Outlook 2003 / Exchange 2003 Sync Error Messages (8004010F)

Within the last week I started having sync issues appearing in my outlook with error code 8004010F. I do not believe it is related to the OAB as the folders having the issues are not the OAB plus I did the rebuild on the OAB (Recipients --> Offline Address Book --> Right click rebuild). At first I thought it was a problem with my .ost so I disabled it then deleted it. (Worked in Outlook 2000 years ago) but then I lost several emails that hadn't been sync'd. The subscription folder was just receipts of magazines so it wasnt a big deal at frist but now I am getting it in client folders that are more critical. In one case the list of failed folders was about 30 deep.

Here is the Outlook Log:

17:18:16 Synchronizer Version 11.0.8000
17:18:16 Synchronizing Mailbox 'USER NAME'
17:18:16 Synchronizing local changes in folder 'Subscriptions'

I dont recall if I have tried this on my desktop. I do have a laptop that I use when I travel and it also is having similar messages. I will admit that I have not looked closely to compare the two systems. I will check and try the new profile. Im not ruling out that as a solution but I dont think it will work. I will most likely have to to duplicate sorting efforts and emails as a new profile wont have my changes. Im not to thrilled about that. Other ideas during this testing would be appreciated. =)

I am defraging my database and running integ checks currently to see if the issue is with the database. Once it is done I will try a new profile.

Use PFDAVAdmin to export folder/item level permissions of system folders / Public Folder
and change Default role from "none" to "Reviewer" on organizational form under EFORMS

Exchange Defrag and ISINTEG checks are completed and did not solve the problem. Starting with new profile next will be PFDAVAdmin.

I am curious though as to what PFDAVAdmin and EFORMS will accomplish when the problem is in the private mailbox and not public folders.

Life and clients have kept me from troubleshooting any further. The sync issues do appear on my laptop and desktop, also from a new profile within the desktop. Some emails and folders do not appear in each profile due to the sync issue. I have moved all emails from all the folders in all profiles to the main inbox. So far for about 3 days now there has not been any sync issues. As far as I can guess the issues happen when I create about the 10th subfolder. all new folders and anything added to new folders then start to get sync errors but as soon as remove the new folder it works. Are there any known limitations to the amount of folders that can be sync'd offline? It does not seem to matter what the type of the folder is (ie Mail, Task, Calendar) nor the location (ie Sub of Root Mailbox or sub of Inbox, or calendar).

I just tried to do the PFDAVAdmin but I think I am lost. I tried using the currently logged in user, my user account and also specifying the administrator account. When I access my mail box using the 3 user accounts I get a 403 forbidden. When I access public folders and system folders I dont see where to change default role. The everyone group has reviewer status already. WHen I check the DACL I get a message saying missing ANONYMOUS. I dont know if that matters as I dont want anonymous access.

I have moved all my sorted emails from their folders and put them back in the inbox and verified modifications on laptop, desktop and handheld. Removed all folders and basically reset folder structure back to default. All sync issues have currently been solved.

I then upgraded to Office Enterprise 07 on both desktop and laptop. I now have a new problem where the time of an appointment is off by one hour on the handheld even though all clocks and timezones are set the same. Gotta love technology.

I just had a client experiencing this issue, along with getting prompted for authenticaiton on exchange 2007 (Outlook 2007 Clients).  They also began sending out Virus Detected:"Engine Error" messages.  It turned out to be the default installation of Forefront mucking things up.  Removed Forefront, and all is well.
