"the action could not be completed. the name could not be matched to a name in the address list."

This is the error that I recieve when I attempt to join a client to my exchange server. This has not been a problem in the past. I started having the trouble a couple of months ago. So I just used pop for my additional clients. We are small. Tried to resolve the problem with a reinstall last night. Now no clients can connect to the exchange server via outlook client 2k,2003 unless I use pop. I have looked at other posts. I have pinged the FQDN and believe I have checked the Global Address list. The webclient is working fine.

Please help.

I am not getting the 929 error any longer. I am now trying to discover if the following is part of the problem.

An RPC communications error occurred. An attempt to listen over RPC has failed. Windows 2000 Error: 1703. [ncacn_at_dsp BASE IL MAIN BASE 1 504] (14)

Thanks for the help. I was able to resolve the problem, I believe. My RUS for the domain was set to never update. I set it to always and rebuilt it.

The following links helped me to find the solution and I did the rollup update per ikm7176's advice.
