Outlook Problems

I have a user who's Outlook 2007 file is reaching 9GB. She's setup on Cached Exchange Mode.  This user is having problems Forwarding or Replying to RANDOM e-mails. She's hits reply and composes the e-mail  but when she hits SEND nothing happens, the message window just stays put. I restarted her computer and then tried to reply to the same e-mail and it works sometimes but other times restarting does not fix.

Exchange Server 2003, Outlook 2007, Windows XP SP3

Her mailbox may need some cleaning up, use archiving to move old items from the online store to a local PST file.

With a mailbox that large, the change of OST Corruption is pretty high.  You will want to create a new Outlook Profile to clear up any issues due to the corrupt OST.

Just because you CAN have a very large PST file in Outlook 2007 and above, doesn't mean you SHOULD have one.  I would advise cleanup of her OST and her Exchange mailbox both to reduce the size. You can archive items from the OST to a PST so that the OST and Exchange mailbox sizes will be reduced.

Keep in mind that if you create a new Outlook profile it will need to download 9gb from your exchange server.  Not exactly ideal.   You can also try the ScanOST.exe utility that comes with most versions of office

Can you confirm that the user actually has a 9GB mailbox on the server side?  It wouldn't hurt to set storage limits on the server, to prevent users' mailboxes from growing out of control.

Thank you. I did Archiving to move all of her e-mails locally, then I deleted teh local OST so it would be recreated for the current setup because after the Archiving the OST file was still at 9GB but in Exchange I showed a 800MB mailbox.
