Hi,
Every time I try and open Microsoft Outlook it says your exchange server is unavailable. But when I hit the retry button it goes straight in. A few people are having this problem and I have reconfigured the mail manually and set up the profiles again. I also have to set Outlook to open up their profile by default. This causes a problem where there is more than one profile on the computer as it starts coming up with the same error message again.  

Any ideas.

Hi jazzray,

Can you look in the event.log? Perhaps that will give you an indication of what is going on.

Right click My Computer and select manage.
Click on Event Viewer.
Click on Application.

Let us know what you find in there.

cheers,
frankco

Hi Frankco It seems nopthing is going on in the Event Viewer.

It seems that when I updated Microsoft outlook this problem kept happening. I uninstalled Microsft Office and Reinstalled it without doing the updates and it seems to work fine now but a few people are still having the problem. I think this may be a DNS issue.

Thanks for you reply.
