Not sure if this is going to help but I don't think there's an /outlook command line switch. There's a /outnews and a /newsonly switch (possibly a /mailonly switch).

I believe I had this problem due to a corrupted message in my inbox.  I renamed the two inbox files from dbx to old and restarted Outlook.  This created a new inbox.dbx.  I then deleted the inbox.old files.  Unfortunately you loose the previous messages in your existing inbox but I usually archive ones that I wish to keep so it really didn't matter.
