Exchange Offline Address Book Error

Howdy,
I am needing some assistance in troubleshooting an OAB error.  Several users have reported that Outlook (up to date 2007) gives the following error:

Exchange Offline Address Book Error
10:33:20 Synchronizer Version 12.0.6529
10:33:20 Synchronizing Mailbox 'Joe Smith'
10:33:20 Done
10:37:21 Microsoft Exchange offline address book
10:37:21         0X80080005

We are running Exchange 2007 SP3 (on 2003 64bit).  I see no related errors in the server's event logs related to OAB.  I have turned up OAB's logging, rebuilt OAB, and it did find some errors.  We resolved those issues and re-ran the process and no errors were records during the process.  I have been unable to find much on this specific error on the web.
Any ideas?

Thanks!

do you by anychace use a proxy server in internet explorer?
if so can you ensure the Exchange servers IP anddress, FQDN and NETBIOS name are in the exclusion list.

Thanks for the reply.  We are not using any sort of proxy server unfortunately though.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

hm.. ok not found or access denied

is this the only user ?
if this is for multiple users .. make sure that the mailbox store has a default offline address book assigned in the mailbox store properties

secondly for a specific user check the msexchuseoab attribute.. if that is missing

its looks like a workstation issue.
I would suggest you to try to run in outlook on safemode and check it.

Howdy,
Multiple users (but not all) are seeing this message.  I checked the Server and the correct OAB is configured with the Mailbox Database.  I also doublechecked that the msexchuseoab is set correctly.
Thanks!

Hi,

Error might be generated due to OST file corrupted also, please try to create new profile, or disbale cached mode and then reneabled which will download new OST, might resolve the issue
