    Have you tried to look on your HD for the missing MAPI32.dll?

    It belongs in WinNT\System32 when using XP.

    Just out of curiousity, did you remove Office 2003 beta before installing Outlook XP?


    Did you install any other applications after installing Outlook XP?

    I took out Office 2003 and then reinstalled XP, but I'm not sure I restarted after taking out '03, would that have done it

    Unless the program asks you to reboot, I dont find it necessary. :)

    Here's something I would try.

    Backup any mail that you'd like to keep. Un-install Outlook XP, Reboot, and Re-install Outlook XP.

    Doesnt sound efficient but could work.
