After moving a mailbox to another exchagne server, outlook can not open the mailbox

I just added another exhchange server to my domain. Once the installation was complete i moved one mailbox to the new server. I change my outlook profile to point to the new server.

Now everytime i try and open outlook, it hangs for about 30 seconds then tells me it can not open the folder.

Did you move the mailbox using the ExchangeTask Wizard in AD?

Move the mailbox back first. It sounds like the server information hasn't updated. Move it back and then confirm Outlook works. If it does, then try moving the mailbox again.

I fixed the problem late last night. It was a firewall issue on my exchange server. I dont know why it was enabled, by default the firewall on w2k3 servers should be off.
