If you receive an error message that says, “Outlook has exhausted all of its shared resources,” Outlook has run out of room to store data. This can happen if Outlook is configured to use too much data or if the data files are too large. If you want to eliminate this problem, you need to keep reading this article.
Check your Outlook settings
If you’re getting the “Outlook has exhausted all of its shared resources” error, it’s most likely because your Outlook settings are misconfigured. Here’s how to fix it:
- Go to the File tab in Outlook and click Account Settings.
- Select your account and click Change.
- Ensure that the box next to “Use Cached Exchange Mode” is checked.
- Click Next and then Finish.
- Close and reopen Outlook.
If that doesn’t fix the problem, you may need to delete and recreate your Outlook profile.
Check for any updates
If your Outlook has been running slowly or you’ve been getting error messages about “exhausted all shared resources,” it might be time to check for updates. Outdated software can often cause performance issues or compatibility problems.
To check for updates in Outlook, go to the Help menu and select Check for Updates. This will open the Microsoft Office Update window, where you can see if any updates are available for your version of Outlook. If updates are available, select the ones you want to install and click the Install button.
It’s also a good idea to keep your operating system and other software up to date. You can usually find updates for your operating system by going to the website of the company that makes it (Microsoft, Apple, etc.) and check the support section. You can usually find updates through the Help menu or the software’s website for other software.
Run the Outlook in Safe Mode
If you’re having trouble with Outlook, try running it in Safe Mode to disable all of your add-ins and customisations, which may cause your problem. To do this, press and hold the Ctrl key while double-clicking the Outlook shortcut. You can also add the /safe switch to the end of the shortcut’s Target field in the Properties window.
If this solves your problem, you can re-enable your add-ins one at a time to figure out which is causing the problem. To do this, go to File > Options > Add-ins. In the Manage drop-down at the bottom of the window, choose COM Add-ins and click Go. Put a check next to each add-on you want to enable, then click OK.
Run the Office Repair Tool
If your Outlook has performance issues, it may be due to a corrupt or damaged data file. One way to try and fix this is to run the Office Repair Tool.
The Office Repair Tool is a Microsoft program that can fix various problems with Office programs, including Outlook. You’ll need to close all open Office programs to use it. Then, open the Control Panel and go to Programs > Programs and Features.
Click on the “Office Repair Tool” link and follow the prompts. The tool will scan your computer for potential problems and attempt to fix them.
If the Office Repair Tool doesn’t fix your Outlook performance issues, you may need to create a new data file. To do this, open Outlook and go to File > New > Outlook Data File.
Follow the prompts to create a new data file. Once created, you can drag and drop your old data file into the new one. This will copy over all of your account information, emails, contacts, etc.
If you’re still having issues with Outlook, you may need to uninstall and reinstall the program. You can do this by going to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features and selecting “Outlook” from the list.
Click “Uninstall” and follow the prompts. Then, go to the Microsoft website and download the latest version of Outlook. Install it on your computer and see if that fixes the problem.
Try using a different account
If you’re having trouble sending or receiving emails in Outlook, one possible solution is to try using a different account.
Outlook uses a process called MAPI (Messaging Application Programming Interface) to send and receive emails. MAPI is a set of instructions that tells Outlook how to communicate with email servers.
When you try to send or receive emails, Outlook first tries to use the MAPI process. If Outlook cannot connect using MAPI, it will try to use a different process called SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol).
Sometimes, the MAPI process can become “exhausted” and no longer work. When this happens, you may see an error message saying, “Outlook has exhausted all shared resources.”
If you’re having this problem, one solution is to try using a different account. For example, try using a Gmail account if you’re using an Outlook.com account. Or, if you’re using a Gmail account, try using an Outlook.com account.
Another solution is to try using a different email client. If you’re using Outlook, try using a different program, such as Thunderbird or Apple Mail.
If you’re still having trouble, you can try a few other things, such as restarting your computer or deleting and recreating your email account.
If you’re getting the “Outlook has exhausted all of its shared resources” error, your Outlook data file has reached its maximum size. If you see the message “Outlook has exhausted all of its shared resources” when using Microsoft Outlook, it means that Outlook is having difficulty connecting to the mail server. This can be caused by several factors, including network problems, server issues, or incorrect settings in Outlook. To resolve the issue, try restarting Outlook, checking your network connection, or contacting your mail server administrator.
