The Inbox Repair Tool (Scanpst.exe) that comes with Outlook works pretty well for repairing PST files.  More information here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287497

Is the file from an older version of Outlook and over 2 GB?  In this case the Oversized PST tool would truncate off a specifically defined amount of data so that it is usable again.
