Outlook cannot move items from the inbox to a personal folder.

I had a user this morning tell me they weren't able to move messages from the inbox to a personal folder.  Of course they said a box popped up with some security settings and to see your administrator (the same thing users ALWAYS say when there's a problem).  So I logged into his machine and try it myself and sure enough there was an error, but the error was this

That said, we also have Citrix running in our network for remote access.  When I logged on to his Citrix account and opened Outlook I was able to move the message into the personal folder.  So there's something wrong on the local install of Outlook.  Any ideas based on that error message?

Thanks in advance,
Tom

Something to try:

run scanpst.exe on the PST file in question.   By default, it's located under C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\1033\NT\SCANPST.EXE

Run it, browse the the PST, start it, fix any problems it finds.  Does it work for them again?

Where is located the PST?
Who is owner of this PST
Did you check the permissions on the PST parent folder and PST itself
Seems to be a permissions problem
