Outlook help!!! ARGH
Posted on 2004-09-08
Okay, here's the situation:
I have Exchange Server (not 2K, Exchange Server on NT 4.0) set up on my server here at work. Everybody in the office uses Outlook, and we're all using the Microsoft Exchange Server as our email store.
On Friday, I thought it would be neat if I could sync my Outlook Express at home to my work email. Instead of using the Exchange Server, I decided to connect to the system via SMTP/POP3 (because Outlook Express doesn't support MSES). Everything downloaded peachy, keeping a copy on the server and all.
Now, however, when I'm at work, there's suddenly no notification of incoming mail until I click on the Inbox contents window of my Outlook! I didn't change anything to the properties of my Inbox, but it seems syncing up with POP3/SMTP has totally FUBAR-ed my email that I get via MSES.
Has anybody heard of anything remotely like this? And if so, how do I fix it? I don't have that much knowledge of MSES, but it seems to me that the server isn't notifying me of email, perhaps because its looking for me at my home IP address? If so, I don't know how to change that!
Any help would be appreciated!
