Some time outlook express flash this error on system tray “Outlook is trying to retrieve the data from Exchange server”. Even i didn’t configure outlook to “use cached exchange mode”.
How to get rid off this error?
Watch Question

If Outlook looses network connectivity, you will also get the error message.  It is not dependent on cached exchange mode .........
I didn't think that you could setup an exchange server in Outlook Express???


I mean to say outlook 2003 not outlook express. But the problem still persists. Any remedy???
Network disconnects and timeouts can be a pain.

First check all physical connections on the local pc and at the server ...(ie LAN cards, cables, switches, etc..)

Then see here ......
