MS Outlook 2003 Error Message: Files not in expected location

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Error Message when opening Outlook 2003: "Some the files in the Web page isn't in the expected location. Do you want to download them anyway?

If you are sure Web page is from a trusted source, click Yes."

When I click Yes, it shows the message again, and then clicks yes once more; the new message window opens normally.

I researched the problem and many of the forums say, "Right-click the folder that displays when you start Outlook. Choose Properties, then switch to the Home Page tab.

Clear the box for "Show home page by default for this folder." That will turn off the web page that Outlook is trying to display."

My problem is that there is no folder that displays when I start Outlook or on the desktop so I cannot implement the solution.

I have done a detect and repair as well as uninstalled/reinstalled MS Office 2003 and still have the problem.

MS Outlook 2003 Error Message: Files not in expected location


I’m not sure why uninstalling then reinstalling Microsoft Outlook 2003 did not do any good. It should restore all the configurations of the application back to default. But since it is already useless to try doing it again, I am thinking of suggesting to format your computer. But that needs too much work and would require you to install all of the applications back again.

You may also try checking your computer for any possible errors it might have. Use a disk utility application to check your system. If you don’t have one installed, use Windows disk check tool.

  1. Right-click drive C then select Properties.
  2. Click Tools tab.
  3. Click Check Now.
  4. Check Automatically fix file system errors then hit Start.

For a much thorough diagnostics on your system, use a disk utility application like Norton SystemWorks, PC Tools Performance Toolkit, or Norton Utilities 15.0, instead of using Windows disk check.

If checking your computer still didn’t do any good, try to upgrade Microsoft Outlook 2003 to a higher version if it’s not possible to replace it with the latest version.
