I try to call CreateFolder in MAPI to create a folder, but fails. and get the return result hr = 0x8004060C. I search in MSDN and MFC source codes, but cannot find the error code corresponding to 0x8004060C. Could anyone help me? Thanks

Does it not mean the mailbox is full?

Are you running this against a server mailbox or a pst?  Does the same error occur if you run it against another mailbox/pst?

We are not sure. Because we cannot see any documents about this error. When we get this error, we continuously get more error of the same codes in the following calls to CreateFolder.

So is this a PST file or a server mailbox?  Can you run your code succesfully against another PST file/mailbox?

this is a PST file. I think this error maybe mean the mailbox is full, because the PST file is in old Outlook97 format and its size has reaches 2GB. But we just want to find official documents on this error code.
