Outlook 2007 Contacts Issue

I am using Outlook 2007 with several accounts including POP and Exchange.  While transferring all my data from one computer to another I've noticed some problems.

1- My contacts are in the Contacts folder but when I use the To, CC, BCC: they are gone.
2- All my distribution list (Names) will auto-populate when typing them into the To: box but they are not actually there (when I click on the + I get an error (The Name or distribution list has been deleted and is no longer a valid address Book entry.)  However, if I go to my address book and open the distribution list and click email it will populate properly and send to all on the list.
3- My Sent box is not populating with new emails (and I've sent hundreds of emails in the last week)

I've used the scanpst.exe/scanost.exe to no avail.  I've tried uninstalling Office and reinstalling it with no luck either.  It seems painfully obvious that I've got a corrupt file here but I still have a lot of functionality.  Is there anything I can do moving forward to restore or repair this file (.pst)?

Thank you in advance

If you've tried the standard scan/repair options and they haven't fixed it, why not try creating a new pst to use, and importing the data from the old one into this new one. That should copy as much data as it can, and if there is something that is corrupt, then it will not copy over, as it won't be readable.
