“Hello everyone, I use MS Outlook 2010 to manage my mail accounts in offline mode. Hence, I have created Offline folder OST file on it. But, today as I click on Outlook to access many of my important emails, I’m been invited with a message called, Outlook internal error 0000000E. I even tried to convert this inaccessible OST file to PST, but it didn’t work. Can anyone please suggest me how to fix this internal error on Outlook OST file and to convert it to PST file? Thanks in advance.”

Microsoft Outlook, one of the leading email client is used on each and every computer to manage mail accounts. And most of the employees of business sectors use Outlook just to manage their mail accounts in Offline mode by creating OST file with the help of Exchange Server. As all know that, OST file is the duplicate copy of data from Exchange mail account and changes made to OST file contents should be synchronized with Exchange Server account in order to update it. Unfortunately, this OST file on one’s system drive can get corrupt in number of ways and might throw error as mentioned in the above scenario. So, here let us know more about Internal Error code 0000000E on MS Outlook.

What is Internal Error (code=0000000E) and what causes this error on Outlook:

Along with online mode, Outlook is also designed to work in offline mode by creating OST file on system drive. All changes made to the data present in Outlook OST file on system will get updated in Exchange Server mailbox soon after re-establishing connection between them. This process is referred as Synchronization with Exchange Server. Certain times, due to errors during synchronization OST file gets corrupt and then throws the error message, Internal error code=0000000E. On some computers, the same internal error might get displayed with code=00000003. Apart from error / interrupted synchronization, Outlook can also throw the above error when OST file is corrupt due to reasons like:

  • Abrupt termination of Outlook / system due to power surge or forceful shutdown process
  • OST file exceeding its limited file size
  • Incorrect preferences settings in Outlook
  • Abnormal way of creating OST file
  • Unorthodox way of changing Outlook version from old to newer
  • Malware intrusion
  • Hard drive crash due to file system corruption or increasing bad sectors

When Outlook OST file is inaccessible due to internal error; then inbuilt integrity check tool, ScanOST might get handy in fixing that OST. But, most of the times Scanost.exe fails to fix severe corruption issues of OST file. Also, this integrity check tool is not available in Outlook 2010 and its above versions. Hence, it is recommended to use third party tools to fix Outlook internal error by converting that OST file to PST.
