- Error 0x800CCC80
One of the most common send and receive errors in Outlook is error 0x800CCC8. Users face the error notification like “None of the authentication methods supported by this client are supported by your server.” A user may face this error when he or she is trying to send an Outlook email.
Solution: This error indicates that something is wrong with your outgoing mail server settings. To fix this error, you will need to check your account settings and edit them properly. Follow the below-mentioned steps for the same:
- Go to the File option in Outlook.
- There select Account Settings from the options.
- Make a double-click on your email account and select More Settings from the options.
- Then select Outlook Server. Once you are there, check these two options:
- My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication.
- Log on to incoming server before sending mail
- “The operation failed. An object could not be found”
You are trying to send an email from Outlook and facing the issue in doing the same. The error pops up like “Object not found” or “The operation failed. An object could not be found”. You might face this error because your SMTP settings are incorrect, or your Outlook profile is corrupt, or PST files were deleted or relocated.
Solution: Depending on the cause of the problem, there can be three solutions to this problem. If the SMTP settings are wrong, try to remove your email account and add it again. While adding the Outlook email account again, ensure that you do not use auto-detect mail server settings. Add the SMTP values manually this time. If you do not know the values, contact your email provider. If Your PST was relocated or deleted, then create a new profile and add your missing PST file again.
If your Outlook profile is corrupt, then try the below-mentioned fix:
- Search for the Control Panel in the search bar and open it.
- Look for the Mail category and click on it.
- In Mail Setup, from the options and click on Show Profiles.
- Now, click on the Add button to add a new profile.
- Add all your required details over there and finish the process.
- “Outlook is unable to connect to the proxy server”
You will face this error when you try to send or receive emails in Outlook via proxy server. You may face it because of an outdated Windows root certificate or because you have used a self-signed certificate.
Solution: The problem here is arising due to the Windows root certificate. So, first, try to look for the latest updates for the root certificate list. Once decided, install them properly.
If it is arising due to a self-signed certificate, then remove it. After removing the certificate, import it to the trusted Authorities list.
- Error 0x8004210A
Error 0x8004210A appears when a user is trying to send or receive emails from Outlook. People have also faced this error with an error notification stating, “the operation timed out while waiting for a response from the receiving server”. You may face this error because the firewall is blocking the send/receive job, antivirus is interfering with your incoming and outgoing emails or slow mail server connection.
Solution: If a slow connection is a reason for the error, then check your internet connection. If the speed is slow, then close all other programs, Windows, and apps running on the internet.
If your antivirus is interfering with the emails, then disable it and try the process again.
If the firewall is the reason for this error, then disable the firewall and check if the problem is fixed.
- Error 8004010F
People may face the error 8004010F or “Outlook data file cannot be accessed (error 8004010F)” error statement while trying to send or receive emails. This may happen because either emails are saved at a wrong location, incorrect Outlook profile is configuration or insufficient Outlook permissions.
Solutions: Sometimes, when users are using multiple email accounts, Outlook may tend to save emails to the wrong location. To fix this problem, you will need to remove Outlook data files and add them again. If this is not what you want, you can change the location where emails are getting delivered.
If it is due to an incorrectly configured Outlook Profile, then you should try adding the already existing data files to it.
If Outlook has insufficient permissions to write to the data files, you will have to fix the problem by taking the ownership of the data files.
