Hi,

I am looking for KB article(s) on the process that occurs when Outlook is opened, ie.

- on startup, what does it do?
- how does it communicate with the Exchange server, DC/GC and for what info?
- process flow from initiation till the time Outlook opens: ie. detailed information as to what occurs in terms of its design.

I have searched Technet and PSS but haven't been able to find anything. I am referring to Exchange 2000 Server and Outlook 2000 SR-1.

can anyone help?

thanks

Simple. This is what it does.

User logs on to Active directory.
Opens outlook ( MAPI client), assuming he/she has mailbox in exchange 2000
outlook uses RPC (remote procedure call) protocol to retrieve your mail from exchange 2000
Exchange 2000 uses LDAP to talk to global catalog through port 389, asking who you are, where do you live, do you have mail, and where is your mail resides (which exchange server, routing group, storage group, mail store and etc)
then exchange delivers to your outlook.

it is that simple
