Hi.  Im using Microsoft Server 2003, Enterprise Ed.
I have created a new user and mail box and when i try to setup the email on the client computer i receive the error msg, "The name could not be resolved.  The name could not be matched to a name in the address list. "  I have had a look around the users profile and i notice that they are not listed in the Global Address List.  As far as i can tell when i run through the wizard and create a new user a mailbox has been created.  And their webmail has been setup while the outlook issue is resolved and that works fine also so a mail box has obviously been created.  Any ideas, pls help

Run the recipient update service.  I think the user needs to appear in the GAL.  Also, in the advanced mode of ADU&C make sure the attribute to hide from exchange address lists is not checked.
