Outlook 2003 "not enough memory errors" or Hangs - locks up

OK,
Dell inspirion 9300 -
100 gb hd partitioned into 3 drives
C: OS 10 gb
D: Programs 20 gb
E: Data 70 GB
Page Files
0 on C:
4092 on D:
3070 on E:
- 2 gb ram
- office 2003 - xp pro sp 2
every office and xp update but .net 3.0.

Ran complete detailed hardware diags and all systems passed.

Since last week - open microsoft outlook and have several different problems.

1) it will hang and lock the moment I click on any email. (opens sorted by
sender - not how I normally have it)
or
2) It will launch to the today screen and say 3 objects are waiting to load
then the system tray will display an error "There is not enough free memory
to start the processes. Please close other apps" I get this after reboot and
outllok is the only app. I get this in regular mode and Outlook safe mode.
or
3) I can work a little but when I click on a folder or my Calendar I may or
may not get an error. "Unable to display folder - there is not enough free
memory... please close other apps" again Outlook may be the only app running.

Monday I spent 5 hours on this.
I ran scan pst on my 9 or so PST files. (largest pst is 1.2 gb)
5 or so had errors and the repair ran and said it completed.
Today 3 hours.

It may be my imagination, but I just started to use the calendar to schedule
tasks and the reminders seem to be or may be part of the issue.

I run Act 2007 - about 2 months ago I had an issue with Act prefernces
getting wacked and when that happened outlook would lock up. Once I deleted
the preferences in ACT - my OUtlook locking problem was fixed - (again 2
months ago)

2 times since Friday my system said I had to run a check disk.

I don't know what to do! Driving me NUTS and really effecting my productivity

What you should do is post your question to an Outlook or Windows
newsgroup. This is a .Net Programming newsgroup.

thanks - I did not realize that .... how it happened I do not know - I was in
the outlook area when I clicked on new post.

I resolved the issue doing the following.

Go to Control panel - mail - profiles - create a new profile.
You will have to it set up to point to your pst files and re-set any pop
mail accounts you had but it works. Make sure you tell the system to use the
new profile.

One catch is if you keep messages on the server, when you log in to the mail
system it will re-download all of your messages that are on the server
creating many duplicates. (I had 345) I suggest you take all messages from
your in box and put them in a new folder (temp inbox) - let the system
download all the messages on the server and then delete the duplicates.
