Why is my MS Outlook 2003 automatically closing by itself?

Common causes:
- an add-on gone wild. Try Outlooks safe mode:
- a damaged .pst file. Rename it and see what happens if Outlook creates a new empty one.

With a new empty pst-file and in safe mode, it likely will work correctly.

I was about to give up. But at the office we lucked into a machine that never have the issues. So here's our findings. No addins and the email editor is NOT set to use Word.

Good luck!
