I have the following scenario into an organization where the mailserver is an Exchange 2007 one. Everything is ok with only one exception. One of my users who has Outlook 2007 when using outlook from our LAN he sends and receive everything. But when using outlook with VPN connection then he get the following message: 0x8004010F: The operation Failed. An object cannot be found. But he gets the e-mails. How can I stop or solve that message?

Sounds like an autodiscover problem over the VPN connection.  This is usually down to the fact that the autodiscover is not woking on the OAB.

I would look towards outlook anywhere to collect email remotely instead of the VPN which is obviously having problems with DNS.
