GeneralOutlook error: no one's home, please call back later Pin

When I attempt to click on a folder under the Outlook Calendar option I get the following:
https://i.stack.imgur.com/KoLDT.png[^]

All these years later and still the dialog format is super wide (could've used a \n in there) and the message just seems ridiculous.

Here's the text of the message:
Outlook said:
"Cannot expand the folder. The set of folders cannot be opened. Microsoft Exchange is currently busy. If this message is still displayed in 30 minutes, contact your Exchange Administrator."

1. Ok, so to the user "cannot expand the folder" and "set of folders cannot be opened" is just about the same thing so don't be so long-winded.

2. "If this message is still displayed in 30 minutes..." Well, if the user doesn't click the OK button then this message will still be displayed and if they do click the OK button it will not so... Sigh | :sigh:

3. Exchange? I thought I was using Outlook. (From a non-informed user's perspective)

Restart
I sent this to a friend and she said, "Oh, I just restart Outlook whenever that happens."

The solution cracks me up as much as the problem. Why doesn't MS just restart Outlook for me when that happens? It could even say, "We need to restart Outlook now."

Error messages are interesting to me as a dev and I usually get them wrong the first half dozen times too. I always have to go back and keep altering them.
