On my home PC, Iâ€™m using Windows Vista Home Premium as my O.S. and Microsoft
Office Enterprise 2007, and both are completed updated.
When I load Outlook, the main PST file is loaded, of
additionally, I have a storage PST file (i.e. Outlook Data File) where I
store all my e-mails so that my Inbox and Sent folders donâ€™t become too
large, and also so that my main PST file does not become to large.
The problem Iâ€™m having with Outlook is that
when I â€ścloseâ€ť the storage PST
file, I get the following error message â€śThe messaging interface has returned
an unknown error. If the problem persists, please restart Outlook.â€ť If I
restart Outlook, it will automatically load the storage PST file. If I
remove the storage PST file from the hard drive folder where it is stored,
and then restart Outlook, it will ask for the storage PST file. I
â€ścompactedâ€ť both files, and have also used the Inbox Repair Tool on both
files, but it doesnâ€™t help.
To make matters worse, I have other PST files I would also like to load into
Outlook, but it wonâ€™t allow me to. Further, Outlook will not allow me to
create any new PST files (i.e. Outlook Data Files).
On my office PC, I have 12 to 13 PST files loaded at one time
problems), so itâ€™s not unusual to have several open at one time.
Iâ€™ve been having this problem for several
months, and Iâ€™m beginning to think
that the only solution is to completely uninstall Outlook, and perhaps the
entire Office suite, and then reinstall it.
