Offline Address Book 0x80190197

Issue: when Outlook 2007/2010 attempts to download the offline address book via CAS Web Distribution the following error is recieved:

Task 'Microsoft Exchange' reported error (0x80190197) : 'The operation failed'

This error occurs when Outlook attempts to download the offline address book through a proxy server. This is heavily identified... please see:

However today I found another scenario which produces exactly the same error. My clients internally download the OAB through HTTP and externally they download the OAB via HTTPS.

In IIS7 go to the OAB Virtual Directory and click SSL Settings.

Untick Require SSL as internal clients are trying to download the OAB without SSL encryption.

Apply the settings.


  1. I never faced this error so I don't have any idea about the causes and solution of this error. As far as I understand with the given post I can say the error can be solved by following the steps given in this post. Thanks for the post.

  2. This workaround worked for me! But I need to figure out the URL this OAB are trying to access.

  3. This fix didn't work for me. I went to check the SSL settings and it was already unticked. :\

  4. I have been looking for a much better way to show my appreciation to Dr.Ogudugu but i have not been able to make a perfect conclusion, But i decided to start with this procedure by sharing my great experience that i had with Dr.Ogudugu with the world so that everyone can know how powerful Dr.Ogudugu is. I contacted Dr.Ogudugu some weeks back through these details +2348057266712 or GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM which i took from the internet to narrate my relationship problems to him so that he came help me out. The great news about all these was just after 48 hours that i contacted Dr.Ogudugu my lover that left me came back to me...
