Can't move items error

Whenever i use the 'find' or 'advanced find' window and try to move e-mails (individually or multiple) into a personal folder or another part of my mailbox i receive the "Can't move items error" message.  This was working a week ago and has now stopped.  

Any help appreciated.

Try recreating your profile
go to control panel --> mail and then show profiles
delete the existing profile and recreate one again .. Before that backup all data in outlook to be on the safer side

Have you tried doing "detect and repair " going to help menu inside outlook 2002

Try opening outlook in safe mode and check if that would help (start --> run --> outlook/safe)

Try repairing the pst (http://www.slipstick.com/problems/scanpst.htm)

Check for virus and spyware in the system

If none of the above works out , try reinstalling office

Yep, I have tried all of those suggestions and unfortauntly none of them work, it is also the same problem online or offline and after a office re-install.

Hi Oneill,
sounds like 2 things: your personal folders may be approaching the limit, and you can and should upgrade to sp3, which became available on 3/9. To check your folder size, just go to tools, mailbox cleanup and click to se folder sizes. Even if you have deleted items, you may need to compact the pst or create a new one

Good luck
Karen

Hi Kfalandays,

I have checked the personal folders size and its is only 150mb so well within the limit and have run it through scanpst with no corruption.  SP3 could possibly be the answer but would prefer a more definate solution before trying this.. thanks :-)

Sure, feel free to check this link about sp3, tho, looks like it fixed quite a few undocumented bugs. There's one in here about advanced find, as well

When using Find or Advanced Find can you select the messages you want moved and do Edit > Move to Folder successfully?

I had the exact same problem, and it turned to be the size of the personal folder size.
I went to personal folders properties and selected the "allow large files" checkbox.
Then it all started working again.
