No Transport Provider Available using Outlook 2000 and Exchange 5.5

1/3 of our users are not able to send any email via Outlook 2000 and Exchange 5.5 but they can via Outlook Express.  They receive a message back stating that No Transport Provider is available.

I have setup an Outlook profile that just has a PST file and an internet mail sservice which also does not work.
