Outlook 2010 is pointing to the old OAB GUID instead of the new one

if i login in to another PC/laptop i am able to download the OAB, the Autodiscover URL shows the new OAB Guid (on the problem pc) now how do i get outlook  to point to the new GUID? i tried deleting the Address book in local settings and its keeps getting created with an empty folder and the old OAB GUID

Hi All after a few Win 7 updates i no longer have the above issue I have no idea how I resolved this issue!!

Must be one of those things "Microsoft Plug And Pray"

Do you have cached mode turned on in the email account profile?

If so, turn it off and try to delete/reload the OAB.

If that does not work, run the Office Diagnostics.
If that does not work, it would be a [no-so] quick fix by recreating the email account.

Thanks!

I had this issue some time ago and the only way I could fix it was to create a new mail profile on the machine to replace the existing one.

Can you try to create the email profile temporarily on another user profile on that computer?

Thanks.

No Joy!!  The last thing that i can see that will have to be done is most probably reinstall win 7 but this is my very very last option

Yes.  That is true.. If the issues continue, a reload would be necessary.
