Outlook 0x80040600 error code is intimidating, isn’t it? From an unknown reason you’ve probably found yourself unable to send/receive or even delete Emails, am I correct? You were probably receiving one of these messages: "An unknown error has occurred" or "Messaging interface has caused an unknown error" or anything like it.

The good news – it is repairable.

The bad news – this is a serious error, this code indicates that your Outlook.pst file is corrupted.

Don’t worry…I’ll show you how it can be fixed.

What is Outlook.pst file?
This file is probably one of your most important files – it accumulates all your Emails, attachments, contacts, memos…you name it. If something goes wrong with that file, and there are thousands of reasons (sneaky virus, unexpected shutdown of Outlook, exiting Outlook improperly etc.), then you’ll experience all kinds of errors such as this 0x80040600 error code.

This error is relevant to Outlook 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 on Windows XP/Vista or Windows 7.

“Great, so what should I do now…?”
You need to restore that file (…and that’s a huge file) by using a PST recovery tool.

You can try using Microsoft’s Scanpst.exe (Inbox Repair Tool) – this is an approximately 37K tool that supposed to repair your Outlook.pst. I’m saying ‘supposed to’, since it’s very limited in what it can do which eventually results with quite low success rates, after all, what can you expect from a 37K file....

Go ahead, try it, and see for yourself what I’m talking about...I’ll wait…

Anyway, what I’m about to show you is truly from another league, and I can say with full confidence – this is going to completely recover your entire PST file! No matter what size it is and how badly it is damaged. (I know that professional Data Recovery labs are using this).

I’ve used it myself and it easily recovered my 5 years old 2.3GB PST file.

Good luck and hope that helped.

Oh, and BTW, feel free to post your comments and add any tips or suggestions regarding this error – just scroll down to the end of this page. If you’ve found this post helpful, I’d like to know about it…thanks.


Tip – if you’ve lost / unintentionally deleted Emails or Emails folders by mistake then it’ll recover deleted Outlook items that as well. When I first used it, it recovered a bunch of my lost Emails from several years ago…
