outlook xp Standard and exchange 2000

Hi, I went to a office to add a new machine to thier SBS 2003 network , I went to setup Outlook xp on a Exchange 2000 and recieved the message that the "network connection was unavailible or exchange was offline and can not continue." I was logon as Admin, other workstation had access to both, outlook is installed on local machines and not part of client apps from the server. I'm in a spot and need to reslove this, any ideas would be great.
Thank You,

Well, I would be surprised to find an Exchange 2000 server on an SBS2003 network... it should be Exchange 2003.

But did you add the workstation with the Add Computer wizard on the server?  Did you use the ConnectComputer wizard to join the workstation to the domain?  Why is Outlook not part of client apps from the server?

Please see http://sbsurl.com/add for an overview of this process.

Thanks, I added the box to the domain manually, same user ...thanks I should have run the wizard. I thought manual would work. No site licence for outlook only local installs.
I just got to look at this network "Bosses Wifes office " 
Ill try it tomorrow. I'll post one way or the other.

Thank You
