Cannot connect to Exchange after rebooting computer

I am using Outlook 2007 to connect to Exchange my Small Business Server 2003 server. It has been setup for over a year with no problems.  Today I rebooted my computer and now Outlook cannot connect to the Exchange server.  I tried removing the Exchange account from my Mail Settings (through control panel), but when I try to add it back it says "Connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable".  I have not change any settings on my computer.  The last software that was installed was Tom Tom home (GPS navigation software).  I have other computers on the network and they can connect with no problems.  I also logged onto another computer with my credentials and was able to add my Exchange account there.   So it definitely sounds like an issue just with this computer.  Any suggestions, besides reloading the OS, would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Are you able to ping the server name using the NetBIOS name from your workstation?
i.e.
ping SERVERNAME

Can you also try to browse to http://SERVERNAME/exchange

Yes, I can ping and connect via http://office/exchange.  I also have two network drives that are connected and I can browse with no problems.

Go to Services and make sure all the Exchange services are running.  Also, go to System Manager and make sure the store is online.

You could try running system restore to a stage back to where it worked - then, you should be able to isolate what software installation/windows update caused the issue.

I have resolved the problem.  I logged on locally (meaning not onto the domain).  I then renamed my 'domain' profile directory then logged back onto the domain.  I had to transfer a few settings, but everything works.  Thanks for the responses.
