please check the below KB:


Turn off cached mode, check if you can send and receive messages, if you can then delete the OST file and turn on cached mode again.

Check to see if Outlook says it is trying to download the Offline Address Book or not when you get that error. You should see what it is doing on the Send/Receive and also in your Outlook\Sync Issues folder

thank you guys, just going through that first part, I didn't create a new address list, I go confused when trying to add one, closed out of the properties and just right clicked and rebuilt, seemed to fix the problem
yes it will take only some time to rebuild your OAB depends on the size of it
