Outlook 2003 Copy/Paste msg - Not enough storage is available to process this command

I have a strange issue and I'm looking around the newsgroups, but
cannot find anything. I find several people with the same issue, and
no replies or replies that are totally worthless.

Problem: I'm cutting/pasting outlook message files from my mailbox
into a network folder. This process works for a certain amount of
files (exact amount unable to be determined), but at one point my
system starts throwing the error "not enough storage is available to
process this command". The ONLY thing I can do so far to fix it is
reboot.

I cannot keep rebooting as I have to do this multiple times throughout
the day.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Before anyone replies, please don't
waste my time with suggestions such as "do you have enough hard drive
space?" or "how much memory do you have as you may not have enough" or
"have you cleaned your temporary internet files?"... I need real
suggestions. I have Gigs upon Gigs of space free. I have half a gig
of memory. I have cleaned every temp folder I can find.

If it were one of those issues, then rebooting wouldn't help the
problem. All I can figure is there is some sort of temporary storage
spot in memory/disk (i.e. pagefile) that is becoming full during the
pasting of the messages, and the reboot clears it out. I need to find
out where the problem lies.

Can someone please help?!?!

Thank you in advance for any input you can provide.
