"Unable to open your default e-mail folders. You must connect to Microsoft Exchange Server computer with the current profile before you can synchronize your folders with your offline folder file"

Deleting the Outllok profile and recreating seemed to work. The fix worked the next day, not immediately. Thank you very much for the solution.
