Outlook 97

I have a strange problem!
We have an exchange server system setup and i am trying to configure offline folder synchronization for a laptop user who has a mailbox on the server with the correct permissions. When i try to synchronize his folders (online) a message always appears telling me that i cannot log on to the exchange server and the synchronization fails.
Any ideas?

Is the laptop user logged on to your company's domain when you try this? Oh, and you've posted this question twice--I suggest you delete the second instance so you don't lose the points.

I'd sugegst reading and verifying all the settings in the following two MS documents...

OL97: Troubleshooting Synchronization Problems
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q172/0/72.ASP?LNG=ENG&SA=TECH&FR=1

OL97: Remote Mail, Offline Folders, and Working Offline
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q162/0/46.ASP

I believe that if you follow the steps in those documents, you'll be able to determine a setting/switch that just happened not to be set properly.

So, what was the setting that needed to be "adjusted". I'm just curious.
