I receive the following error message when trying to access ANY Rules & Alerts functions in Outlook 2010:

" The operation failed. The messaging interfaces have returned an unknown error. If the problem persists, restart Outlook."

I have:

tried restarting Outlook 2010 several times, still getting the same error message each time; anduninstalled and reinstalled Outlook 2010. Has anyone encountered this error message and found a fix for it?

Try to create a new outlook profile and check if the issue occurs.

To open Outlook data file, open Outlook > Click on File > Open > open Outlook data file.

Refer the link below to create a new profile in Outlook:

Thank you Ganesh. I wound up running Microsoft Outlook Inbox Repair Tool, and it completely fixed the problem.
