When you try to synchronize the offline address list on a Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 server in Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, you may receive the following error message in the Sync Issues folder: 0x8004010F An object could not be found

If you try to send an e-mail message after you receive this error message, you may receive the following error message in Outlook 2003:

Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server' reported error (0x8004010F): 'The operation failed. An object could not be found.'

This problem may occur if one of the following conditions is true:

1. When you view Properties in the Address lists setting in Exchange System Manager, one of the following conditions is true:

  • The offline address book list object has a missing address list. 
  • The offline address book list object has an incorrect address list.

2. When you view Properties in the Offline address list setting in Exchange System Manager, one of the following conditions is true:

  • The offline address book list object has a missing address list. 
  • The offline address book list object has an incorrect address list.

  • Hi Dave,

    I am facing a simialr issue. I have moved a couple users mailbox to the new server (exchange 2000 with SP3), since then the users started complaining  0x8004010F  in sync issues folder and I have moved my mailbox also and I also started getting the same error. The new server is pointing the defaukt offline address book which is same as that of the old server.

    I have compared the mailbox stores of both the server using adsiedit. The attribute

    msexchangeuseoab

    is pointing to

    CN=Default Offline Address List,CN=Offline Address Lists,CN=Address Lists Container,CN=<org>,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=corp,DC=network.

    And the users who are on the old server are not facing this issue. Any help is higly appreciated.

  • Which public folder store is the client going to and do you have replicas of the OAB folders there?

  • There are a multiple reasons for why an Outlook client can receive the 0x8004010f sync error. Unfortunately,

  • free myspace flash layouts events page

  • When it comes to downloading an OAB the following error code [ 0X8004010F ] is the biggest pain for everyone,
