I was having problems with word so I reinstalled office. Word is working fine now. All of my documents are there. However, all of my emails and contacts were deleted from outlook. Is there a way to retrieve them?

Microsoft Outlook stores all of your email messages, contacts, calendar entries, notes, tasks, etc. inside a single file with a .pst file extension.

Default location for Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 - drive:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook and for Vista - drive:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook. Search for all .pst files there or with Search For Files or Folders and open each in Outlook (File - Open - Outlook Data File...) until you find your lost data.

Unfortunately upgrading or reinstalling Microsoft Outlook can result of deletion this data. In this case you have to use some recovery programs, but first try this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287497 and don't save any new data on to the drive after you have lost deleted emails!
