    We are running Windows ME & using Outlook. I am getting an error now everytime that I am trying to even move within my folders. Outlook is not bringing in my messages from the mail server either. The error I'm getting is:
    "Errors have been detected in the file C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst Quit all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox Repair Tool."
    I have no idea where or what the "Inbox Repair Tool" is and can not find it.

    What do I need to do to fix this problem and where do I find the "Inbox Repair Tool"? Is there something else that you think could have caused this problem?

    We had a power outage on Tuesday this week and Outlook was up and open at the time the power went out. Since then I have had this problem.

    Please Help!

    Do a find for scanpst.exe

    Since not all versions install scanpst.exe, I put a copy up on my web site for you:


    Easiest is to uncompress it in the directory where the PST file is located. Then you don't have to browse so much.

    Also a good point for making backups
