Outlook 553 Error using Norton Antivirus Small Business 10.0 and Exchange Server.

I have a small 10 computer network running exchnage server on the SBS 2003 server. Exchange server is only used to allow the users to share and view each others calenders. The exchange server is not used for any email handling. For email my users have a standard POP email host. On each client computer outlook is configured with 2 accounts, a pop email account (example: ssterling@evansenginc.com) and an exchange account (example: ssterling@evans.local). When my user go to their outlook calender and try to create a new appointment they add the email addresses to the invitees list and send the appointment. Outlook returns the error message:

0x800ccc6e The respnded: 553 ssterling@evans.local is not allowed to use this function.

If I remove the exchange account from outllook then the users a allowed to send new appointment notifcications to invitees. If the exchange account is active I get the above error message and appointments cannot be sent to invitees. Note: this use to work until recently.

THIS OCCURED AFTER INSTALLING NORTON ANTIVIRUS SMALL BUSINESS 10.0. I have disable and even uninstalled NORTON and the same issue is still present. Norton has changed something with the op system or exchange server.

Keep in mind that this worked fine until I installed Norton Small Business 10.0 antivirus on the server and clients. I have uninstalled thinking it will work again but the problem is still there.

Check the following :

Norton Personal Firewall (Symantec)
If you are running Norton Personal Firewall 2002, Norton Internet Security, or Norton SystemWorks software by Symantec, remove your Norton Person Firewall or Norton Internet Security software. If the problem is resolved, you can reinstall your Norton software and the problem should not happen again.
Method 3: Check your antivirus vendor's Web site for additional suggestions
If your antivirus solution includes an e-mail scanning feature, you may have to do additional configuration to use Outlook or Outlook Express with the antivirus e-mail scanning feature.

Antivirus software that has been known to cause this problem includes products by the following vendors:
�      Symantec (Norton)
