Outlook 2007: Task ‘RSS Feeds’ reported error (0x8004010F)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Andy @ 8:46 am

Outlook 2007 stopped synchronizing RSS feeds with the following error:
Task ‘RSS Feeds’ reported error (0x8004010F) : ‘The operation failed. An object cannot be found.’

I found a lot of suggestions stating that you need to recreate the Outlook profile. I am sure that works, but for sophisticated setups this can be quite a hassle. This solution worked for me:


Basically just go to Tools / Account Settings/ RSS Feeds. Click each Feed, Click :”Change”, then click “Change Folder’. No reason to change anything, just hit OK. Hit Send/Receive after this.

  6. This did not quite work for me, however by going into the send receive groups i was able to disable the RSS with in there and viola.

  7. I get the same message. I followed your instructions, only found the RSS Feeds to be blank–there were no feeds to do anything with!

  8. Woo-hoo. That will speed up Outlook. If you want to remove the RSS subscriptions from Outlook, you may wish to do this following.

    Mass Remove Feed Subscriptions from Outlook:

    1. Click Tools menu and then Options again.
    2. Select the poorly named Mail Setup tab
    3. Click the Data Files button
    4. Click the RSS Feeds tab
    5. Click the first feed and scroll down to the bottom of the feed list
    6. Hold the SHIFT key and click the last feed. All feeds should now be selected.
    7. Click the Remove button
    8. Confirm you want them all deleted.
    Now we’ll need to delete the old feed content as well…

    9. Expand the RSS Feed folder under Personal Folders
    10. Select each feed and press Delete. You’ll have to confirm the delete.
    11. Repeat ad nauseum until all are gone.
