MAPI 1.0 [000004c2] Error in Microsoft Outlook

I bought a new computer yesterday, and now when I try to set-up Outlook on my computer it displays the error as follows: “The limit for logging reached while waiting for system resources. Try again. MAPI 1.0 [000004C2]”. I tried to set up Outlook by going through Control Panel’s Mail option. I tried many times but I am getting the same error every time.

I have set up Outlook 2013 (but not perfectly) on my new PC. The problem is that, when I open Outlook and immediately start working on it then there is no problem and no error is displayed. However, when I open Outlook and wait for some time to start working on it then the client displays the following message:
and it works only after exiting & restarting Outlook.

Elements That Cause This Error in Outlook

  • When compatibility mode is turned on.
  • If in case the PST file turns corrupted.
  • When incorrect Registry key is configured.

    Other Workarounds That You May Try If the Problem Persist

    • In the How would you like repair your office program section, select online repair >> click on Repair.
    Despite following the steps given above if you are still seeing the discussed error in Outlook then try to do the follow the given steps:

    Try installing and uninstalling MS Office

    Delete MAPI32.dll File
    • To delete msmapi32.dll navigate to this path in your Windows Explorer: C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Msmapi\1033
    • Now right click on MSMapi32.dll and click on Rename.
    • In the Rename box, change the filename to MSMapi32.old and start your Outlook.


    If the above problem still persists due to compatibility issue or wrong registry key set-up, then you can use the manual solution. However, if you’re seeing this error because of a corrupt Outlook PST file then it may be difficult for you to solve the problem manually. For non-technical users the manual solution sometimes creates problem. Moreover, some users don’t even find the manual method helpful because of it is time consuming process. Hence, to eradicate this error completely from Outlook, I would recommend using the free demo version of Outlook PST file recovery software to repair corrupt PST file.
