I just installed Office 2010 and Outlook displays " update in Progress" never stops. I had support and reinstalled the program with the same frustrating result. I an't get my email. Help!
Try creating a new Outlook profile using the steps mentioned in the article below and check if it works.
If new profile works fine, open your old Outlook data file.
Open Outlook in new profile->click File->open->Outlook data file->select Outlook.pst and click open.
