After a server crash, I restored the Exchange server DB, however I have a problem connecting an outlook client to the server.  I can access the mailbox using the web access client, but when I try to connect outlook, I get a message box saying "The action could not be completed.  The name could not be matched to a name in the address list"  

any ideas?

thanks.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I solved this problem.  When the exchange server was re-added as a domain controler, it was not maked as a global catalog.  I made that change and rebooted the server and all was fine.
