Error Message From Exchange Server

I am recieving an error message from specific users throught the network. I cannot seem to find any link between the users it is completly random.

Here is the error message they are recieving.
Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server' reported error (0x8004010F) : 'The operation failed. An object could not be found.'

This is happening in both Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007.

I believe the error is for the OAB but to my knowledge it is set up properly. I thought if it was incorectly configured then everyone would have the error not just random people through the building.

I also have a user that was recieving the error message and now all of a sudden it has stopped and everything seems to be working properly.

Any suggestions?

I have already done everything that document says. I will check to see what updates the user has or needs though.

I just didnt think it was an update problem because it was happening to randome people. One of them has outlook 2007 and the others have outlook 2003. Do you still think it could be an update problem.

In regards to the document i have even gone as far as creating an new OAB and pointing the mailbox database to another OAB that changed nothing so i pointed them back to the original (Default Offline Address Book). But i have multiple mailbox databases and it seems that random users of each database are having the problem.
