"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.

Wish Marketing would stop bothering you?

Is your marketing department constantly asking for new email signature updates? Are they requesting a different design for every department? Do they need yet another banner added? Don’t let it get you down! There is an easy way to manage all of these requests...

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.
