Can't reply to messages with attachments - "Unspecified Error"

Hi All,

Lately, after receiving a mail with an attachment, I am unable to successfully reply after composing the mail. A message pops up saying "unspecified error". I wonder what the problem might be.

If I copy and paste my message in a "new message" and hit the "send" button everything is fine!

I appreciate if someone could advise and help me to sort out this problem in Outlook. Btw, I am using Outlook 2002 SP3 with all the latest updates.

Thank you.

best regards,

Hi war1,

Nice to meet you again!

Well, I cannot scan using Scanpst.exe as I do not have Outlook.pst in my system at C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\! What should I do?

I don't think I have a 2GB problem as my file size is only around 250MB.

Cheers and best regards,
Ranjit

Ranjit, PST is a hidden file, so you need to unhide hidden files.  If PST is not in the default folder, did you move it to somewhere else?  Do a Windows search for *.pst

Hi war1,

Thank you for email, and for the tip! Scanpst.exe did not find any errors in my Outlook. What next?

Cheers and best regards,
