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.

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.
