Failed to update headers - Outlook 2000

  VECee 09:27 07 Feb 2005

I am using Outlook 2000 to access mail on an IMPAP server. All has worked well for years. Now after connecting to the server, the program runs through the normal process of reading the remote inbox for new mail, shows it is updating the local cache and once it finishes scanning the inbox, a message pops up that it "failed to update headers". I can see all the mail on the remote server (except the new mail). I cannot open mail on the remote server (that had already been read, but not deleted). Also cannot delete mail or purge deleted mail. If I connect to the server using Outlook express, all works well. Finally, I do have plenty of space in my mailbox on the server, and also on my local C: drive.

Assistance with this will be greatly appreciated - no obvious solutions on Microsoft site.
