Outlook 2010 Sending' reported error (0x8004010F): "Outlook data file cannot be accessed.' RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently moved my outlook directory to a different drive as my C: drive was getting full. 

    Everything went smoothly except for now I cannot send emails from any of my addresses with the error "Sending' reported error (0x8004010F): "Outlook data file cannot be accessed.'" that I've associated with outlook.   Recently I uninstalled all of Microsoft Office (student) and reinstalled it on the new drive, still getting the same error.  I've tried following the steps at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2659085/en-us

    but when I go into the Control Panel to click on Mail (in this case Mail (32-bit) even though I run a 64-bit OS), the icon in the control panel is a piece of paper (leading me to believe it's broken) and when I click on it, nothing happens.  I don't mean my screen flickers or even thinks about doing anything with the swirly circle cursor... it does absolutely nothing.

    Run it until no error message appears.
