Outlook 2010 Error: The attempted operation failed object could not be found


  • I have tried and tried and tried to figure this error out. I installed outlook, added my credentials properly into the mail settings and I receive this error. No, it's not a godaddy issue. This is straight out of the box and all I find are godaddy related issues. I cannot get this resolved. I have changed the .pst file, I have removed and reentered the email settings, I have searched for TWO days on Microsoft's site and cannot find an actual resolution, and no, I can't afford the $295/hr they will gladly charge me for something that didn't work 10 minutes after a new purchace, download and install.

    I am not on Exchange, I do know my ISP credentials and I know they are correct. Any older version around the house works just fine, just not 2010. So glad I upgraded.

    There has tobe a solution to this.

  • TO follow up... I create an email, send it and my outbox is empty, inbox is empty, sent items is empty. Basically the email dissapears. The web based version of my email is full of test messages, so I know it's working, the disconnect is outlook itself.

  • Having the same issue.  Did you ever find a solution?

  • I did. I found my own solution. I went through outlook and deleted every reference to the mailbox, then closed outlook. Deleted the file itself off the hard drive and opened Outlook and created a new instance of the mailbox and it worked.
