Resolving Reported Error 0x8004010F In Outlook 2010.


When you try to send or receive an email message using Office Outlook 2010 or Office Outlook 2013, you might encounter receiving “0x8004010F: Outlook data file cannot be accessed” or “0x8004010F: The operation failed. An object could not be found”. The problem is caused by corrupt Office Outlook profile.

To fix the problem, simply create a new profile. Click “Start”, “Control Panel”, “User Accounts”, and then “Mail”. In “Mail Setup – Outlook” dialog, click “Show Profiles”.

Office Outlook show profiles

On the next screen, select your Outlook profile then click “Properties”.

Office Outlook select profile

On the next screen, click “Data Files”.

Office Outlook data files

In “Account Settings” window, in “Data Files” tab, take note of the complete path of the PST file for your profile. It normally has a check to indicate it is the default data file.

Office Outlook get path

When you are finished, click “Close”. Now, to create a new profile, repeat the same steps until you reach the “Mail” dialog. In “Mail” dialog, click “Add” this time then enter a new profile name.

Office Outlook add new profile

Next, follow the same steps when you first create and setup a new account in Office Outlook. Make sure the incoming and outgoing servers are correct as well as the protocols used and their respective port numbers. Once a new account has been created, you need to configure Office Outlook to use the new profile you created as the default profile.

To do this, in the “Mail” dialog, under “When starting Microsoft Office Outlook, use this profile”, select “Always use this profile” then select the new profile you created from the dropdown list. Click “OK” when you are finished. See if this works.
