My problem is not the the restore or re-creataion of outlook.pst but is to 
understand why outlook.pst is corrupted when I open OUTLOOK-2000 or 98 ecc. 
I have this problem only when I use samba (2.2.5) on HP-UX 11.
In other company I have  server  linux (RH 7.3) with samba and 20 PC
that  have all your files and mail-files (outlook ecc.) saved in 
share-directory in linux-server but in this company I have no problems.  
I have completely forgotten to have the system-linux.(uptime 100 days).
So I thinks that my problem is  samba in HP-UX 11 whit the management
of outlook.pst into share-directory of HP-9000 .
I have try with oplocks yes and no but problem is unsolved.

Thank and regards

I just wanted to clarify to be certain... did you restore or re-create
outlook.pst?  Removing the source of corruption will not fix a corrupted

I have alredy changed oplocks values and I have upgraded last version of
samba for HP-UX 11 :( ver. 2.2.5 ).
My problem has not been solved yet.
I have same old PC with WIN 95 and first version of WIN98 that casually
when I open OUTLOOK stop with message :outlook.pst is corrupted.
This PC open also EXCEL,WORD,ACCESS ecc. files that don't
give some problems.Only outlook.pst !!!!

I think that the solution for this old PC is to change it .

Microsoft *.pst files cause problems with oplocks.  In your global settings

kernel oplocks = no
oplocks = no
level2 oplocks = no

This should correct your corruption problem.

In general, it is good safe practice to keep the oplocks off.
