After upgradng from Outlook 2000 to 2003 I am receiving the following error mesage when trying to retrieve e-mail:
(0x8004210E) Your mailbox is temporarily unavailable because another mesage is being delivered to  or another mail application is acessing it. The server responded: -ERR Can't get lock. Mailbox in use.  This is worth about 400 points.
Thanks

Hi RCFalcon,

What type of email account your outlook is setup , pop3 or imap or connected to exchange server ?

Have you tried to recreate the email account ( delete it and create it again) and then tried to receive email ?

I still get error 0x8004210E After performing all suggestions posted here.  It's intermittent, mostly when I first open Outlook.
Any other suggestions out there that is known?
