Outlook 2007 enable to connect to Exchange 2003
Posted on 2008-11-02
I have an outlook 2007 client running on Windows VISTA business edition. It has been running fine for 6 months. But stopped working late last week. The exchange server it is trying to connect is Exchange 2003 running on Windows SBS 2003.
On outlook startup the error comes "The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook mist be online or connected to complete this action". On pressing "OK" to this it comes up with a windows where it prompts to define exchange server and mailbox name.
I am able to ping to exchange server and there doesnt seem to be any changes in the system. I can connect to exchange using webmail thus isolating possibilities of problems with Mailbox.
Your help is much appreciated as I have already spent 16 hours on this problem and cant find anything.
