The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action
Posted on 2006-06-22
I have inherited an IT technical position and we are running a windows sbs 20003. We have a small LAN 8 users connected, however i have recently added a computer (windows XP Pro) to the domain and today i have added a user by following the sbs 2003 server management screen wizard and followed the user permission template, which was straightforward. I understood that when i have added a computer in the passed (2 months ago) it was no problem. When i originally configured the new computer, however, i connected an existing user - no problems and set up Outlook 2003. When i now attempt to log in on this computer with the new user it tells me that "The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action."
Perhaps i have a very simplistic understanding but cannot fathom why this is the case. I have obviously browsed for support here and the www but without luck. Does anyone have any clues as to potential causes of this error.
