Microsoft Outlook is a remarkable e-mail client which comes bundled with the Microsoft suite of applications. It stores all your important information viz e-mails, contacts, calendars etc in a Personal Folders (PST) file. Thus, a PST file holds great value for any Outlook user. There can be many instances which lead to PST file corruption including application malfunction, abrupt system shutdown, power fluctuations, network errors and others. In such situations, Outlook may exhibit strange behavior and won't let you send or receive e-mails. To overcome data loss problems, you must use the updated backup of PST file. However, if no backup is available, run the Inbox Repair Tool. If this doesn't work then you must consider using a professional pst repair software.

Consider a scenario, wherein, you start Microsoft Outlook 2003, and send or receive e-mail messages as usual. Though, the messages are sent and received as expected, you receive the following error message:


"Sending and Receiving reported error (0x8007000E): Out of memory or system resources. Close some windows or programs and try again."



The above error can surface in the following situations:

  • The Mapi32.dll file is damaged or incorrect

  • The Inbox contains a damaged e-mail message

  • Your current e-mail profile is damaged



In order to resolve the problem, you can try the following PST Recovery steps:

  • Run the MAPI Repair Tool

The Fixmapi.exe is located in either the C:\Winnt\System32 folder or the C:\Windows\System32 folder.

  • Delete the damaged e-mail

If you suspect a damaged e-mail message in your Inbox, delete it. In order to do this, try and move all the e-mail messages in the Inbox to a personal folder. You will not be able to move the damaged message. For example: try to move a group of messages to a personal folder. If you are unable to move the entire group, try to move an individual e-mail message to the personal folder. After finding the damaged message, delete it.

  • Create a new e-mail profile, and then start Outlook by using the new profile


If you are unable to isolate the error or problem, it indicates that your PST file is corrupt. You must use the Inbox Repair Tool (Scanpst.exe) to fix corruption issues.

However, if this strategy does not yield any result, then download and use a third-party pst repair software. Such tools employ improved scanning algorithms to extract data from corrupt PST files.
