Default HELP! Outlook 2007: 'Out of memory or system resources' Issue

Yes, you can create a brand new profile with a new PST then simply drag and
drop items into it from your old PST. If you scroll down, you'll see this
same link.

I still continue to encounter spurious problems with the newly created
profile. I seem to recall that there is a method of creating an entirely

new
profile then importing messages, etc. into it, i.e. a clean .pst file with
all settings set to default. Can you point me to a source?

As for BCM, there is a BCM forum, I'll try to find the name of it for

you.

Two final questions...I hope! During the new profile creation a new

..pst
file
was created. I can safely remove it from the account settings since

the
original file is now set to default, correct? Also, I can go ahead &

delete
the old profile?

Have you disabled all the extraneous stuff with Outlook 2007?

Disable RSS feeds, etc. Goto Tools - Trust Center and click the

Add-ins
tab.
There's a GO button at the bottom of the dialog screen, click that

button
and uncheck (disable or even remove) the Outlook add-ins (like
GoogleDesktop, iTunes Add-in, Acrobat PDF Maker, Mindjet

Mindmanager,
etc)
that you no longer use.

[Do not disable the Windows Search Indexing addin]

If you have upgraded to Outlook 2007 from Outlook 2003 or XP,

chances
are
that the old addins may not compatible with the new release and may

be
the
reason behind the slugging performance of Outlook, or it's hogging

of
memory.

If you still get out of memory or system resouces errors, have you

actually
checked in the task manager processes to see what is actually

using
the
most memory?

Well Kathleen, upon opening OL this morning with the newly created

profile
from yesterday, I'm back to square one...out of memory or system
resources...!!! Obviously there's something else in play here. I

ran
the
Vista Memory Diagnostics tool & it reported no problems. In

addition,
when
OL
is loaded I monitor syatem resources, & CPU usage averages about

30%.
I
also
ran scanpst.exe & it did find errors & repaired them to no avail.

I
then
tried to run in Safe Mode & stil got the out of memory dialog!

ARGH!
:-)

PS: I'm going to do a system reboot now to see if it has any

affect.

Thanks much Kathleen! Other than creating a new profile do you

know of
any
other methods to overcome this dreaded issue?!

Diane--
Your suggestion re making a new profile as I have a

different
issue in
that
I'm using OL 2007 on Vista Ultimate, not Win 7, & have

encountered
out
of
the
blue the dreaded 'out of memory or system resources'

issue. I
saw
you
respond
to someone using Win 7 & had my issue via Google but I

couldn't
find
the
thread here. Anyway, can you provide me wth specific

stepwise
instructions
on
your suggestion of "adding the old pst file to the new

profile
before
opening
Outlook." I did try this by highlighting my troublesome

profile in
the
Mail
applet but it simply created a new profile with no info

from
the
old
profile
(.pst file). So obviously I'm missing something or there

are
extra
steps.
BTW, I've run Office Diagnostics with no errors reported &

have
run
scanpst.exe on the file & it did find errors & repaired

them
but
it
didn't
resolve the issue. Thanks much!

If you get errors when you try to add it, the backup

process
may
have
damaged the pst. Run scanpst on it and try to repair it

or
get
another
copy
from the backup.
