Error 0x8007000E in Outlook and Recovery

Microsoft Office Outlook is a popular personal information manager used among users that stores all the data in PST file (also called Personal Folder). But this PST file can get corrupt due to endless number of reasons, which include virus attack, unexpected crashes, network errors, saving the file on network, and application issues. The typical symptom of PST corruption is that you get errors while sending or receiving email messages in MS Outlook. You should use your recent PST backup to restore the lost information. However, in case of no backup availability or its damage, you need to use PST Repair applications that offer safe and complete repair for damaged PST file.

As a practical instance, when you use Microsoft Office Outlook and try to send or receive an email message, it returns the below error message:

“Sending and Receiving reported error (0x8007000E): Out of memory or system resources. Close some windows or programs and try again.”

However, you successfully send and receive the email messages.


The above behavior is seen with MS Outlook when any of the listed conditions exists:

  1. Incorrect or damaged Mapi32.dll file. This file is the critical module of Windows Messaging API (MAPI)
  2. Your Outlook profile is damaged or corrupted
  3. Your Inbox contains corrupt email messages


You should use these steps to solve these problems:

  1. Run MAPI repair tool (also known as Fixmapi.exe) to check and repair incorrect or damaged Mapi32.dll file
  2. Delete the damaged Outlook profile and recreate a new one
  3. If Inbox contains damaged email items, you should detect and delete them. If this measure fails, run Inbox Repair Tool. It is the built-in tool that corrects most of the PST corruption issues. If Inbox Repair Tools doesn’t repair PST corruption, scan your affected PST using PST Recovery software.
