'The messaging interface has returned an unknown error-if the problem persists, restart Outlook'

Hi -

I am running Outlook 2002, SP-2, under Windows XP Home edition, SP-1.  I use
MS Word as my message editor.

For the past few months, I get the following error message in a dialog from
'The messaging interface has returned an unknown error-if the problem
persists, restart Outlook'

 This occurs when I either create a new message or note or edit an existing
message or note and then leave it open for more than just a minute or two,
rather than closing or saving and closing it.

I have run the "Detect and Repair" menu option in Outlook several times, but
that has not solved the problem.

My outlook.pst file is under 500 MB in size, and my archive.pst file is
under 400 MB in size.

I also have MS ActiveSync 3.6 installed.   This problem arises regardless of
whether I am running ActiveSync 3.5, 3.6, or 3.7 running - I have tried
installing them all, and I can reproduce the problem with any one of those
versions running.   The problem did not occur before I installed ActiveSync,
but it did not manifest itself until I had been using ActiveSync for a few
months, so I speculate that it is not related to ActiveSync, but I am not
certain about that.

Can anyone suggest a solution to this problem?

No message rules?
I just switched from Outlook express (which I really like) to Windows live mail. It did a very good job of finding my old contacts and messages, but I don't see my rules.

Hey Group, I've got a spreadsheet that lists a bunch of contacts. They same contacts reside in Outlook. In the past I've always retyped the contact info into the spreadsheet.

Anualized Percentage Return Problem
This calculation fails in Portfolio views (Total Annualized Return) and Reports (Annual % Return) which use it under certain conditions. The failure results in a blue-screen-of-death, that locks the PC (WIN98) using Money2000 or returns to the desktop using Money2004. The failure occurs on Mutual Fund accounts with about 20 years of transaction history. E.g., a test investment with a buy on 1/1/80, and no other transactions, will fail on report date ranges later than 1/1/80-7/29/03 in MONEY2004.

Outlook message rules for sent message from me.
Greetings, There has always been a message rule I wanted, and never asked about. So now I will. I default a copy of all my send messages to the sent folder. They are marked at read... which is good, because if I send the message, I obviously read it. <grin> At times, I wish I could send the message to other folders. Example. I have a folder called "family". If I send a message to "family", I'd like to be able to put a copy in the "family" folder. I know you could do this, but the message is not marked as read. Thus, the folder is bolded/...

Office 2003 and 2007 Word ignores certain spelling errors
I checked both versions (2003 and 2007) of Office Word to see if they recognized specific spelling errors. Spell checker seems to ignore any word that has certain characters embedded, like any number (0-9), asterisk, parenthesis, right brace, backslash, or left-arrow (shift apostrophe). When I'm banging along and I unintentionally hit a numeric key within a word, spell checker doesn't recognize the error. Why? Is there a fix for this?

Excel 2003 get text after wraptext problem
Hi all I have a problem that is, to get the texts row by row and count the text line in one cell that wrapped in Excel 2003. After google search, in the previous excel, I can find and count "char(10)" to determine the line break in text string, but in Excel 2003, no any char(10) exists, even char(13) after wrapped (unless I type ALT-ENTER manually).
