Dear All,

Finally I got a solution for this case

First I enabled the event log for OAL using exchange 2007 cmd let

Set-EventLogLevel "MSExchangeSA\OAL Generator" -Level high

After that I got a detailed logs on event viewer (application log). By noticing the event viewer, I found four mailboxes OAL generation fails due to invalid smtp address.

I recreated the mailboxes for four users and clients starts OAL downloading without any error. Now my send & receive works without 0x80040011B error

dear experts thanks for ur support and pls close this case.

Hi

This error usually doesn't effect Outlook or Exchange in a manner that you won't be able to work. I noticed that you checked the MS article, but I have found another one that you can have a look at:

Hope this helps.

Hi,

I've checked out some blogs and it seems as though you'll need to delete and rebuild the OAB. This is a very robust method, but it seemed to work for a couple of people.

The clients wil automatically download it when it's done.

Dear mgonullu:

The steps in your link (http://forums.techarena.in/small-business-server/740440.htm) already tested by me. I checked by creating a new profile, I checked the antiviurs, I disabled cached mode. See all users are facing this issue....so I suspect definitely it could be a server problem. I need ur help to locate the same.

Dear mgonullu:

All the clients are outlook 2003. Here we don't have outlook 2007.

It will be good to check if this problem is appearing only on Outlook 2003.
Any Service Pack available for Outlook 2003?
