OUTLOOK issues:: I have reinstalled Office 4x .. I have tried to run repair on installation and Outlook specifically. I can send mail, but I cannot recieve ALL of my SMTP data is correct .. If I try to move messages from my INBOX to another folder, I get an error:

The messanging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists restart Outlook.

I have restarted 100x, and did the above, and this issue is still not resolving.

Has anyone seen this before??

I get errors if I try to delete, move, or do anything with emails in my inbox or any of my other folders...

Could my PST file be corrupted?

Greetings, w3developing !

>> I have reinstalled Office 4x

Would you clarify which version of Office you have?  Office 2000, 2002 (XP), 2003?

>> The messanging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists restart Outlook.

Disable Messenger in Outlook. With Outlook open, go to Tools > Options > Other. Uncheck "Enable Messenger in Outlook".

>> I can send mail, but I cannot recieve

1. Register an important send/receive library file.  Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 inetcomm.dll

2. Check if antivirus email check is slowing sending and receiving.  Disable it.

3. In the account settings, Advanced settings, change the server timeout time from 1 min to 5 min

6.  Check with email provider Tech Support to determine if server is having trouble.

Best wishes!
