I runt Outlook 2007 on Windows XP and get multiple ubstable warnings:

1. disk full. free some space

- There is 90 GB of free space

- PST is 19GB but it is on a ntsf disk

- I defragmented the disk

- i made a scanpst

- the longer the outlook is running the more chance this strange error appears

None did help

2. Often email body is empty

- I want to view an email and the email seems to be empty

- often this is combined with a memory issue

- the longer the outlook is running the more chance this strange error appears

- I stopped scanning email by the avast scanner in hope it might help, not change unfortunately.

Quite desperate and no idea how to solve this. Even thinking about buying a new computer.

How can this be solved?

It's the 19 GB that I think is the problem - default size is 20 GB, warnings are around 19 GB. See http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/config/changing-the-default-pst-and-ost-sizes/ for the registry key needed to increase the size, or archive older email.
Thank for the fast reply Diane!

I understood that so I setup a new pst file, but it has also thesame issues.

I also check your url thank you for that!

Unfortunately "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\PST" doesn't seem to exist somehow in my registry

It's not in the registry, many default settings aren't added to the registry - you need to create it.

Hi,

I really appreciate your help!

I installed the registry .reg file for outlook 2007.

Free some space error I didn't receive yet, but

I still get strange issues:

1. When composing full screen in a reply message the body is empty although it should contain the text, but when decreasing size of window the content appear (sometimes this issue does not appear)

2. Also received a "out of memory of system resources" error when sending an email, when restart outlook this problem seems to be solved for a while

Today I had an additional new error:

3. Outlook has insufficient memory?

And the disk is full error. There is no space to find to store a 200KB document with 92 GB free space outlook says :-(

You didn't have body problems before adding the registry key?

What size did you enter for the pst file?

I still receive empty body email, when restarting outlook I can read the body temporarily

So the body isn't really empty, it's just not displayed?

Correct it isn't displayed. Today I installed Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package x86 to have wamp running and now it gives an outlook error that the required gdiplus.dll cannot be found.
