I have a user that has her Outlook crash when she receives some invitation requests. I haven't been able to find a common bond among the requests that make it crash, it seems to be random. She is running Windows 7 64bit, and we've tried a few things, created a new profile, disabled add-ins, changed font, tried in Safe Mode, to no avail, we've also logged into other machines as the user, and onto the terminal server only to have the same problem.

Can you check the event logs on the computer and supply specific error information ?

so, Only "terminal server" access to the mailbox alone is having the problem?

--> run the
Outlook /cleanviews
Outlook /cleanrules
Outlook /cleanserverrules
Outlook /cleanclientrules...check if this solves the issues

>> on another client computer if the same user can access those meeting-requests well and good...then something wrong with this profile

--> Want to create another new Outlook profile and check the behaviour?

e_aravind,
We have already tried creating a new profile in Outlook for this user.  We have also logged into multiple machines with this user account with no luck.

Thanks!

Quick research indicates that the error that you're getting is from the Exchange Search Indexer service.
and by the tests you've made it is obvious this is not an outlook or computer problem so it's even more right.

I would recommend turning the indexing feature OFF  for the testing.
incase the error stops, then we got something to work with here.
here's a manual:

Hi ZeevM333,
Thanks for the suggestion.  However, since this issue will affect the entire Exchange server, it is really not feasible at the moment.

For testing, we have decided to try the following:
- Export a copy of the user's mailbox from exchange (to be later re-imported)
- Delete the user's mailbox from exchange
- Create a new mailbox and attach it to the user's AD account

So far, we have been able to successfully send and receive multiple Calendar invitations to the new account.

Will provide more update on this tomorrow.

Thanks!
