This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Assuming a repeat of the scanpst doesn't fix the problem, the easiest solution is probably to create new PST, copy everything into it, make it the default delivery location and delete the old one.

Many thanks, I kinda realsied that may be the only way out, I did a half way measure which was to back it all up, deltete the pst and make a new one and then reinstate the old one and that fooled it into loosing the reference flags to the deletet emails. Thanks for your advice and help – Chris Jul 10 '09 at 12:49
