Multiple errors when sending/receiving and deleting/moving messages in Outlook 2002

Hello -

These are the problems I am having with Outlook 2002:

1. When I send/receive I get the following error:
Task 'pop.artellawordsandart.com - Sending and Receiving' reported error (0x8004060C) : 'Unknown Error 0x8004060C'

The "envelope" icon says that messages are downloading but they don't come to my inbox.  Messages in my outbox are being sent repeatedly.

2. When I try to delete any message, or move it to another folder, I get this error:
"Restart Outlook and try again. If the problem persists, please reinstall. "

I have tried the following:

1. Running scanpst.exe under C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\1033 to scan the Outlook.pst file (I found instructions to do this on another discussion that indicated a similar problem

2. Installing Service Pack 2 (I had not yet installed it)

3. A question - I saw on the previous discussion that Email Saver XE could be used if personal folders were corrupted, but when I run Email Saver XE, it asks me to select a backup folder from which to restore, and I don't know where to find a backup folder.

Please help.  I'm completely unable to use Outlook as of now.

Check this

Install all the latest service packs and updates for outlook and then restart to see if that would help

Yes - I was looking at that link and hoping that simply deleting old messages would help, but I'm not even able to delete files.

I've downloaded service pack 2 but not 3, so I will try that.  Where can I find the latest updates for Outlook?  Are they included in the service pack, or found in a separate place?  Thanks.

OL 2002 should have SP3 as the latest
Go to http://officeupdates.microsoft.com and scan for updates.

I got SP3 and downloaded all updates and restarted computer.  Still the same problems as above.

What can I do next?

make backup of all your outlook data
go to control panel --> mail --> show profiles
remove the profile and create a new one

then import alll your data, recreate the email account and then check if that would help

Also try creating a new personal folder to see if that would help

Hi SR -

I was making a backup of my outlook data by exporting it to a folder that I created on my hard drive.  The export failed because I ran out of memory.  So I canceled the backup, deleted the folder I had created (to which I was exporting), and emptied the recycle bin.

When I opened Outlook again, I get a message that Outlook can't find the backup folder (it gave the path for the new folder I created).  When I click OK, a window opens that says "Create/Open Personal Folders File" and it is set to browse at a folder in ProgramFiles/Common Files/System/MAPI/1033.

I'm not sure what I should do next.  I never achieved a backup because of the memory problem.

Try opening outlook in safe mode to see if you can get access

start --> run --> outlook.exe /safe

Also Look for outlook.pst file searching in hidden folders
Mostly it would be found in
C:\Documents and Settings\{your profile name}\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

and backup that pst file

I have been trying to fix this and I think I'm made the problem worse because I haven't been making the right decisions.  Maybe you can help me find a way to start over.

I will do my best explain and backtrack - I apologize for not being more sophistocated.
I deleted the email profile as you instructed and imported my backup, and then I ended up with several different Personal Folders in the folder list pane - each one having the same sub-folders with emails in it.  I was getting low memory messages -- it said I only had a couple of MB in My Computer, so I tried to delete email folders and files in the folder list pane, to get rid of all the duplicates, but it won't let me delete anything - it says "Outlook has encountered an unknown error.  If the problem persists, restart Outlook."

I would assume the next step would be to delete .pst files from \Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook, but I don't know which ones to keep and which to leave.  They are named outlook, outlook1, outlook2, etc.  

The other thing I tried was to remove the email profile again, and just start over by importing my backup.  However, I did this, and it didn't seem to remove the files.  I removed the profile from Control Panel - Emails, but when I open Outlook, I still have the same problem: multiple Personal Folder listings, and the inability to move or delete items.

I can, however, receive and send email.

Like I said, it seems I've made the problem worse and I don't know what to do next.  Am I supposed to have more than one .pst file in the \Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder?

I didn't hear back from this last post, but I did uninstall and reinstall Outlook and I'm all set, so I can close the discussion.  Thanks for all your help.
