MS Outlook Shows Error Message Internal Error Code= 0000000E

MS Outlook has two types of data files OST and PST. While PST is stored online on server the OST or (Offline Storage Table) is stored on the local computer which is a replica of PST.

  1. This article needs scooed properly. 1) A PST file does not have to be stored on the server, which is how this reads. PST files often host archives or backups. Many IT professionals avoid PST files like the plague, they are prone to corruption. OST files are pretty much the standard for most protocols or using an account in CEM mode.
