Cannot connect to exchange server - Deleteing Mail profile and redoing fixes UNTIL YOU CLOSE OUTLOOK
Posted on 2005-02-25
I've got a wierd one. (I guess if they weren't wierd I could figure them out) I have a user that suddenly says she cannot get to our exchange server. We have Exchange 2000 and her pc is 2000 office 2000 with latest patches. It comes up with the error cannot connect to Exchange server retry or work offline. What I ended up doing is deleting her mail profile via control panel and redoing it. I open outlook no problem and all her mail is there. She has a pst that it all pulls down to and I ran a scanpst on that which shows no problem. Everything is fine until I close outlook. When I open it again, boom Cannot connect to exchange server retry/work off line. I go and delete the profile again and re-create and it's fine. Ran adware and found lots of alexia junk on it and killed it all. Have Mcafee 8.0i, tried disabling scanning etc. Upped the time out to 99 on the server. Have the exchange server and ip in the hosts file. Added netbui. Can ping the server by both name and IP without problem. It's something related to this darn profile and I can't figure it out. The topper to all of this is I am 3000 miles away on vacation and I would like it to stay that way but I have to keep dialing in to look at it. Help with this would be GREATLY appriciated! :D
Thanks in advance.
