Outlook 2003 the messaging service returns an unknown error if the problem persists restart outlook
Posted on 2004-10-05
I originally had this problem with Outlook 2000, I tried all the microsoft knowledge base solutions, and they were of no help; none of them were. So in an atempt to solve my problem I upgraded both XP to Professional and Microsoft Office to 2003. After, wading through install problems with each and more pressing SP2 problems it seems even tho I uninstalled 2000 and installed 2003 the data remained and I still have the same problem in the title. All I am trying to do is save a contact; I dont think I can save anything in Outlook, and I cant get past this. I realize this is negative, but dont reply just to wash your hands because of the XP upgrade; in fact, dont reply to wash your hands period. I have allot experience with IT and support, and I know all the games. Oh one more time try to look in the Microsoft knowledge base if u want, but I am very sure the ans IS NOT THERE.
Oh i was not able to complete the Service packs in 2000 for some unknown reason and there were no SPs for 2003. Also I dont remeber forwarding any email or anything i did in particular. A possible solution to this problem may be to know all the XP services the messaging service requires.
In the title it says the error message i recieved when I tried to save a contact. I dont do anything unusual or advanced with outlook. Thats the problem i try to save the contact i get the message in the title of this problem sorry im tired of typing it. I'm dled the service pack, but same problem. i dont know where the outlook pst goes. I found it. I neve moved it.
