Outlook 98 error: opperation failed

By jcordeiro ·
When I open outlook 98 wich is connected to an exchange server I get an error message. The error message says "The Operatin Failed" and all you can do is click ok and everything after that seems to work fine.

This error comes up when you open outlook.

Any suggestins would be most appreciated. Thanks

Outlook 98 error: opperation failed

1) Are you physically connected (either via the network cable or a modem line) to the network where the Exchange server resides? (If yes, then you should not get this message -- If no, then connect to that network).

2) Is the Exchange server doing this for everyone else? (If yes, then the problem is the Exchange server; look at it's event viewer to find out what is going on -- If no, then look at your configuration and see what has changed).

Generally after "The operation failed...." you get a bit more specific messsag that may say "server is not responding" or something like that.

The reason everything appears okay after that is that you may be opening your old e-mail from a PST file on your local hdd or that it finally makes a connection and you are getting your new mail.

If you are getting new e-mail with this initial error, then I suggest that you remove Outlook 98 from your startup folder (the network might not be fully connected when outlook starts) and essentially start up Outlook manually after your desktop is fully loaded.

I am connected to the exchange server and I am getting new e-mail and it is like nothing is wrong. Except for the fact that this anoying message keeps poping up everytime outlook starts.

No one else is having this problem either. It is not my computer so I don't know if something has changed by the end user or not. And it's not easy to get a strait answer out them either.

There must be some other funtion that is trying to do something but it can't.

Make sure all your Personal Folders are pathed correctly, and make sure you haven't added MSMail or another service you don't have to your Services list (where the Exchange Server and Personal Folders are listed).

Who is logged on when message appears? Does it occur if you log on as an admin? If it does there is something wrong with the users account on the Exchange server. If it doesn't then it is something wrong on local PC configuration. If that is thecase I would check their profile in Outlook.
