“managed MAPI service catastrophic error”
First bit of research brings up to this site with these possibilities:
The message Â« Managed MAPI Service Catastrophic Failure Â» appears to come from a wrong configuration from the Anti-Spam feature of Norton internet security.
To test if this applies to you can:
Launch Symantec Internet Security from the â€œactive icon barâ€ or how ever your PC is setup;
Click the â€œNorton Antispamâ€ button;
Click on the â€œAllowed listâ€ link;
Click on the â€œConfigureâ€ button;
Click the â€œImport Address Bookâ€ button;
In doing so you should see the message Â« Managed MAPI Service Catastrophic Failure Â» appear â€¦. Answer OK (once or more depending on how many MAPI are wrongly configured)â€¦ And the last message would be â€œNorton AntiSapm did not find any new addressesâ€; click OKâ€¦. And â€œOKâ€; And proceed to next stepâ€¦.
To correct the problem you can configure your Anti-Spam and remove unused services:
From the area titled â€œEmailâ€, click the â€œClient integrationâ€ button;
In this window, make sure only services you are using are checked; (Outlook, outlook expressâ€¦.); Click OK when done;
To test if configuration is correct, click the â€œImport address bookâ€ again, the message should no longer appear; if you have unchecked the correct servicesâ€¦
The response: OK, cool, that works.
