Outlook 2010 Settings / Error

Posted on 2011-10-21

Hi guys,

Since we upgraded one of our users from Office 2007 to 2010 she has had problems with her views/settings being reset and she keeps getting the following message:

"Your server administrator has limited the number of items you can open simultaneously. Try closing messages you have opened or removing attachments and images from unsent messages you are composing"

We are running exchange 2003, she doesn't have a roaming profile, happens when she's got nothing else open and no one else has had the same problem.  

I've deleted her profile and even given her a new pc but the problem remains so it can't be local to the pc.  Plus when I set her up on the new pc her auto-complete list is still there (was a .NK2 file in Outlook 2007) so it must be pulling something from the network?

What I would like to do it find out where Outlook's pulling her profile from on the network and delete it so she has a completely fresh profile... or if anyone has any ideas on how to fix the above error message please let me know!!?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Many thanks

    Do you have any folder redirection set in AD via group policies? It sounds like you have. That would explain the files apearing on a new machine.
