What I have already tried:
repair installation of Outlook
created new profile and pointed to the data file

Non of the above have worked. Nothing shows up at all in contacts, calendar, or mail. The pst file is 800,000 +kb.

Can anyone help?

This worked for me previously, no idea why though:

Close Outlook, rename the .pst file to .old or whatever, then open Outlook, let it recreate a new .pst file. Close Outlook and then rename your original file back to .pst, overwriting the newly created one. Open Outlook again & see if it's recognised.

Hope that makes sense. As I say, it worked for me but only had to do it once so I don't know if it's a recognised repair, but you lose nothing by trying.
