounts as well as Office. Sorted now though.

Thanks VoG.
