I'm having problems connecting to my exchange server. I can see the machine it is installed on by browsing the Network Neighborhood. But I can't connect to it to get my email.
It just times out and says :
"The network did not respond in a timely fashion to determine the existence of an Exchange Server, you may retry ....."
I am the only person who can't connect out of 300+ users. Help?

First check yr server by running "Run optimizer" check the  limit of mailbox is above 300. In case of client side goto Exchange server properties type the mailbox name and server click check name , if its ok then it will work ,else reinstall client.

First, check that the properties in Control Panel/Mail and Fax, Delivery is correct (especially the spelling of your exchange server!).  Then veriry that your workstation name resolution setup and network protocols are the same as everyone else.  Also check that you are in the same workgroup/domain as the others.

I'm Sorry!  I gave you the wrong menu path above...
"Control Panel/Mail and Fax, Delivery" should have been
"Control Panel/Mail and Fax/Services/Microsoft Exchange Server/Properties."
