Can’t move Outlook emails to folders

When trying to move emails between folders, I get the following error message:

"Cannot move items. The item cannot be moved. It was either already moved or deleted, or access was denied."

This messages pops up when I try to move any email – either new or an old email. 

I can’t figure out why this is happening.  It’s likely I changed some setting by mistake that is causing this to happen.  Any idea what it could have been, because I don’t know?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It is possible that your outlook profile has become courupted and it
does not see that you have persmission to do this.. If the mail is
coming to you through an exchange server, you may have to have the
system admin correct the permission through the exchange server. If it
is not an exchange server then your local permsions to the file have
become corrupted and you need to reset them.

I saw another answer to this problem too.  If you are using an older version of Outlook, The PST file may have size limitations on it and it will not allow you to move the file until you get rid of some the older, not needed files in the PST.  I found this answer in the IT Knowledge Exchange on Linkedin.
