Unknown error 80040119 when sending and receiving


A

Andrew Aronoff

Hello,

I'm using OL 2003 SP3 under Windows XP on a standalone PC. Exchange is
not being used. The PST file is 590 MB.

I recently started seeing "unknown error 80040119" when sending and
receiving. The error is intermittent, but very frequent -- it occurs
at least 80% of the time that Outlook is opened.

Here's what I've tried:

1. repeatedly ran SCANPST.EXE until it reported no errors. This had no
effect

2. created and attached a new PST file, copied the messages from the
original PST to the new PST, closed Outlook, renamed the original PST
to OUTLOOK.PST.BAD, renamed the new PST to OUTLOOK.PST, opened
Outlook. Surprisingly, this had no effect.

3. Deleted/recreated the default account that's triggering the error.
This had no effect.

Any suggestion as to what else I can try?

TIA and regards, Andy

Renaming an outlook pst is not neccessary, has no impact, and may corrupt
the Profile
If you start outlook using the safe switch is the problem replocated?
Start
Run
Outlook.exe /safe

Renaming an outlook pst is not neccessary, has no impact, and may corrupt
the Profile
I renamed the "old" PST *after* having copied messages, contacts,
tasks and the calendar from the "old" PST to the "new" PST. IOW, I
tested whether a new PST file would resolve the problem. It did not.
What's the preferred way to deal with a corrupt PST if SCANPST.EXE
doesn't solve the problem?
If you start outlook using the safe switch is the problem replocated?
Start
Run
Outlook.exe /safe
I'll certainly try this, but if it works, does this mean that an
add-in is responsible?

thanks and regards, Andy

The first data file created in OL is named by default outlook.pst, a second
new data file would be named outlook1.pst, by default & a third outlook2.pst
etc
You can name the data file anything you like (conforming to file name
criteria) it makes no difference to OL
Using explorer to rename a data file that exists in an OL profile can
corrupt the Profile

Generally if you have backed up / copied a data file then later tried to
open that data file within OL, and you receive err msgs its an indication
that either your method of backing up went wrong or OL was open during the
process.

If you still have your origonal backup / copy data file locate it in your
Documents folder, create a new OL Profile, add that data file, add yr amail
accounts, set that Profile as default & test OL

I'm not sure the procedure I followed has been clearly explained
and/.or clearly understood. At no time did I copy a PST file in
Explorer. I copied messages in Outlook between two open PST files.
Using explorer to rename a data file that exists in an OL profile can
corrupt the Profile
After using OL to copy the contents of the old PST file to the folders
in a new PST file, I closed OL, renamed the old PST file, OUTLOOK.PST,
to OUTLOOK.PST.BAD, renamed the new PST from OUTLOOK2.PST to
OUTLOOK.PST, and reopened OL.

Are you saying that this procedure can corrupt the profile? If that's
the case, how can I copy data from OUTLOOK.PST to a second file and
ultimately wind up with a PST named OUTLOOK.PST? (I know that Outlook
doesn't care about the file name, but I do.)
Generally if you have backed up / copied a data file then later tried to
open that data file within OL, and you receive err msgs its an indication
that either your method of backing up went wrong or OL was open during the
process.
I did not copy the file. I copied the *contents* of the file by
dragging and dropping (with the Ctrl key pressed) the contents of the
folders from one file to another.

The error I'm seeing with the new PST (with contents copied from the
original PST) is identical to the error seen in the original PST. This
error, then, is not caused by the copy operation.

Do you have any suggestions about how to avoid error 80040119 so that
Send/Receive will work?

If possible, I'd also still appreciate an answer to the question I
raised in my last post:

thanks and regards, Andy

Yes

Its entirely possible that a particular piece of data is corrupted and in
copying you are replicating the damage

Create a new Profile - dont copy - see if the problem is replicated, first
try the safe switch

FOA, I appreciate you taking the time to respond.

If I create a new, empty profile, I fully expect it to work without
error -- it is extremely likely that corruption of certain messages in
the PST file is generating the error.

How do I recover my data since copying it from a corrupted PST file to
a new PST file merely copies the corruption?
Create a new Profile - dont copy - see if the problem is replicated, first
try the safe switch
OK, but I'll wind up with a perfectly empty PST file. I don't see how
this really helps.

regards, Andy

I would run scanpst.exe on this pst several times.
I would aslo run my HD makers disk checking utility
If you create a new profile with new data file set as default you can still
have your old data file open and visible

Done. See my first message in this thread.

CHKDSK did not show a problem.
If you create a new profile with new data file set as default you can still
have your old data file open and visible
I'll try segregating the data in a second file.
