Attempt to Delete or modify message locks up outlook client.
Posted on 2003-11-04
I have a message that was returned by an outside server likely because of a large (30MB) attachement. I know that I should not have attempted something that size to begin with, but I did and here I am. If I try to open Outlook under my own profile it simply locks the machine.
I can open my inbox from another users account, but when I try to delete the offending message (or do anything else with it) it locks outlook. How can I get rid of this message?
As of this time I am not doing brick level back ups, so I can't simply roll back the clock. My last ditch resort of course is just delete the mail box and startover, but that is not a very good option.
