I'm receiving the below error message with the offline connector. This is for a brand new user. I've tried with different mailboxes and same message. So it's definitely a problem on the user's pc. i've tried uninstalling office 2003 as well as the connector, going so far to even remove office from the registry and i still receive this error message. I talked to support for about an hour and a half today and they were equally stumped.

If i look at the debug.log file, i see something about mimetomapi, conversion has failed message, which seems to indicate that koff has failed to convert the message from the server into the mapi format.

Has anyone ever seen this before. Subject line is unable to synchronize a message.

An error occurred while synchronizing the 'Inbox/00000066' message from the server.
Kerio Outlook Connector wasn't able to deliver this message to your Outlook account.

Please contact your system administrator. You can use Kerio WebMail to access the message.

I had a user report the same problem today. Similar situation: fairly new user, using outlook. (Not sure exactly which version).

Any fixes in place?

I never did find exactly why this was happening. i've only seen it happen with the one user. tried everything. upgraded her to outlook 2007 (she had been on 2003). called tech support and had them look at it as well as email them the failed conv folder on the kerio mail server. I did notice on her laptop that outlook express was corrupt and i know that that can cause problems (ie you can't uninstall outlook express with causing some big issues). So on her laptop outlook express wouldn't open and i tried everything to repair it, with no success.

Sad to say that in the end i just replaced her laptop. Not the greatest solution but it probably needed to be replaced.

the issue from the log file seems to be an issue with the koc being able to convert the MIME format stored on the kerio server to the mapi store that the connector uses. If anyone knows how to fix this, i would be interested to hear.
