Outlook - synchronizing subscribed folders error

outlook 2010 synchronizing subscribed folders error

File > Options > Advanced > Send/Receive > Edit "All Accounts"


For each account listed on the left, change the "Receive mail items" setting to "Download headers for subscribed folders." By default it's downloading a TON of extra data unnecessarily which is why it's taking so long and generating the error.

Run scanpst.exe located in:  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14 on all PST files.  PST files may be in two locations.

1)  C:\Users\jdoe\Documents\Outlook Files
2)  C:\Users\jdoe\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

If Outlook continues to freeze and or have issues run in safe mode.  Create the following shortcut:

Target: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\OUTLOOK.EXE" /safe

This will force Outlook into safe mode when starting.  You can also hold down the CTRL key when launching Outlook and it will start in safe mode.
