SEND/RECEIVE ERROR: 0x80004005 Operation Failed
Posted on 2004-10-04
On our company LAN we have a NON-EXCHANGE (i.e. WE DO NOT USE AN EXCHANGE SERVER) mail server which uses standard pop3 and smtp.
Everyone uses Outlook 2000 - 2003. Everyone's Outlook works fine with the exception of one user....
One user running WIN XP PRO SVC PK 1 (Microsoft Outlook 2003) gets a SEND/RECIEVE error when checking mail.
The error is 0x80004005 Operation Failed
I've done my searching on the net, KB articles, and EE to no avail, everything mentions something about an offline address book and/or something about an exchange server. Since we don't run an exchange server none of what I've found seems to apply.
THINGS I'VE TRIED ALREADY
- I've re-installed OFFICE 2003 using ADD/REMOVE re-install option to no avail.
- Deleted POP3 account, re-added it. to no avail.
- scanpst.exe did a PST scan to ensure the PST file was not corrupt (no avail).
I give up....any suggestions? Someone must have experienced this issue before.
