After you apply this fix, when you attempt delivery to a .pst file that is full (approximately 1.82 GB, 1,957,052,416 bytes, or 1,911,184 kilobytes [KB]), Outlook 2002 displays the following error message in the Outlook Send/Receive Progress
Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server - Receiving' reported error (0x8004060C): 'Unknown Error 0x8004060C'
0x8004060C is a unique error code that is designated for a failure to deliver to a .pst file Inbox because the .pst file is full. If you attempt to save any other items to the .pst file, such as an Appointment, Task, or Contact, you receive the following error message:
The file file_name has reached its maximum size. To reduce the amount of data in this file, select some items that you no longer need, then permanently (shift + del) delete them.
When you attempt delivery to an .ost file that is full, you receive the following error message in the Outlook Send/Receive Progress
Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server' reported error (0x00040820):'Errors in background synchronization. In most cases, further information is available in a synchronization log in the Deleted Items folder.'
If you check the Deleted Items folder, there is no synchronization log resulting from this error.
Outlook 2002 users who are connected to an Exchange Server or Exchange 2000 Server computer who have mail delivery set to a .pst file do not receive any notification when the .pst file becomes full. Mail simply stops being delivered to the .pst file and accumulates on the server.
