Hello to all: my first post here though I've trolled through before! Issue: I'm running Vista 64 with MS Office 07 (Outlook 07) with an exchange server. I've been having an issue for MONTHS now and no one seems to have any sort of reasonable answer on what to do! I 'primarily' use outlook on my laptop and webmail/server is a backup/default if not at my computer (rare). Note: my pst/ost are not over the 2 gig limit. they're not even 1 gig. Symptoms: - My OST is corrupted. not the pst. It has to be in the calendar somewhere. - If I try to access my calendar from outlook (on laptop), it freezes and shuts down the program. I no longer even have the icon available so I don't accidentally F it up. - Because of this, I cannot 'dismiss' any reminders (be it for email or dates in the calendar) unless they were created on the webmail and NOT on my PC (which is unusual as I only rarely use webmail version). the error I get states: 'Cannot turn off the reminder. You may be reminded again. Errors have been detected in the file C:usersxxxAppDataLocalMicrosoftOutlookoutlook.ost. Quit Outlook and all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox repair tool (Scanpst.exe) to diagnose and repair errors in the file. For more information about the Inbox erepair too, see Help" - I have to manually 'force' each inbox subfolder to sync with the exchange server (running in cache mode). If I don't click on the folder in outlook, the item will remain unmoved on the server/webmail (e.g. if I move an email to a subfolder on my laptop, when accessing webmail, it will remain in my inbox unless I clicked that subfolder in particular while still on my laptop ~ variably this will hold true for some deleted items as well, though not as often ~ reason unknown). - each time I start Outlook I get the warning: "Could not read the calendar. Outlook cannot open this item. The item may be damaged." - ScanPST aborts when reviewing the calendar with message: (see bottom of post). - when I try to go to the link, it defaults into Microsoft explanations about Outlook 2000 (which I'm not running and have never installed on this computer). - in my send/receive status box (which now runs constantly)I get an error message (! Task 'Microsoft Exchange' reported error (0x80040600); 'Unknown errror 0x80040600' - I have tried to reinstall Office ~ changed nothing! - Is it possible to create a new profile, and, when re-loading a saved pst/ost to NOT load the calendar? Seeing as this is where the error lies, I don't want to recreate the issue (and most if not all of reminders therein are backed up on the server as I dn't really make new ones given these issues)? I ask because there are MANY contacts that are 'new' on my laptop...but they're NOT backed up on the exchange account (the changes made) as it's not syncing properly due to this corruption error! aCK! Please help! I don't even know who my 'only hope' is at this point!
