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
ScanPST
http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/outlook/repair.html
OR
Outlook Recovery Toolbox
http://www.oemailrecovery.com/outlook-recovery.html

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
