    One of our users is having some Outlook 2007 (using Exchange 2003) issues

    where Outlook becomes unresponsive when it's first opened and hangs for a few

    minutes… then suddenly starts working. I am seeing the following warning in

    event viewer:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application

    Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.ost is being reconciled with the indexer for

    the following reason: The store was last opened on a different machine.

    The only change the user has made recently is archiving some folders to pst

    files on to the network. Any idea what this warning means or what could be

    causing Outlook to hang? Thanks in advance!

    The messages means that two or more machines are using the .ost file. You

    can delete the .ost on said machine and it will create a new one. This will

    stop the message from happening.
