Outlook 2003 can not display folder content with a error message that folder is full.

I recently upgraded Office 2000 to Office 2003 in my machine. Every thing worked fine. Now when I open Outlook, I can see all my messages in my inbox and other folders except one that displays the following message:
"Unable to display the folder. The folder is full"
The folder size is about 20MB and I want to remove some old messages if it let me. However, I have other folders with 30MB size that can be displayed with no error.
I am connected to an Exchange server and no size limit is applying on my account.

tried running scanpst to check the integrity.
There may be accidental drag-dropping resulting in the wrong message types in that folder, this should help.
its under c:\program files\office\office11\scanpst.exe

I have installed Office 2003 SP2 but not SP3. I am going to get it now and install it. I'll let you know the results. Thank you. I will run the scanpst afterwards.

Installing Office SP3 didn't resolved the problem. Also no error found after cheking the integrity by running scanpst. Any idea?

What happens if you open outlook in safe mode?

With Outlook closed
Start>Run>Outlook.exe /safe

In Outlook safe mode same problem. But I could find a workaround. I moved the folder to Inbox. It opened in my Inbox.
