Outlook 98 vs Outlook 2000
myassisdragon Jan-13-01 02:16 AM
Don't know if I'm in the right forum, but anyway... Using Exchange 5.5 for the corporate email and on one PC (IBM 300PL PIII/128 MB Ram) I am running Office 97 with Win98 SE. When attempting to attach a 4mb file to an email I receive an error message of "Out of memory or Systems Resources." Only Outlook is up and running.

The funny this is on an identical PC running Office 2000 and Win 98 SE and it is able to handle the 4mb file attachment.

Any ideas? Does Office/Outlook 2000 manage ram better?

Thanks.

Check for a virus. You may be low of hard disk space. Fire-up the Windows Explorer, right click the C: drive and select properties. Delete the files in C:\windows\temp. In the Internet Explorer, delete the Internet History files (Tools, Options…). Lastly, empty the Recycle Bin. Larry

The problem could possibly be explained by:

“SMTPSplitMessages=PT_BOOLEAN,0x1434

SMTPSplitSize=PT_DWORD,0x1435

Or, perhaps, the Outlook profile just needs updating, http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q166/7/78.ASP.
I would upgrade Outlook. Larry
