Outlook displays the error “Cannot display the folder. Out of memory or system resources. Close some windows or programs and try again.”

Behavior
When trying to view the Out’n About Statusboard, an affected user gets the following Outlook error message:
Cannot display the folder. Out of memory or system resources. Close some windows or programs and try again.
Recommended Fix
Please check if the user has multiple Out’n About clients installed at once. This may occur when one copy of the addin was installed manually, and one via managed group policies.
Uninstall the older version of the client, and Out’n About should behave normally again.

User’s cannot connect to the Out’n About! for Outlook Server

If user’s cannot connect to the Out’n About! for Outlook Server and you are sure the service is running, you probably have a firewall that is not allowing TCP/IP port 23079 inbound on the server.

When Outlook starts, we search all folders within the default users’ inbox parent folder for the existence of the Out’n About! folder before creating it since some users like to hide their complex folder trees and use Outlook shortcuts.
It is possible that you deleted the Out’n About! folder and it is still sitting in your ‘Deleted Items’ folder or simply moved the folder where it is not visible on load. To recover from the deleted scenario, you either need to restore the deleted […]

Out’n About! addin does not load (the Out’n About! menu is not visible).

Note: Out’n About! for Outlook is installed as an administrative install, so the Out’n About! addin will not be visible in the Outlook Options dialog under ‘COM Add-Ins…’.

Click the “Disabled Items…” button.
Select the “Out’n About! for Outlook (OutAboutOutlook.dll)” item.
Click the “Enable” button.
Restart Outlook.
