Solution: This is a common error message that occurs on the first day that a user joins our service and does not affect your ability to send or receive email. This error will not be present the next day and does not require any action from the user.

If you continue to see this error message after the first 2-3 days of signing up as a new customer, please follow this sequence of steps:

Step 1: From within Outlook click Tools -> Send/Receive -> Download Address Book -> Ok.

If you still receive this error message when sending or receiving please proceed to Step 2.

Step 2: Rebuild your offline files:



Go to C:\Documents and Settings\YourLoginName\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook and create a folder called tmp.
Move all of the files located into this folder.
Start Outlook and be patient as it regenerates a copy of your mailbox
Once you get the message "All folders are up to date" at the bottom right, try the send and receive

If you still receive this error message when sending or receiving please proceed to Step 3.

Step 3: Create a new profile for Outlook. Once the new profile is created, log in to the mailbox and wait for it to completely synch
