Ms Outlook XP, while sending/receiving on any account returns the following error code: 0x8006040c.
It might be related to the dimension of the mail repository. Is it correct? But how to avoid it definitely? Is there any sw that is capable to manage and store correctly and easily the messages in a different file pst to reduce drastically the initial dimension of the original pst?

Hello gdaquin,

Did you type the error code correctly?  0x8006040c does not relate to any known code.

If the PST file is full (max 2 GB), then deleted old emails. Archive some emails. Then compact the folder.

If you cannot open PST file at all, you need to use Repair a 2GB Outlook Personal Folder - PST2GB

PST file is located in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder.  It is a hidden file, so you have to unhide hidden files. Open Windows Explorer folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.


Hope this helps!

I've posted the error message on the ee-stuff. You can find it with the id: 20359779. The error message is simple:
error unknown 800....
The error code is correct, the pst file is near the dim of 2 GB. I'm also asking if, Is it a tools to archive (correctly) the messages before a date?

This indicates that your mailbox is full and you have some policy set by your administrator that you cant send above your mailbox limit.

It would be recommeded to make the new PST file by the following steps
Outlook > File > New > Outlook Data File and select the location where you need to save. Refer WAR1's post as he posted above for more details.

In case if you are not allowed to have that, please contact your administrator for increasing the mailbox OR delete some old emails and make sure you delete them off from the delete items. In order to view what is the current mailbox size
Go to your outlook
Right click on Mailbox - Your Name > Properties > Folder Size

I see, the pst file size is at the edge. I can create a new pst or i can delete old mails. But, is there a tools to archive with some criteria the old mail?

I've archived messages, but the dimension of the file pst in use is unmodified.
Why?

qdaquin,

As I posted in my first comment, you need to compact the PST file.  Then you will see the space saving.
1.      On the File menu, click Data File Management.
2.      Click to select your Personal Folder, and then click Settings.
3.      On the General tab, click Compact Now.
4.      Click OK, and then click Close.

No, compression takes awhile.  You need to go have lunch or dinner. :)
