Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server' reported error (0x8004010F) : 'The operation failed. An object could not be found.'

I recently had Exchange 2003 Enterprise Edition with SP2 installed on server A. We recently moved the mailboxes off of Server A onto our new Exchange Server server B using the mailbox move feature in users profiles. Server B is running Windows Server 2003 SP1 as is ServerA. Once the mailboxes were moved everything was working fine. Everyone could log in and receive and send mail without issue. However, my assistant was a little zealous in getting things set up and uninstalled Exchange off of Server A before the replication times. Now when all the Outlook clients click send/receive the recieve the error:

Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server' reported error (0x8004010F) : 'The operation failed. An object could not be found.'

They can send and receive mail fine and everything else works but this annoying error keeps coming up.

I have tried every doc and link suggested on this site and Microsoft's and none of them have fixed the issue. I will even post the log below and it doesnt even show the error.

2006.07.05 10:14:09 Microsoft Exchange Server: Synch operation started (flags = 00000001)
2006.07.05 10:14:09 Microsoft Exchange Server: UploadItems: 0 messages to send
2006.07.05 10:14:09 Microsoft Exchange Server: Synch operation completed

I have remade, rebuilt and everything else associated with the Offline Address Book and nothing worked.

I appreciate the help.

Have you rehomed everything else?
Domain controllers and Exchange servers used for address book use etc? It could be that the content isn't being written in to the correct place.

It is unfortunate that you didn't follow my best practise of ensuring that everything is replicated before mailboxes are moved to the new server. It wouldn't have been an issue then. Everyone is in too much of a rush to get mailboxes moved before the public and system folders are in place and then wonder why things don't work.

Make sure that the Offline Address Book system folders have at least one replica in them. Without that in place you can recreate the OABs as much as you like - Exchange will not know where to store the content.

I have done that according to the Microsoft Article. It has the new Exchange server listed as the Replica server. However, I still receive the error.
