    Outlook Service

    Here is my problem:

    create a new pst, rename the old one so it is no longer attempting to load
    i do my best to test code works before i post it, but sometimes am unable to do so for some reason, and usually say so if this is the case.
    Note code snippets posted are just that and do not include error handling that is required in real world applications, but avoid On Error Resume Next

    dim all variables as required as often i have done so elsewhere in my code but only posted the relevant part

    come back and mark your original post as resolved if your problem is fixed

    The corruption or damage of the PST file is very heavy and complex. When Inbox Repair Tool (Scanpst) tries to repair the file, it will run into dead loops endlessly and cannot repair the file any more. Read more info here https://www.pstrecoverykit.com/

    Welcome to the Forums.

    The problem is with your pst file and not Outlook itself so reinstalling wont make a difference.
