Exchange 2007


"the action could not be completed. the name could not be matched to a name in the address list.".

The above message poped up when I try to setup an email account utilizing a mail icon from control panel, the Microsoft Outlook XP.

I've got my Exchange 2007 installed on Windows 2003 server.

check the name is correct with name present on the server
secondly do check name on mail when you type the name if still this doesent work
then there are  only two things you need to look at
1)the name spelling is not correct which you are typing to check go to ex 2k7 exchange management console from program list and open it up go to recipient configuration from left hand side navigation panel and select mailbox and check fot the usermailbox .>>> if you can find the mail box then just look at the alias next to it and type the same alias on the cleint outlook setup and click check names it will pick it up if not then i am sure the mail box dosent exist.
Let me know the outcome i am intrested in result
if this work select this as accepted solution so others can get easy way to solve their issues same like urs

this one has nothing to do i think with wat you are guessing but have you tried my solution ?
for your I think this might have telation with my problem, check it plz

The solution i can see is:
you can resolve the issue by checking the network NIC card
configuration.....if they are been used as a bridge network ..also verify the
DNS if everything is configured properly. In my case there were Two NIC cards
Bridged together ,I broke the bridge which resolved the problem
If you are happy noe please select yes on is what you are looking for thnx
hi any luck does it rings any bells on my solution if so please accept the solution by click on right hand side

Hi Vishal_impact,

i am very thankfull for your help, i have tested what you suggested and everything is correct spelling etc..

Any other ideas please?
so that means you can see mailbox and if you check name on the user side still it gives the error ...
can you please confirm me and if you can post me the print screen of the mail settings which you are trying
