Recently transitioned 20 Win98, Win Me, and Win XP machines to Hosted Exchange solution, using Outlook 2000 CW Edition. Getting random connectivity issues from machine to machine. Different machines every day having these problems; Upon starting Outlook..."cannot connect to Exchange Server, select "retry", "work offline". Sometimes "retry" works, sometimes not and tasking out of Outlook is the only way to get it to stop. Then, some can connect first try and later in the day they lose connection. Have 1.5 SDSL in place, so bandwidth shouldn't be the issue. Is the RPC Binding Order the issue? Should I change the Reg Setting to NetBios first in the RPC Binding Order, then TCP/IP? And, will this work for all machines?

Check the server detection timeout and increase it if necessary

Rpc_Binding_Order should set in first the transport you preferably use to acces your Echange server
Rpc_Binding_Order ncacn_ip_tcp,ncalrpc,ncacn_spx,ncacn_np,netbios,ncacn_vns_spp
if you acces using TCPIP, if fails, then use RPC etc....
