Outlook 2003 says I don’t have appropriate permission

Try checking the properties of the these files:

outlook.srs
outlook.dat
views.dat

or any others in the following location:

\Document and Settings \ <Username> \ Application Data \ Microsoft \ Outlook

It could be these files are read-only and you need to remove that (right click the file, select Properties and make sure Read-only is not checked).

  • Just out of interest, what are you trying to do when you get that error?

    Outlook needs full rights to these files when sending or receiving email. Changing from read-only to Read Write allows Outlook to modify them when mail is being transfered.
