I just installed exchange on SBS 2003 and then Outlook 2003 on top.  I kind of did not pay attention to the "don't install because of MAPI error" message that came up becasue I needed to run Small Business contact manager and share that from the server.  

So now for some reason, I can't uninstall Outlook from the exchange server.

And, none of the client workstations can sync with exchange.  Event viewer says:

(see next post)

I dn't need to use outlook on that server if it is going to make those errors.  How can I fix this so that Exchange works properly again?

Your help appreciated.

The MAPI call 'OpenMsgStore' failed with the following error:
The attempt to log on to the Microsoft Exchange Server computer has failed.
The MAPI provider failed.

After that I get the following errors:

LDAP Bind was unsuccessful on directory main.ALG.local for distinguished name ''. Directory returned error:[0x51] Server Down.  DC=ALG,DC=local


AND

Process INETINFO.EXE (PID=1952). All the DS Servers in domain are not responding.

AND

LDAP Bind was unsuccessful on directory main.ALG.local for distinguished name ''. Directory returned error:[0x51] Server Down.  DC=ALG,DC=local

AND

The Win32 API call 'DsGetDCNameW' returned error code [0x862] The specified component could not be found in the configuration information.  The service could not be initialized.  Make sure that the operating system was installed properly.

I have a feeling they are all related.

What happens when you try to remove Outlook? That is the first thing I would be looking to do.
Once Outlook is out, you may then get away with reinstalling Exchange on top of the existing install and the MAPI calls are put back.
