How to repair Outlook folders using the Inbox Repair Tool


Inbox repair tool(scanpst) is the best tool that can be used when you are finding any difficulties to connect your inbox folders or pst files or it is reporting that your Inbox folders or Outlook PST file may be damaged in Microsoft Office Outlook 2000 (or higher).Scanpst is a tiny tool installed by default when installing Microsoft Office 2000 or higher.

PST files or Personal Folder Files are used by Microsoft Outlook for storing Outlook data, including mailbox files, email folders, contacts or any other personal data related to Microsoft Outlook.

By default, Microsoft Outlook stored these PST files at the following location:

"C:Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook",

where USER_NAME is your Windows logon name.

The default PST filename for your active mailbox is Outlook.pst, while the archive file is stored as archive.pst.

"Before doing any types of repairing pls keep a back up of the pst files"

Using Inbox repairing tool

By default, Microsoft Outlook will install the Scanpst.exe file within your Program Files folder, in 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI1033'.

If you can't find the Inbox Repair Tool, you can download it from here then copy it to the above folder.

Make sure Microsoft Outlook is not running when you try to run the Inbox Repair Tool. When starting it, you should see the following screen:

If you get an error message like the following one:

then make sure you copied the Scanpst.exe file to the right location. If you still have problems running it, then search your hard disk for a file named "CNFNOT32.EXE" then run it: it should unpack and copy the Scanpst.exe file to its default path ('C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI1033').

Once you started the Inbox Repair Tool, use the Browse button to select your personal PST file. Remember, its default location is "C:Documents and SettingsUSER_NAMELocal SettingsApplication

DataMicrosoftOutlook",(It can be vary depending on how where you configured the pst files). where USER_NAME is your Windows logon name. Then click on the Start button. When the scanning process is done, you should see a notification screen like the following one:

Make sure you mark the checkbox for making a backup of the scanned file, then click on the "Repair" button. When this process is done, you should be able to properly start Outlook and use your recovered personal Outlook folders

How do i fix microsoft outlook?


Try these steps

* Click "File," then "Exit" to close Microsoft Outlook.
* Open Windows Explorer. Browse through your file system to where Microsoft Outlook is installed. On a 32-bit Windows system, this will be "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office XX," where "XX" is the Office version number. On a 64-bit Windows system, this will be "c:\Program Files (x68)\Microsoft Office\Office XX."
* Double-click "scanpst.exe." Click the "Browse" button and navigate to "c:\users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook." Double-click "archive.pst."
* Click "Start." The utility scans your archived PST file and reports any errors or corruption in the file.
* Click "Make Backup of Scanned File Before Repairing" if the Scanpst program finds errors. Click "Repair." Close the confirmation window when the repair is finished.

Outlookhotmail...how do I get out of it??? I want my old hotmail back


For those who find Microsoft Outlook to be unnecessary, getting rid of the program can feel like it's harder than it really is. There are three methods that this process will go over. This process also shows how to uninstall Outlook without uninstalling other programs you may have installed with Microsoft Office. Click on the "Start" button and select the "Control Panel." From the control panel window, double-click on the "Add/Remove Programs" icon. Scroll down the list of programs until you see the listing for Microsoft Office, and click once on it. (It may say "Professional Edition 2003" or whichever version you have installed.) Then click the button "Change." Next you will see a window pop-up for Microsoft Office Setup. Select the dot on "Add or Remove Features." Uncheck the box for Microsoft Outlook and click on "Update." The setup will then begin to process the removal from the system. b> Removing Outlook Through Windows Components Wizard b> Click on the "Start" button and select the "Control Panel." From the Control Panel window, double-click on the "Add/Remove Programs" icon. When the window pops up, click on the "Add/Remove Windows Components" icon at the right side of the window. The Windows Component Wizard will appear. Scroll down the list of components up to Outlook Express. Uncheck the box next to the icon and click "Next." Click "Finish" once the process has completed. b> How to Remove Hidden Outlook Files b> To perform this process, you must allow Windows to show hidden files and folders. To do this, open any folder and click on the "Tools" button. Under the View tab in Folder Options, scroll down the Advanced list until you see "Hidden Files and Folders." Place the dot on "Show Hidden Files and Folders." (If you want to undo this later, follow this same step and place the dot back on "Do not show hidden files and folders.")= Once you can see the hidden files, open another folder and type "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft" into the Address bar, and press "Enter." This will open the folder where the hidden Outlook files are located.(%username% is the name of the administrator or user on your computer. For example, if your name is John Doe, you would type "C:\Documents and Settings\John Doe\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft.") Click on the Outlook folder and delete it. Check the Office folder as well because there might be Outlook files in there as well. If there are any, delete them.
Disconnect Hotmail From Outlook b> Many people use Microsoft Outlook to manage their email accounts. Even email accounts that have Web interfaces, such as Microsoft's Hotmail, are able to utilize Outlook's more robust feature set. When you stop using an account, however, you might want to remove it from your Outlook accounts. You can remove your old Hotmail account from Outlook's "Account Information" menu. Click the "File" tab and click "Account Settings" on the "Account Information" menu. Click to select your Hotmail account from the list and click "Remove." Click "Yes" to confirm that you want to remove the account. Hope this helps.

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

RE: Outlook 03


This should be a one time action, after running the PST files should be okay. If it happens repeatedly, that means the file is still corrupt, or Outlook does not close properly.

So:
- when you close Outlook make sure to wait for it to close before shutting down the computer.
- try copying the PST file(s) to a different disk/folder, delete the old ones and then copy them back to make sure the files are not corrupted.
- if required, create a new PST file, copy all content of your current PST to it and then rename the old PST. In the account settings, point mail delivery to your new PST file.

Hope this helps.

Outlook Free/Busy error


Hope this solves it for you! Here's the official word from Microsoft:
If you receive one or more of these error messages, you may experience performance issues until Outlook finishes the reconciliation process for the .ost file or for the .pst file. The following gear icon is displayed in the status bar while Outlook checks the data file in the background: Collapse this imageExpand this imageol2007gearicon.jpg When this icon disappears, the .pst file or the .ost file is reconciled. If you exit Outlook while the gear icon is present, reconciliation must restart the next time that you run Outlook. We recommend that you leave Outlook running until the gear icon disappears before you exit Outlook.

An incorrectly shut down .ost file or .pst file may occur for one of the following reasons:
  • Antivirus scanning of the file
  • Forced Microsoft Windows shutdown before the Outlook.exe process shuts down completely
  • Outlook add-ins
If you see this issue frequently, and you have to exit Outlook shortly before you shut down your computer, it may be better to shut down Windows while Outlook is still running. We recommend that you do this instead of exiting Outlook and then shutting down Windows shortly after that.

Cannot open Outlook 2007


I juts got this problem. Nothing worked, except finding the file (location is in the error message) and trying to rename it. The system told me it was in use.
I was able to find and kill the processes (Excel and a messenger app) using a file unlocker utility.
I have a feeling this would be just as easily resolved by the stadard 'switch it off and switch it back on again.'
