Not Enough Memory Error

Recently we've started to experience an error when we attempt to open a
Contact (E-mail List) within a mailbox. We are getting the following error:

"Can't open this item. There is not enough memory available on the Microsoft
Exchange Server computer to perform this operation."

Memory usage in the task manager on the machine is around 1.4GB, the machine
has 2GB of physical memory and is showing 500MB free.
Any assistance would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I've got a user getting a "Not enough memory available" error when trying to
open a DL in their Contacts. We're using Exchange 2003. I suppose it is
because they've created a DL that exceeded the size limit.

I've opened the user's mailbox on my system, using Cached Outlook 2007 and I
can open it just fine. Is there no longer a limit on DL sizes in Outlook 2007
or should the user be in cached mode to work with large DLs?

after installed BCM service pack 3 I get an error about not enough memory. I
have enough memory and disk space.

One of our users is getting the following message when attempting to attach a
file to a message from 'My Recent Documents':

Not enough memory available to complete the operation. Close other programs
to make more memory available, and then try again.

1. The error message will not close on 'OK'; the user has to go to Task
Manager; when she ends the e-mail message task, Outlook also closes.
2. There are no other programs open.
3. She can attach a file by going to the source folder.
4. She can open a document in Word from the 'My Recent Files' list.
5. We have adjusted the memory (Control Panel, System, Performance) to the
recommended setting and successfully performed a check disk.

I'm wondering if there is something buried (unseen) in 'My Recent Files'
that is too big for Outlook to handle but I can't find a method to clear the
list (no... going to the Start Menu, advanced options, clear list doesn't do
it). Or could this be an indexing problem? Or... (I'm out of ideas).

I found instructions to clear the 'My Recent Documents' list in Word via
regedit, but am inclined to think that clearing the Word listing will not
clear the Office listing, and I don't think its talking about the same list.

I realize that this is little more than an annoyance since she can attach
files from the source folder, however, there may be some underlying issue(s)
that will show up unexpectedly in Outlook or some other application. Any
suggestions?

Thanks.

Outlook 2007
=============
I have a large distribution list but when I double-click to open it I
receive a message stating that there is not enough memory in Microsoft
Exchange to open it.

If I can't open it in Outlook is there any way i can export it and open it
in Excel so I can break it into smaller distribution lists?

I am getting this error in synchronization log. I don't know how to get rid of it:

[8007000E-50D-3F0-560]

10:23:47         &n bsp;       &nbs p;               There is not enough memory available on the Microsoft Exchange Server computer to perform the operation. Contact your system administrator

Having a problem with Exchange 2003 on SBS2003 with Distribution lists.

Creating a distribution list within a public folder - up to 131 contacts all
is fine then after adding 1 more get the error "there is not enough memory
available on the exchange server computer to perform this operation"

However I can open the list ok using outlook on the server - but not on any
of the client pcs.

I thought that you could have up to 5000 contacts in a distribution list?

The server has 512MB Ram and a 2.4Ghz cpu - less than 5 users so should be
fine really.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi

We are running Exchange 2003 Sp2.

I cannot open an item in a Public Folder in Outlook that holds a list of contact details - the error message is;

"Error: Cannot open this item. There is not enough memory available on Microsoft Exchange to perform this operation. Contact your system administrator"

However, I can open the Contacts using Webmail. Any ideas?

getting error message not enough memory available while sending mail & error
code I am gettig is "0x8007000e 0x0003f1 0x00050c".

I have a user who is unable to archive his mailbox (Outlook 2003 - Exchange
2003)
We get the error message: Error while archiving folder "Inbox" in store
"Mailbox - 'users name'". There is not enough memory available to perform the
operation.

The mailbox sizes are limited so cannot grown overly large. There are some
attachments but nothing unusually large. The Archive file is large at 660 MB
but I have tried creating a new archive and still get the same result. Any
ideas?

Thanks

Recently I acquired a new computer populated with XP Home.
Basically, a state of the of the art one with dual processors,
mucho memory, etc. It has all the upgrades, etc. that MS sent
via Windows update.

Every day it is the same story. Open OE and read mail in one of my accounts.
Switch to another acct. and I get a screen that looks like the jpg attachment.

Error box says "not enough memory...."

After reading through a few months of posts here I did see similar
complaints. I did compact my mail. etc. But the problem still occurs
each and every day.

Worse yet, when I click on the "x" to close it out and restart, it still is running
according to Windows Task Manager so I have to manually shut it off.

If I choose to try another account (I have several) the program flat disappears
yet Task Manager shows it running and the icon for it is in the toolbar (right
side) and clicking on that is useless.

Once I have closed it out manually and restarted it, I can leave the computer
on all day long and check mail any time I want and it functions properly all
day long as well. The problem occurs at first use.

Is there a fix?

Thanks.........

User gets error message: "Unable to display folder. There is not enough
memory availabe to perform the operation."

Details: Exchange 2003; Outlook 2003; reocurring meeting; detect & repair
was temporary fix; symptoms have come back

What would this be?

We are using Exchange 2007 and once computer having office (outlook) 2003 .
When user tries to access one of shared public calendar he is getting below
error message...

Can't open this item. There is not enough memory available to perform the
operation.

once we reopen the outlook it works fine for some time and again gets same
error message..

We have tried with office repair and new profile creation but still getting
same error message..

It works fine with other users..

Any suggestions/idea that can help us..

I am receiving a message of: There is not enough memory or disk space to
complete the operation. I am only trying to open a word document attachment.
Has anybody seen this error and can you help me fix it.

Thanks

I get a similar message about lack of memory when not in cached exchange mode. I thought this was a problem that was only in outlook 2003 and 2007 SP1 ? Am I missing something ? As I can create large groups via web access... Or is there still a limit to the size of DL you can create in outlook

Thanks foy any help

i have see many posts with this similar question, but no hard answers

when i try expand a folder i get: "Cannot expand folder, not enough memory...."

running outlook 07 with exchange server 2007.

i can expand and see everything when i open outlook, but within a minute, the error comes up.

new install with windows 7 x64, 4bg ram, quad-core i7.

when working in offline mode, its all good!

ALL addins are turned off.

ost file is not corrupt.

mailbox size is about 7gb, exchange server is set to 30gb for this account.

tried different settings for the cached mode, no help.

safe mode, same thing.

this is my boss' computer, please help!

 

thank you!!!

I am copying some contact group folders into a public contact folder and I get the following message "There is not enough memory available to perform the operation......."

I have SBS 2008, I have installed Exchange SP2 on the server and Office Service pack 2 for Office 2007 in all the workstations.

Any suggestions on how to correct this problem is greatly appreciated. I have been working on this issue for a week alreday and I can't find a solution for it.

Hello, one of my users accidently got a reoccuring entry wrong which
resulted in thousands of entries in the Calendar at the same time slot.
However, then the user tries to delete/modify the series or even a single
entry then Outlook responds with "There is not enough memory to perform the
operation"

It is quite frustrating to have the calendar cluttered with garbage so why
is it not possible to delete it from the Calendar?
