    I recently migrated my Vista machine which runs Office 2007 from one domain

    to another. I am a local administrator on my machine. After I changed domains

    I found that I could open Outlook and read all my contacts/calendar... from

    the original .pst file but was unable to edit or create new items without the

    error which I stated in the Subject heading. I tried

    uninstalling/reinstalling without resolution of the problem. I also created a

    fresh(blank) .pst file and still I could not enter new data into a blank

    > .pst! Curiously, if I log onto the old domain (on the same computer), Outlook

    can open the identical .pst file but is able to edit and create new items.

    Since reinstalling did not help, I'm at a loss for what to do next. Is this

    a problem with the Profile that was created when I logged on to a new domain?

    hi

    locate your .pst file, right click/properties/security - check

    permissions, edit or add

    permissions as required

    Nope, permissions are just fine.

    I can't get it to work even with a fresh (new) .pst file. However, if I log

    on to the old domain, I can edit/add objects(contacts, calendar events...)

    without a problem to the same file. I can create a blank .pst and it's works

    fine. Log back on to the new domain and I get the error we're discussing.

    As far as user/domain rights, I have local admin rights(identical rights on

    both domains).

    Clearly not, if you can't open the PST.

    Take ownership of the PST and you should be OK.

    Did you name the profile the same name?

    Try creating a new profile, using a different profile name.

    Oh, another thing to look for:

    Did you copy this pst onto your desktop from a CD?

    If so, then select the properties of the file and turn off the

    Read Only check mark. To select the properties, just

    right click the file and select "Properties".

    Re: You don't have appropriate permission to perform this operatio

    You're right about the permissions being the problem but not in a way I

    suspected. Recall that the problem occurred when logged on to one domain but

    not the other. The reason was that the "problem" domain as an ActiveDirectory

    which suppressed the use of .pst files across the whole enterprise. The

    Permission issue was a global one and not a local one.

    I'm not sure there is a "fix" for that short of getting the the Permission

    changed

    Thanks. Turns out to be an ActiveDirectory Permissions thing rather than a

    local problem.

    Re: You don't have appropriate permission to perform this operatio

    I had similar issue every time trying to copy email for Inbox to a local

    folder. I was getting this error message:

    "cannot move the items. you don't have appropriate permission to perform

    this operation"

    I could create pst file, create folders into it but wasnt able to move any

    item in it.

    Turned out network admins had disabled pst files.

    Solution:

    Quick approach

    Open regedit and search and delete these two entries,

    PSTDisableGrow

    DisablePST

    Better approach

    I found 2 places in registry for each entry (a total of 4). i created Reg

    Delete command in cmd file and added the cmd file to startup program. This

    way if network admins push this entry again through group policy or whatever,

    I will revert the changes back.

    Add these two lines of code to a cmd file.

    Reg Delete

    "Hkey_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\12.0\Outlook" /v

    DisablePST /f

    Reg Delete "HKey_Current_User\SOftware\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\PST" /v

    PSTDisableGrow /f

    Add this cmd file to startup program.

    Remember to add a line similar to above for all the entries you find in

    registry.
