This error is typically the result of a corrupted profile. To work around this error, you need to delete the Outlook profile and create a new Outlook porfile.

Outlook 2003:
1. Go to Control Panel -> Mail -> Show Profiles
2. Click on "Add..." and use "MyOutlookOnline" for the Profile Name
3. Continue with the setup instructions for Outlook 2003 - start at Section C, step # 6.
4. Once finished creating the new profile, make sure to select "MyOutlookOnline" under the "Always use this profile."
