Getting strange errors during Send/Receive in Outlook 2010

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have a client who recently started experiencing a strange error in Outlook 2010 during his Send/Receive.

The computer is a Dell Inspiron N7010 running Win7 Home Premium 64.
The email account is POP/SMTP.

The two other workers in his office are not having any issues connecting to the same email server.

The symptom is that the Send/Receive stalls part way through, eventually timing out with Task 'user@domain - Sending' reported error (0x8004010F) : 'The operation failed. An object cannot be found.'

I've run SCANPST on the primary PST file.
I've updated Windows and MS Office products.
I've installed device driver updates.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
