Outlook 2010: “0x8004010F: Outlook data file cannot be accessed”

A client of mine was having the error 0x8004010F in Outlook 2010.  I repaired the PST and it fixed 30 or so errors but I was still having the issue. I ended up creating a new Outlook profile using the following link...
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2289904

After creating the new profile I could not open or export the previous PST.  I realized she had checked the option Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP checked.  Once I unchecked that Outlook 2010 could open & export the previous PST.

Speed up Outlook 2007

If Outlook 2007 has been running slower then usual you can try disabling Add-ins that are not being used.

To do this Open up the Trust Center by navigating to Tools –> Trust Center on the menu.

On the left-hand pane, choose Add-ins, and then near the bottom of the window you’ll see a button that will let you manage your COM Add-ins.

From this window you can disable any addins that aren't in use.   Here are some I've disabled...

  • Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging - Disable this if you aren't using Exchange.
  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Colleague Import Add-in - Disable this if you aren't using Sharepoint.
  • Microsoft Outlook Mobile Service - Disable this if you are not sending text  messages from Outlook.
  • iTunes Outlook AddIn - Disable this if you are not syncing your calendar or contacts with an iTunes device.
