Name could not be resolved Hell!
Posted on 2000-02-04
Although I have seen a few questions of this sort out here, none of the answers have helped. I have a client who dials into an MS Exchange Server which happens to be their all in one server. They use Outlook as their e-mail application and when I try to "Check Name" of both the user and the Exchange Server, I get the error that "The name could not be resolved. Network problems are preventing connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server computer. Contact your system administrator if this condition persists. Well, it persists and I am the administrator and I have no clue.
I have uninstalled everything and reinstalled from scratch and nothing. I can get into the network via the dialup and I can ping the Exchange Server via host name as well as IP address but nothing via Outlook's Check Name function. I can't even check name with the IP address of the sever.
Can't think of much else to do, am I missing something small and stupid?
