    What is your setup, PC with local PST and POP/SMTP or domain with Exchange?

    What makes you think it might be a PST problem? It could be a profile or addon issue too so some further checks may be needed.

      You don't say which version of OUtlook it is, but all (IIRC) include "scanpst", an app which will rebuild a corrupted PST file (not lossless, though)

        Does the 5,000 message limit do that? Can't remember the effect is.

          Take that .pst file and mount it into PST Walker (google it). Then, you can search or browse your contacts.

            I think your Outlook PST file might be corrupted, because most of times, these type of errors point to a single reason i.e. corruption of PST file. Try to repair it using some inbox repair tool. You can also use the default tool which comes with outlook installation package but chances of repair are very few, because it is not a professional tool and even last time when i tried, it fails in the middle and says not responding.

            Better download some third party utilities and try. you will get good results.

              scanPSt can be frustrating.. but it doesn't always freeze in the middle.. it just looks like it stops responring.. but with scanpst, and compresspst, you just need to be patient and give it time.. especially when you're dealing with large PST files
