Are you experiencing the frustrating situation where Outlook sends an error message whenever you try to send or receive mails, or whenever you even try to read or delete a message? And have you tried to check out what the error code being generated is?
Chances are that if you are getting an error (consistently) whenever you try reading, deleting, receiving or sending emails in Outlook, then the error in question could be the Error 0×80040600. Typically, the way to be sure that you are experiencing Outlook Error 0×80040600 is when you attempt to delete a message, and outlook tells you something to the effect that the error being experienced is ‘being caused by an unknown error which is affecting the messaging interface).
At its core Outlook Error 0×80040600 is one of the errors that are caused by damages to the file in the outlook package where the program stores what it refers to as your personal folders -essentially your personal data in it -(though of course it won’t tell you as much). This, incidentally, is the folder where pretty much of the stuff you need to work with Outlook is stored, from your emails (the ones you have downloaded locally to your computer’s C or whatever disk you use for the purpose), to your Outlook contacts, and even the notes you have accumulated in Outlook as well as your calendar details if you also use Outlook for scheduling. Whenever this file in which ‘personal folders’ are stored happens to be corrupted, Outlook finds it impossible to process emails (whether the process you are looking to do is receiving, sending, reading or even deleting). So what it does is that it generates an ‘unknown error’ message – with a code 0×80040600 (if you ask it for details); which renders it impossible for you to do anything with the program.
But while Outlook error 0×80040600 is a rather serious error (in that it completely cripples your Outlook email sending capabilities), it shouldn’t make you too worried; because software tools exist for mending it. What most of these tools that are available for sorting Outlook error 0×80040600 do is to restore the underlying Outlook file for storing personal folders (which is abbreviated .PST) to its original position before it was corrupted by whatever it corrupted it; so that at the end of using it, the functionality of your outlook program is restored. The beauty of most of these Outlook error 0×80040600 repair tools is that they will typically even go searching for the .PST file for you (in case you don’t know or can’t remember where you stored it before it got corrupted), so that we end up with a situation where the program does everything for you, from looking for the lost .PST file to removing the corruption in it and restoring it to the form it was before the corruption.
Of course, an alternative to making use of the said Outlook error 0×80040600 repair tools is re-installing your copy of Outlook afresh; but with a catch: that you will have to lose the (probably) valuable contacts in your outlook, as well the items on your calendar and all the previous outlook emails and pretty much everything to do with; perhaps too great a price to pay for most of us, one would say.
