Running on Exchange 2003.  This error is thrown whenever a 2007 outlook client downloads the address book.  I have taken the following steps.  Confirmed the OAB exists and is pointing at the correct mail server.  Public folders > Offline Address Book > OAB version 2,3a,4 all have exchange server as status.  Logging on OALGen is max and shows no errors when rebuilding.  Permissions changed for everyone to read,execute results in no change.  Clients not using cached mode. Added a new address in GAL and rebuilt GAL, client downloads, receives 0x8004010F error but the new address appears properly in address book.  Logged on through Citrix and using Outlook 2003 attempted to download address book and received the following error: An error occurred while opening the Microsoft Exchange offline address book files on the Exchange Server."
Recreating profile does not resolve.  Currently it seems the error is only cosmetic but requests have been made for it to be removed.

 Anyone have any ideas?

go to your mailbox database -> right click properties and make sure the offline address book is assigned to to it

It wasn't assigned to it. I have assigned it but still seem to get the error.

how many mailbox databases do you have ? make sure they are all assigned an offline address book and a public folder.

If you just did , try rebooting the server
