Exchange 2003 Outlook 2003 Export to .PST File Unknown Error dialog box.
Posted on 2006-05-09
I am running Outlook 2003 on Windows XP SP2. I have a public mail folder on the exchange server which I export to a .pst file each month. Normally everything works fine. I end up with a .pst file with about 18,000 messages totaling about 1 gig.
This month when I try and run it it runs for awhile and then quits and gives me and "Unkown Error" dialog box in which your only option is to click OK. It does create a partial PST file, but not complete.
My question is: What types of things can cause the "Unknow Error"? Could there be a "bad" message that causes it to quit? Are there certain types or sizes of email or email attachments that are not compatible with .pst files?
I would appreciate any help in troubleshooting this. Thanks
