Clicking an Outlook (local Postoffice) Search Folder gives "The attempted operation failed. An object could not be found."

Last Modified: 2018-01-17
I tried starting Outlook in Safe mode and with the /Cleanfinders option, but neither worked. I found the following 823127  reference in a Microsoft support page (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/831402/how-to-troubleshoot-search-folders-in-outlook-2010,-outlook-2007,-and-outlook-2003) but it is a broken link.

823127 "The operation failed" error message when you click a Search Folder

the 823127 is a link ( https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/823127 ) but the page is not found.
