Question about Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 for PC

Microsoft Access 2003 crashes on ''Compact and Repair''

It happens with every database on my system. It even happens on new and empty databases, and is easily replicatable by doing these steps:

File/New/Blank database/Save/Tools/Database Utilities/Compact and Repair Database/*CRASH*: Microsoft Office has stopped working"

I also get occasional crashes while using other databases, more often then I have ever experienced with Access. Not able to pin these crashes down to a particular step though.

I use Vista SP1 with all Windows and Office 2003 patches installed. My systel has a dual boot setup, one for Vista and one for Windows XP. I can open any of my databases and compact them no problem if I boot into Windows XP.

I've researched this quite a bit and the most frequent suggestion is to copy all objects into a new database. This will not help my situation since, as mentioned earlier, new empty databases crash as well.

Thanks.

    Crashes on save or compact /repair. The problem is new but the db is not. The problem occurs on different machines and different versions of the database.

    Perhaps this is a result of a relatively recent Automatic update?

Exchange 2003 Unable to - An attempt to open the compressed file D:\Mailboxes\Mailbox Database.edb for read / write access failed because it could not be converted to a normal file.


- Stop the Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer service. Run Stop-Service MSExchangeSearch if you are into Shell.

- Browse to where the database files are located on the disk. Along with the database file, you will see a folder with "CatalogData-random string" as its name. Delete this folder, which stores the corrupt index.

- Restart the Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer service. Run Start-Service MSExchangeSearch if you are into Shell.

- Give it a minute and a new folder will be created and a new index will be built.

- If guide on above can't assist you, then you may utilize software for crashed .edb files

Fix/repair oversized Outlook PST file?


And also for reference Microsoft does not support pst files that are larger than 2GB in size, they can be corrupted really easy.
The thing with the PST file is that it is a database file so even if you throw away a multitude of mails from within the PST file the size will still be the same. You indeed have to compact it. This can also be done in Outlook itself ( see info below). But as said, because the file is this large you might corrupt it. I would suggest creating a new PST file and copy information into it until you reach 2GB and then create a new one. Do this until all mails are moved. Even then you might want to try and compact the file.

On the File menu, click Data File Management.
Click to select your Personal Folder, and then click Settings.
On the General tab, click Compact Now.
Click OK, and then click Close.

Make use of Recovery Toolbox for Outlook

Hi All, Can anyone please tell me how to stop Outlook Express from popping up wanting to free up disk space by compressing it EVEN when its not installed. I've had it on numerous computers and it


When messages are deleted in Outlook Express, they are not actually removed from the database containing your email data. Rather, the messages are marked to let Outlook Express know that they can be removed the next time the database is compacted. Compacting the message store is necessary for Outlook Express to maintain a reasonable database and avoid file corruption. Because it is necessary, Outlook Express offers to compact your message store every 100 times the program is used. If you do not compact your message store, the message will continue appearing. Compact the Outlook Express message store manually to remove the message asking if you would like your message store compacted automatically.
Compact the Outlook Express Message Store Manually Launch Outlook Express. Click "File," then click "Work Offline." This disconnects Outlook Express from the Internet temporarily, ensuring that the message store is not in use while you are compacting the database. Note: If you do not want to compact the Outlook Express message store at all, see Section 2. Click "Tools" and then "Options." Click the "Maintenance" tab. Click the "Clean Up Now" button. Click the "Compact" button. This process may take some time depending on when the message store was last compacted. Click "Close" or "OK" to close each window. The offer to compact the Outlook Express message store automatically will no longer be displayed. Click "File" and "Work Offline" to reconnect Outlook Express to the Internet. Compact the message store periodically to prevent the message from being displayed again. Remove the Offer to Compact the Message Store Without Compacting section 2 Press the Windows logo and "R" keys to display the "Run" dialog box. Type "regedit" without quotation marks into the box and press "Enter." This opens the Windows registry editor. Click the plus icons on the left side of the folder tree to navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER," "Identities," "(long string of letters and numbers)," "Software," "Microsoft" and "Outlook Express" folders. Click the "5.0" folder under the "Outlook Express" folder. Find the value named "Compact Check Count" on the right side of the window and double click it. Change the number displayed under "Value data" to "0" and click "OK." Close the registry editor. Outlook Express will not offer to compact your message store again until it has been launched another 100 times. Hope this helps

Can't open any browser


Absolutely good sir.

Go to http://malwarebytes.org/ and download the program.

Download it's latest Database from: http://majorgeeks.com/Malwarebytes_Anti-Malware_Database_d6025.html

The reason I recommend you download the database.. is obviously on that PC, you can't use to the internet, and therefor cannot download or update it.

So, once you have downloaded those 2, put it on a flash drive, go to the PC with the crashes. Install Malwarebytes, don't "Launch Updates" at the end. Do not start the program. Instead, update it via the database you downloaded. - It is the latest manual update database for it at the moment.

Now, restart the PC. Enter safemode (F8) at start up - if you don't know what it is, or how to get in to it, google is your friend.

Once if safemode, fun Malwarebytes with a whole system scan. It'll either find and remove everything, or find nothing.

In either case, after you've done that - at least it'll clean your PC of other bad stuff you might have had - download the latest versions of Browsers, and reinstall/install them.

If problems persist, you can contact me further at grand_admiral_inzanio@hotmail.com or take it to a computer shop.

Good luck either way mate!

Exchange server 5.5


Firstly, Retention periods may be set up in the exchange so that mail is kept within Exchange for a period of time even thought the users may have deleted it. Check out http://support.microsoft.com/kb/246283 to change the standard retention policy to suit.

Also using a tool to defragment the Exchange Database may be useful - Try PerfectDisk for Exchange. But remove as much other stuff as possible first as it needs space to work.

A couple of things... Exchange 5.5 has been replaced three times now and support ceased from Microsoft on 31st December 2003. NT Server support ceased a year later and is about to be replaced for the third time as well. I'd REALLY look at getting more up to date software on suitable hardware.

When deleting emails, remember any legal requirements you may have for retaining / archiving emails.

BCM Problem ... Lost Contacts


The BCM uninstallation doesn't delete your databases. They should still be on your computer here:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application

With either a *.mdf or *.ldf extension. Those are SQL databases which you can get the data off and into a CSV file which you can import into outlook (of course technical expertise is needed) or you could more easily (once the problem with BCM is resolved), make BCM re-recognize the databases by following these instructions:

1. Go into BCM and create a new database. That database needs to match the
name of the .MDF file. So if the MDF file is named "MyBusiness.MDF", create
a new BCM Database with that name

2. Stop the MSSQL$MICROSOFTSMLBIZ Server by going to Start > Run >
services.msc and selecting the MSSQL$MICROSOFTSMLBIZ service
3. Copy the original .mdf & .ldf files over the blank database. They should
be in the following location
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Business Contact Manager

4. Start the Server again (see step 2)
5. Restart BCM and see if you can access your data

which I found here (credit to Larry from the Lockergnome's forums).

If you could write what the error message is I could possibly help you resolve the BCM problem you're having, thereby making it easier for you to view the data on the SQL database files.
