Profiles become corrupt.

I recently upgraded a user's Office 2000 to Office 2003 on a Dell PC running Windows XP Professsional. We are on a network that uses Exchange 2000. When he opens Outlook using an existing profile and tries to open an email, contact, calendar entry, etc., he gets the error message:
"Can't open this item. Out of memory or system resources. Close some windows and try again."

If he then closes Outlook, creates a new profile, and opens Outlook using the new profile, everything works fine. However, if he closes Outlook, the old profile will no longer work and a new one must be created.

Most of our office staff have been upgraded to Office 2003. He is the only one having the problem. Any solutions or suggestions?

Hi parkerr,

Have you scanned the system for virus and spywares ?

If you are not setting up any account like pop or in your case exchange , does it happen then also .
Donot setup any account and try opening and closing outlook and check what happens

You may want to reinstall office and see if that would help
