Can no longer move messages to folders in Outlook 2003

    I have been using Outlook 2003 for a year and a half, not connected to
    Exchange. I have been able to move messages to folders. Suddenly the program
    is not letting me do that, telling me that I do not have permission to create
    entries in those folders. It tells me that I need to change the properties
    for the folders, but that option is greyed out when I check the properties
    box. It says that I need to check with my administrator or the folder owner
    to change properties. That sounds like an instruction for someone connected
    to an Exchange server. This just started happening.

    Did you upgrade from an earlier version of outlook, and as a result still
    using a 97 - 2002 format data file?
    (Properties>Advance, of the Personal Folders will show the format)
