    Spooler Error (Outlook 97)

    Mysteriously, as always is the case, my Outlook 97 stopped yesterday (running XP). After closing and reopening, the message is "Windows Messaging Subsystem Spooler needs to close". It is frozen - no messages received/sent - nothing.

    Reinstallation hasn't worked. Should I uninstall Outlook? If so, can anyone reference the Woody's Watch where I can get the correct files (.pst and others?) before trying this?

    The support line tells me that Outlook is still retrieving messages from the server, but I'm not receiving any - I suppose those are lost?

    You may have a file that is large and is stuck. Can you log into your email from IE with out using Outlook?
    If so, do that route and check to see if there are real large files. You should be able to delete any from there that needs to be using this same connection.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    I've contacted the provider, and there aren't any messages on their server - all have been removed from their server onto mine?

    I could try to set up Outlook on another PC and try to pull the messages?

    Thanks!

    Fixed! The culprit appears to have been a message to be sent - it was not a large file at all, but it seemed to have created the "mapisp.exe" hang up.

    Thanks for the help.
