If you are running Outlook 2003 try creating a new PST file in the new Outlook format. (Don't use the old 97/XP version.)

See: http://office.microsoft.com/en-ca/assistance/ha011190371033.aspx

You can then import all your old mail into the new PST file.  Be sure to disconnect/rename and quit using the old PST version. This will probably help stabalize your system.

Besides being more stable the new version doesn't have a 2Gb limitation.  The new theoretical limit is 33Tb.

Are you by any chance using McAfee Enterprise 8.0i ?
If this is not the case, just skip the rest of this message ;)

Outlook and Exchange regularly communicate to make sure that new messages get delivered a.s.a.p. When a new message arrives, McAfee starts a background scan but in my organisation the scan blocks outlook completely, it doesn't get released again.

How we solved this:
- make sure you have virusscanning on your exchange (makes mail scan at the client not explicitly neacessary anymore as everything gets scanned already)
- disable the "on delivery scanner" for outlook on the client pc (don't know for outlook 2002, but on 2003 it can be found in the outlook menu - tools - options - other - advanced options - add in manager - exchange scan -> should be disabled)
- send an EICAR test file to your mailadres to make sure that the "virus" gets intercepted. It should be removed at the server and not reach the recipient.
