MSOutlook error mssg pop up: "The messaging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists restart Outlook." Restarting doesn't work - I cannot send/receive/delete.  It shows progress in the lower right hand corner (file folder icon w/percentage of download complete, etc.) but always defaults to an error and nothing is received.

I've run a Scan of the PST files several times with no luck. Tried resetting PC to earlier time/date too.  Nothing working yet.

What version of Outlook?
Is it fully updated? If not installed the latest service pack for the outlook.
Try 'detect and repair'
If not working 'uninstall and reinstall'.

Regards,
Joseph

Have you tried with a new PST as the primary download location?

Have you tried recreating the Outlook profile?

Worst case scenario.... Rename the local copy of the windows profile, and reset it up and retest?

All users on this machine?
