"The Operation Failed" error
Posted on 2003-10-29
I use windows 2000 Professional and Office 2000.
I am using Outlook 2000 to connect to my POP3 Internet Mail at my ISP.
I can open Outlook OK and it operates OK with no problems.
Apart from the following...
If I close outlook, for some reason it must still poll for new mail, when it receives email, the envelope icon appears in the system tray. If I hover the cursor over the envelope it pops up "you have new unopened items" If I click on this envelope it responds with an error message "The Operation Failed".
If I then open up outlook by double clicking on the normal outlook icon, outlook opens up OK and I get 2 envelope icons in the system tray, I can then read, send and organise email successfully with absolutely no problems at all.
Any pointers or solutions?
