Outlook 2003 won't print - 'The messaging interface has returned an unknown error'. Help!

In Outlook 2003 running on XP the following message occurs whenever i try to print a calender.

'The messaging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists, restart Outlook.'

What can i do to get rid of this error and get my calender printing.

Thanks

Is this a shared calendar? If so try disabling the taskpad option via File > Print > Page Setup > Format tab > clear the TaskPad check box > OK. Use the Daily Style print style selected, click OK to print the shared calendar.

Or you can update the permissions - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912803

Actually, the real solution is to close outlook, go to C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook and delete the OutlPrnt file and reopen outlook
