Currently using Outlook 2003 on a exchange server. Most e-mails are viewable although a few will give me this msg "can't open this item"

Things i've tried.
- deleting saved attachments that outlook saves in some outlooksecure folder
- deleted FRMCACHE.DAT
- complete uninstall of MS office 2003
- Recreated .ost

I've ran out of ideas.

Thanks

Are you able to view the the problematic emails via another client or OWA?

Also is there any errors being logged in the Application Log on the Exchange Server?

Is it only you who faces this kind of issue.
check taht first. if there are others who also face similar issue it could be the database issue.

Also as you are connecting to the exchange server.
ask your Exch admin if he can move your mailbox to a different store.
check if you are still getting the same error.
