Default MAPI32.DLL error running Outlook 2003

I made the mistake of installing the trial version of Office 2007 on my new
Vista machine. I uninstalled it, and installed Office 2003. Word and Excel
are running great, but I get the MAPI32.DLL error whenever I try to run
Outlook.

I've seen the messages about uninstalling and reinstalling. I've even tried
using the Windows cleanup utility suggested in another thread. I can't
figure out how to delete the three MAPI32.DLL. No go. I can't figure out
permissions, which is my question.

My comment is this. I did delete the other file suggested in a thread, the
MSMAPI32.DLL flie, and I was allowed to delete this one. Once gone, Outlook
started up.

Default MAPI32.DLL error running Outlook 2003

Hi Pete: I'm having the exact same problem. However, I searched for the file
you mention below, and it is not found on my hard drive. Any further
suggestions?

Thanks!

If after running Outlook 2007 beta you get the error MSMAPI32.dll is missing or corrupt, find and rename MSMAPI32.dll to .old.

****DO NOT**** rename MAPI32.dll.

Start Outlook 2003 again and it should run fine.

I don't have any other suggestion. I'd check to make sure you searched
through the whole C drive and that MSMAPI32.DLL was spelled with an I not a
1. Other than that, I'm out of information. Pete
