Thanks K. Orland,

This solved my problem. It was a corrupt Outlook.pst file.

I am glad you took the time to respond! I hope I can do the same for others
in the future.

after doing all this ,I get the a error message stating that the pst file is
in use by another application. Close Microsoft Office outlook and all other
mail-enabled applications, and try again.

I did all the above and I still get vthe same message.



I'm still getting the same: error code 0x80040600

edit: have tried all suggested methods too.

In the outlook express, open the file menu.
In the file menu, click Data file management and then click Add.
Click Outlook 97-2000 personal Folders File.
Click ok.
Now outlook 2007 creates a new pst file.
Then click close.
Click folder at the bottom of the navigation pane.
Move the information from existing outlook folders to the new pst folders.
Click close.
You can also download scanpst.exe free repair tool to fix outlook error 0X80040600.

Outlook error 0x80040116 0x80040116 is a common error of outlook but unless you remove it you can't access the pst file and also can't send or receive emails. The reason behind this error is corrupt or damaged pst file so if you are getting this error and unable to fix then reapir pst file with inbox repair tool or a third party tool. PST is the main file of the outlook so if it is damaged or corrupt then it will produce such type of errors.

Hi Friend,

Microsoft has its own tool to fix these kind of errors which is known as Inbox Repair Tool. But sometimes it’s do not work when the corruption level is high at that instant use third party utility name as Outlook Recovery. As it works in all circumstances of corruption and retrieve your Outlook database items in a most secured manner.
