yes I had; and it worked fine yesterday; restored the corrupted .pst and it was working again. However today the file got magically corrupted during my absence (? I'm suspecting the AV virus scan or auto defrag) and backupscript happily copied the corrupted outlouk.pst to the remote location.

luckily have a 3rd backup which I run almost weekly

it's Outlook's PST format which truly and utterly sucks uke:. At previous work about 50% of all email issues were related to corrupt PST files

Didn't you have a daily backup script ?
Comment from jmke @ 2006/02/13
I've had it with Outlook 2003; it corrupted me .PST beyond repair; scanpst.exe finds 2 folders (I have over 200 now) and although file size is at 700Mb I see no mails after the scanpst

my latest backup of my PST is from 02/02 this month; I haven't lost any emails though, as gmail is working fine

so Thunderbird here I come

I can't read my messages. It's just blank space.

double negotation error must be "with currently 22000+ mails; I don't think 174 is that much"

I make a new subfolder for every important contact to keep track of previous conversations in an easy way


I'm going to stick with Outlook 2003. It offers better "rules" manangement and in combo with Google's desktop search is much faster for searching through mails.

well.. 410Mb in mbox format <> 440Mb in PST format;

not that much difference imho; let's see if searching goes more efficiently

I don't use the calendar, but will check out the email reader, thanks!

Try it out (installation and import < 10 min), couple it with the superbe calendar app/extension and you'll have outlook2003 ... only better
i wrote a small howto some time ago ... http://www.madshrimps.be/forums/show...?threadid=6671
Comment from jmke @ 2004/12/14
how fast is it to browse through stored messages? is the mbox mail format a lot faster? Outlook in general with its PST is quite slow ones you have over 10.000 messages
