Outlook 2007 connection status data

Hi there,
When I do a ctrl-right click outlook 2007, I could bring up the connection status window.  And I almost always see 3-4 connection to my local domain controller (it's also a global catelog server).  Is this normal?
If so, what are those connections for?

From the domain controller's netstat result, I see a bunch of connection (3-4 for each client machine) through TCP port 1675.  Again, is this kind of traffic expected with Outlook 2007?

We are running Exchange 2003 Enterprise (SP2) on Windows 2003 Enterprise server (SP1, clustered) within AD 2003.

Thanks in advance for any help and leads.

Henry

I'm not sure about that specific tcp port, but yes, it is normal for each Outlook client to keep connections open to your DC's.  Exchange and AD are heavily intertwined.

This accepted solution does nothing to explain why there are multiple connections to mail servers and domain controllers with different values. The fact that there are multiple connections is rather obvious. I can't see any useful information in that solution.
