When you click a folder while you are using Microsoft Outlook, one of the following error messages may be displayed:
Error message 1
There is not enough free memory to run this program. Quit one or more programs, and then try again.
Error message 2
You may experience this issue more frequently if you also use Business Contact Manager for Outlook (BCM).
Unable to display the folder. There is not enough free memory to run this program. Quit one or more programs, and then try again.
This issue occurs because there is insufficient memory to display the folder. This may be caused by any one of many reasons. These reasons can include customizations that were made to the folder view, such as setting a filter. With Business Contact Manager for Outlook, the add-in subscribes to every folder in every store in the profile. Each MAPI subscription uses some shared memory. Therefore, large combinations of items and folders can deplete memory.
