I use outlook 2007 and windows 7 64-bit, both up-to-date. outlook 2007 is connected to exchange, thus uses an OST rather than a PST file to mirror the files on the server.
Since Wednesday, after reindexing my mail messages and files, I have lost the following functionality related to outlook:
- I cannot drag a file from an explorer window and drop it into a new mail message, in order to add an attachment to that mail, anymore
- i cannot use the right-click - Send to mail recipient shortcut on a file to automatically create a new message with that file attached. An error appears when Outlook is open, saying that the OST file is already in use by another process (obviously outlook itself or what???), if outlook is closed, absolutely NOTHING happens.
Really need help very bad.
Any helpful comments are welcome.
