How to connect to exchange server with outlook 2003?
Posted on 2007-12-05
I set up exchange server on sbs 2003 r2, i used my name (client computer name) for testing before doing it to other computers on the network. i am the administator to the laptop. i click on send/receive in outlook 2003 and i get the error message :
"Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server' reported error (ox8004011D) : ' The server is not available. Contact your administrator if this condition persists." Forgot to mention when i click on the send/receive button the status from the two taks are "Mecirosft Exchange server" -Sending, the status is completed.
then on the second task below the first it says(this is where the erro comes in" Microsoft Exchange server' that is where i get the error mesage mentioned above. I am new to networking.
Please advise what i am doing incorrectly to get my emails from my host server. i am now using squirrel mail to view my emails i prefer to do it with outlook and exchange server.
Is there a difference if not using Exchange Server?
Is Exchange Server to monitor the flow of emails and to keep copies in my server?
