Hello jmikestory,

What is the exact error message?  Does the problem occur with you receive emails?

Sounds like your PST file is corrupt.  Repair Damaged Outlook PST File
Outlook Recovery Toolbox

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!

Thanks for the prompt replies.  After all the trouble, the staffer reports back that he deleted a substantial number of old email messages, and he's back in business.  That was my original recommendation to him, but something got "lost in translation".  Sorry for the bother
