    I've installed Office 2003 Pro SP3 on a new Thinkpad including Outlook,
    everything else seems to work except Outlook. When I try to open Outlook I
    get "Unable to open your default e-mail folders. Outlook could not start
    because a data file could not be found. To add a data file, such as a
    personal folder file, double click the Mail icon in Window Control Panel."

    When I go to control panel, mail and try to add a data file that box doesn't
    show or do anything and when I close the box I get 'unknown error,
    code:0x80070002' and then when I close Mail I get error code: 0x8000ffff'
