Outlook is attempting to query a non-existent Exchange Server
Posted on 2003-11-06
We currently have a user who when they attempt to logon from their Outlook 2002 client to our Exchange 2000 servers, receive a dialog box that states the client is attempting to communicate with a server that no longer exists on the network.
The rogue server was initially in the organisation approx. 3 years ago, in the meantime the whole Exchange structure has been totally rebuilt from the ground up. The original mailboxes had their content exported to PST files, which then re-imported into the new organisation. Therefore, my only conclusion is that something within the users re-imported data is referring to the old server.
No other clients on the network refer to this server & the situation happens from any PC that the user logs onto.
Please could someone advised on a way of tracking down & removing this rogue entry from the users mailbox? I believe this will be a server side issue, as with every new PC build a new user profile is created.
Any idea's gratefully received.
