No idea what happened, but found that Outlook wouldn’t send anymore messages via GMAIL IMAP. I found this little morsel and viola… problem fixed.

  1. Exit out of Outlook 2003 on the machine with the issue
  2. Open the registry (Start->Run->type cmd->click Ok)
  3. Navigate and open the following registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security\OutlookSecureTempFolder
  4. Within the key…it should say something like  %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK3D\
  5. Highlight and delete %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK3D\
  6. Close out of the registry and open Outlook 2003!
