outlook sends / receives fine but comes up with the error "outlook is retrieving data from the microsoft exchange server (servername). you can
cancel the request or minimise this message to the windows taskbar until outlook closes the message automatically."
a further piece of text below with a checkbox says "always minimise this message when a delay occurs"
1) installing office XP sp3
2) deleting his local and roaming profile and starting fresh.
still get the same error,
there are no problems with the exchange server as everyone else sends / receives fine without this message & he has no outrageously large emails incomming or being sent..
thank you for your help.
