    If the problem persists even after you apply all the steps in them, please provide more information, like the version of Office you're using, how many accounts and/or data files added in your Outlook, etc.

  • Hi ,

    What's the version of your Outlook client? (File > Office Account > About Outlook). Please make sure you have upgraded your Outlook to the latest version.

    >> When trying to open outlook this error comes up "Outlook has exhausted all shared resources, please close all messaging applications and restart Outlook (example: Skype for Business). 
    I did some research about the error and found that it is mostly related to the pst files connected in Outlook.
    Did you connect any pst files to your Outlook client? If so, please firstly try to remove all the pst files you connected in Outlook and then only re-open the pst file you need to see if the issue has any difference.

    If you did connect pst files to Outlook, to confirm if the issue is related to your pst files, if possible, it is suggested to connect your pst files to other computers and see if the issue has any difference.

    Besides, as I know, corrupted profiles can lead this issue, so please try creating and using a new Outlook profile via Control Panel > Mail > Show profile and see if there is any difference.

    Add-ins in your Outlook may also cause issues like this. It is suggested to start your Outlook in safe mode (Press Win + R, type “outlook /safe”, press Enter.) and see if it works.

    Here is some other information related to your issue, for your reference: Running out of Shared Resources in Outlook 2016.

    If this is not your case, please provide me with more information related your issue for further research.

    Hope this can be helpful.

    Regards,
