When the forms cache seems to cause problems sporadically, and you cannot determine the cause of the problem, you can to set the ForceFormReload registry key in Outlook. When the ForceFormReload registry key is enabled, and Outlook encounters an error when opening an item that is based on a custom form, Outlook automatically clears the cache for this specific form.
Then, Outlook tries to open the item again. While this method does not correct the cause of the forms cache problem, this method does make the problem transparent to people who use custom forms.

Outlook – Fixing Outlook Red “X” Problem

April 23, 2007

Every few months, Outlook 2003 will get into a situation where it will no longer render images in the preview pane or the message window. If you reply to the message, then you will see the image.

Perplexed by the problem, I would take the brute force “Detect and Repair” solution but that isn’t always desirable as it resets all the Outlook settings and takes a while. Months ago, some one posted to an internal DL that the problem can be fixed by deleting the Outlook Temporary Cache folder. Since then I had forgotten this solution, and noticed the problem re-appeared.

It might irritate you and you feel that a new profile might not be a relevant solution for you:

Anyway, here is how you fix the problem.
1. Locate the Outlook Temporary Items folder by opening the Registry and locating
2. Navigate to the value of this Key. It should be something like: %USERPROFILE%\LocalSettings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK3D\ where OLK3D is some randomly generated string that always starts with OLK
3. Quit Outlook
4. Delete the contents of the folder
5. Launch Outlook
