  • 2. outlook 2003 freezes upon opening - synchonizing folders
    I am using Outlook 2003 on Windows XP professional. From time to time I get the 'Outlook did not properly close personal folders' message on startup and it takes anywhere from 20 - 45 minutes to get Outlook to open. I understand that this occurs when Outlook is not allowed to close properly but sometimes it is unavoidable (like when Microsoft runs an update and restarts my PC for me). Today I had the same message and allowed Outlook to chec files. After about 20 minutes it started the process all over again. Another 20 minutes went by and Outlook eventually opened. After a few minutes it froze up and was showing 'not responding'. I saw the 'synchronizing folders' message and let it go for about 10 minutes until I decided to end the process in task manager. Same thing as above happened all over again. I looked at the pst file and it is over 8 gigs - the archive file is about 273 MB. I am running the inbox repair tool now but it is going on 4 hours. I beleive it is stuck but I'm afraid to stop it for fear I will have to start the process over again. Can anyone help me with a faster/easier fix? Is there a way to rename the pst file and have outlook create a new one and import my old files and data? Any help you can provide will be appreciated - I am a little frustrated at the moment. Thanks John

    I have two email address accounts in outlook. How do I change the default address when I forward or reply to emails? It gives me two options, but defaulted to the one I do not want.

501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments to RCPT command

Postby TWFybW9yZTgwOA » Mon, 11 Sep 2006 03:52:02 GMT

Before I call my ISP, does anyone know if I can change a setting in my 
Outlook to make this error go away?  I try to e-mail my daughter (for 
example) and it says I CAN'T! I just reformatted my computer, and imported my 
data from a saved file and that's when this all started....

You need to check the TO field to see if the email address is valid format. 
No wierd characters in the actual email address. If you reply to an email 
does it work okay? Otherwise call the ISP and verify your settings.

4.501 5.1.3 Syntax error in mailbox address

Help! I've been trying to send some distro. e-mails 
through outlook. (Well under the e-mailnumber limit set 
by my e-mail provider). I have gotten at 50% or more sent 
back for the above message, the e-mail address it 
couldn't send to, and "(non-printable character)" behind 
it. I called my provider and they said it was a microsoft 
error. What in the world is wrong? It took me 2 hours to 
send 278 e-mails the other day!!! Below is the message 
minus the e-mail address. It repeats this in the e-mail 
for every address it did not send. And it's not just one 
provided that it's not going to (aol for example) it's to 
a ton of different ones.

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:
