Hello Steve90,

Why it has happened?

This is caused by corrupted software, in your case this might be a problem with your email client. Is it harmful?

No, this is not harmful. How can I fix this problem?

See below for the step by step instructions; Resolution Related To: 0x80070057 * Make sure Outbox folder is empty (You may need to disconnect from the Internet if Windows Live Mail says that it's "in use" ) * Delete and recreate mail account (Warning: deleting the account will also delete all messages, please set the customer's expectations) * If able to send emails using webmail, customer will have to contact Microsoft There you are, this should fix the problem.

Hello Steve,

There could be several reasons for getting that error, for instance and antivirus program may be preventing Outlook from sending automatic emails, the address book could be corrupted, or outlook might have failed to autocomplete cache.

To resolve it, you will need to do the following:

  1. First, you will need to clear the Outlook auto-complete cache. You will do that by typing the following command in Windows Explorer: %APPDATA%MicrosoftOutlook. That will open your Outlook Application Data folder, and then you will look for a file called Outlook.NK2 – select it & delete it.
  2. You will need to disable other running programs. You will need to disable the antivirus or firewall program and check if it works.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Carl

Hi.

To resolve your problem verify that you can connect to internet. If you there is no problem with your internet connection, delete all your e-mails in Outlook and open Accounts menu from Tools options. There re-enter your user data ( username and password ). Also make sure that outgoing and incoming server are same. Close Outlook and open it again. Also download Outlook hotfix script from Microsoft and run it on your computer. You can find it here Outlook hotfix tool.

Hi,

To fix this error, all you have to do is changing decimal symbol to . (dot).  To do so:

1.    Open Control Panel, click Clock, Language, and Region, and then click Region and Language.

2.    Click the Formats tab, and then click Additional settings.

3.    In the Decimal symbol field, type . (dot), and then click OK two times.

4.    Restart the computer.
