"The name  could not be resolved" in Outlook 2000

I've recently set up Exchange 2000. I've set up some test accounts, and they work fine using OWA. However, when I try to add Exchange as a service into Outlook 2000 clients, I get the "The name  could not be resolved..." message. It works ok for the Administrator account, - it resolves the Server name etc, but can't seem to see any other accounts.

Any suggestions welcome!

Search for the Host file on the WK PC's, edit it and remove the .SAM ext, enter the exchange server IP and reboot the WK

Hope this helps

When you add a user name and click Check Name.
It checks these credentials against both the Surname and Alias name fields.  If your sure you have the right info in this box.
Then make sure that the Mailboxes are not hidden mailboxes, as these cannot be listed, until they're unhidden, and added to the Outlook client.
The other possible reason is that you have created Custom Recipients.

Check to see if these help.
If not email me at     tony@pc-tony.com

I don't think it's a host file problem because I can resolve one mailbox (the administrator one). I've checked mailbox permissions and they seem ok. Even using OWA it can only seem to find the administrator's mailbox. I've tried the MS KB suggestions (q268754 and q257885).

Thanks for your suggestions so far! (pc-tony - I'm not sure what custom recipients are).

Solved!
I tried setting up a new address list with some filter rules and that seems to have solved the problem. I rather assumed that it would use some sort of default global address list.

This turned out to be a latency issue. Once the recipient update service has worked it's ok.
