Errors syncing SharePoint 2007 lists with Outlook 2007

  • Comments 2
I used to get a very frequent error whenever I got my document library offline to
Outlook 2007.
Task 'SharePoint' reported error (0x8000FFFF) : 'An error occurred either in
Outlook or SharePoint. Contact the SharePoint site administrator.'
or
'Outlook cannot connect to Windows Sharpoint Services site.'
If anyone is facing similar error, try doing NET STOP SENS at the command prompt.
This stops the System Event Notification Service.
After stopping this service, all connections to offline calendars, document libraries
started working fine.
Although I am yet to determine the reason for this :)

  • Synchronizing a SharePoint Calendar with Outlook has been a problem not just for us, but for others as well. We have been connecting the calendars the recommended way Actions->Connect to Outlook. The calendar gets added and populated the first time but subsequent changes that are made to the SharePoint calendar are not updated to the Outlook calendar. When running a Send\Receive the following error is given:

    Task ‘SharePoint’ reported error (0×8000FFFF) : ‘An error occurred either in

    Outlook or SharePoint. Contact the SharePoint site administrator.’

    I have check and rechecked the settings in both SharePoint and Outlook, nothing that I did seamed to fix the issue. So I opened a SharePoint site that I had installed on my local machine and connected the calendar from that site to my Outlook and was able to receive updated with no error. The only piece that was not the same in the two instances was that Exchange was out of the picture. After talking with a coworker we realized that a client of ours started seeing the same issues after doing a migration to Exchange 2007.

    I am not a Exchange guy so I will be meeting with one of our network engineers to see what we can find.
