Outlook 2003 error message about an old copy of the .OST file

Posts: n/a
      17th Jun 2007
I regularly get the following error:

Outlook 2003 is using an old copy of your offline folder file (.ost). Exit
outlook, delete the .ost file, and restart Outlook. A new file will be
automatically created the next time you initiate a send/receive.

Outlook 2003 with SP2 is installed on a laptop (Win XP SP2) and configured
for Cached Exchange mode.

Whenever I delete the existing OST file (located in C:\Documents and
Settings\username) and point Outlook to the location that I want the new OST
file to be created, it works for approx 1 week.

it then returns the same error message captioned above

Can anyone lend assistance to resolving this isssue?
