Using GoDaddy IMAP in Outlook 2013. Error message started appearing about 1 week ago. Prior to that, no problem. Message reappears every few minutes. Suggestions to try? TIA!
 
Right click on your email address in the folder list and choose Open File Location. Close Outlook. Delete the ost file for your godaddy account (should be highlighted in the Explorer windows) and restart Outlook.

Note: if you have calendar, contacts, and tasks in 'this computer only' folders, export them first, otherwise you'll lose them.
 
I followed your instructions, Diane, but lost my calendar data - how do I get it back?
