I am getting the following error in Outlook 2003 doing a send/receive.  I am running Exchange 2003:

The Microsoft Exchange Server reported error 0x800401f.  The operation failed.  An object could not be found.  I have followed the instructions in the link, but have had no success.  Any ideas?

Without knowing which bit it is failing to find, further diagnosis is impossible.
The answer I gave in that question is the most common reason, but you need to look at the sync logs to see which folder is throwing the error.



I just figured it out.  For some strange reason, the Mailbox Store's entry in it's properties tab for the 'Offline Address List' dissappeared.  It was there before, then it was not.  I had to run oabinteg.exe to find this out.  I overlooked it, because I didn't change it.  Now I know.
