I use WinXp Pro together with OfficeXP pro and have been using MS Outlook for some time.

Yesterday I tried to open Outlook and got the following error message 'MAPI was unable to load the information service mspst.dll. Be sure the service is correctly installed and configured'

I have tried to find this fault online but the only MS reference to it seems to relate to Win95.
I also cannot find it on any dll. download sites.

I have also run Registry Mechanic without any luck.

Can anyone tell me please how to repair or replace this file?

Will I have to run the XP installation disk again and get it from there?

If you click on the Help menu in Outlook, then select Detect and Repair. This should bring up a wizard that will repair any corrupt office files.

You should try doing a System Restore to before this problem happened. Hopefully this should sort it out.
