Access 2007 automation error - it is illegal to call out while inside

I have a access database with about 17000 contacts.

I email reports to customers through access which then goes through outlook.

Recently this has stopped working and i am receiving the error
-2147418107 (80010005) It is illegal to call out while inside message filter. The database is about 400MB is size so i tried using the compact and repair database option but had no luck.

Sometimes i will receive this error and other times it will just hang

The error happens on other computers at the workplace as well so its not isolated to a single computer

Is this a new problem you are experiencing?

17000 is a heck of a lot of contacts to contact via Access / Outlook.
