I’m using Outlook 2003 on XP Pro (don’t start your Mac/Linux evangelism please!)

So one of my guys sent me a task 2 weeks ago but I think it’s corrupted or something.

Firstly, the task does not display in the Reading Pane.
And then, if I try to open it, move it or delete it – I get this:

And I have tried EVERYTHING I can think of to get rid of it.

Any ideas? ‘Cos I’m going mental with this “thing” polluting my nice clean Inbox!

GRRRRRRR

    Hmmm, is the sender also using Outlook 2003? If he’s using Outlook 2007, this might be the problem..

  2. justB[coz] says:

    Yes, the sender is also on Outlook 2003 …

  3. BigFriendly says:

    Have you tried to run the “Detect and Repair…” option under the Help menu?

  4. justB[coz] says:

    @BigFriendly … yes, I’ve tried that. I’ve also tried an Office repair from Add/Remove Programs, running Scanpst.exe and clearing Frmcache.dat.

    *grumble*

  5. BigFriendly says:

    And has the person who wrote the task tried to delete it? Sorry for stating the obvious, last shot at trying to help.

    I just did a Google for “Outlook 2003 delete corrupted shared task” and this post came up on the first page. Not of use, but interesting.

    Also found this http://share-pst.qarchive.org/ Maybe something there will help.

    Just tried that now … no luck :-(

    I’ll have a look through that software – thanks …

    Damn, that’s really annoying, sorry, can’t help from afar :/

    Very annoying. Eish … will have to wait till my Tech Dude comes around again and ask him to help.
