Posted on 2006-05-21
I get the following error message when i try to setup outlook with an exchange server account;
"The action could not be completed. The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action."
I have a Small Business Server 2003 setup on our local network with around 10 or more client computers. The Computers are XP running outlook 2003. All computers have successfully connected to the exchange server except one which happens to connect to the network remotly with a LAN TO LAN connection (draytek routers)
The problem computer is runnning windows xp pro. this PC has two users the 1st user can collect e-mail no probs by connecting to the exchange server no worries. the second user cannot and just gets the above mentioned message.
i'm pulling my hair out! someone please help...
