Windows 7: Outlook Error: The attempted operation failed. An object could not be

Outlook Error: The attempted operation failed. An object could not be


I have an error using Microsoft Outlook 2010.

This happens every time I try to reply or forward an email. I get an error that says, "The attempted operation failed. An object could not be found."

I am not running any add-ons.

I have read that I need to make sure that I am using the correct smtp and I am. is what is in the outgoing mail server. You can verify that this is the correct smtp at How to set up MS Outlook 2010 with POP3 | 123-reg Support

What other options can I look at to get this sorted?

Thank you very much for your help.

I have found a solution to this after a bunch of searching.

I found this at: "The attempted operation failed. An object cannot be found." - Microsoft Community

and it is the post by "Professional Support" on January 31, 2012.

I hope that this helps somebody else also.
