How to solve Exchange Error 0x8004010f ?

Microsoft Exchange Error 0x8004010f is a very common problem among the MS Outlook users. When you try to synchronize your .ost file with your Exchange server mailbox to access your data, it shows some strange behavior. An Outlook .ost file is an exact replica of Exchange server mailbox, stored on client hard disk locally. Actually, when you synchronize with the Exchange Server mailbox, OST file is automatically converted into Outloook .pst file and is updated. However, if the synchronization process terminates due to any reason, conversion can not take place completely and you will not be able to access your mailbox. In such cases, you require to manually convert ost to pst using an advance third-party tool.

When you try to synchronize your .ost file or Offline address list on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010/2007/2003 in MS Outlook 2003, you may get the below error message in Sync Issues folder:

“0×8004010F An object could not be found”

After encountering above error when you try to send an email, you receive further the following error message in Microsoft Office Outlook:

“Task ‘Microsoft Exchange Server’ reported error (0×8004010F): ‘The operation failed. An object could not be found.’”
Exchange Error 0x8004010f
Exchange Error 0x8004010f

This unexpected behavior of outlook terminates the process of synchronization and you can not connect to your Exchange Server mailbox. Furthermore, it stops OST to PST conversion process.

Root of the problem:

There are multiple reasons for why an Outlook e-mail client can receive this synchronization error. Some of the most common causes of this error are mentioned below:

• Offline address book list objects have a missing or incorrect address list.
• Offline address book list objects include missing address list.
• Send/As permission changes in the store affect users accounts with no mailbox full rights to another mailbox.
• Multiple OAB Version folders exist of the same type.
• Clients are attempting to download the OAB files from a public folder store that have not received the replicated updates.
• The OST file is either corrupt or unusable.

Work Around:

Try any of below mentioned methods to work around this problem:

• If you view Properties in Address lists setting of Exchange System Manager, you can fix the problem by verifying the address list validity. If the list is not valid, you must add a new one.

• If you view the Properties in Offline address list setting of Exchange System Manager, verify the validity of offline address book in the Offline address list.

If any of the above said method does not help you to fix the error, it may be the case of corruption and you need to repair your file. You need to convert outlook OST to PST file using third-party applications so that it could be easily synchronized with Exchange server.
