most likely the emails are already deleted or the file corrupt, and Outlook is compacting it.

Run scanpst (Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 12\scanpst.exe) on the file before opening it in Outlook. If the file is corrupt, it might just recover the readable bits.

I have runned scanpst.exe and it showed some errors, repair completed but I still can't open it.

If the file was created with an older version of Outlook, perhaps you should try importing it instead of opening it with Outlook 2007.
