    DB always in need of repair (Outlook 2002 SP3)

    My MS Outlook started doing this recently and has gotten progressively worse, so that now, ever time I launch Outlook, it goes through a minute of repairing the database saying that I didn't shut it down properly. I do always shut it down normally. Rarely will it open now without going through a DB repair. Anyone out there know how to fix this?

    By 'database' do you mean the PST (Personal Storage File)? If so, see if anything in <!post=this,547895>this<!/post> recent thread helps.

    I assume it is related to the PST file when it says database. I also assume that it is running that repair utility ever time I start Outlook. I have done a check disk and defrag and the error continues.

    Did you also run scanpst.exe (aka the Inbox Repair Tool), as suggested in the thread I referred to?

    That utility is what I thought was running when it did the repair after launching Outlook. I will try that and let you know.
