Outlook 2003 DDE Error

I receive an error message when closing Outlook 2003--not always, but a good percentage of the time.  The error window title is "DDE Server Window: Outlook.EXE-Application Error."  The message is "The instruction at "0x3004e60c" referenced memory at "0x008ede58".  The memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate the program.

It's more a pain than anything else--nothing seems to be lost, it's just worrisome that something will in the future.

A couple of notes--.pst is stored on a network drive, we're using POP, not exchange.

Thanks.

PST files on a network drive isn't supported.
It will usually lead to data corruption.

Have you tried a new Outlook profile?

Might also check to see if there are any mapped drives that are not connected.
If there are, remove them.

I'll check about other mapped drives that aren't connected, but I don't believe there are any.  We've had .pst files on our network for about 7 years, and have had over 100 boxes stored out there with no problems, so I don't think that's the issue but thanks for suggesting.

Transaction-level recovery for Oracle database

Veeam Explore for Oracle delivers low RTOs and RPOs with agentless transaction log backup and transaction-level recovery of Oracle databases. You can restore the database to a precise point in time, even to a specific transaction.

The fact that you have stored PST files on a network share for seven years doesn't make it the right thing to do. I refer to that as a drunk drivers excuse.

These are two items from Microsoft regarding PST files on a network share.

I read the articles, thanks for pointing them out.  Wow, we're lucky we haven't had issues.  Fortunately we only have about 30 boxes right now and it doesn't seem to be a problem, but I'm going to look to move them off.  This was done by a network administrator we use to have--I can't take "credit" for it!

Any Updates?

I checked on the mapped drives, and there were none other than valid network connections.  Next step is to create a new .pst file and move all entries from the current one to that.  I've been travelling and haven't been able to get to that, though.  Will likely be in mid-March.

Thanks for checking, and once moved I'll update this question.

I appreciate the feedback, but the problem didn't stem from the network drives.  I removed all, put the .pst file on the local drive and the problem still occurred.  I decided to get rid of this machine and bought a new one, so the problem will remain unresolved.  Thanks for the help.
