Outlook 2007 Loses Connection with Exchange 2007

epspencer08 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I am using Outlook 2007 accessing a shared Exchange 2007 Sever and my Outlook keeps locking up. My OS is Vista Ultimate 32-bit. After resuming from sleep mode Outlook fails to download or send e-mail messages. During this time, in the lower left-hand corner of Outlook the message says  Trying to connect to Microsoft Exchange. I have to quit Outlook and then kill the Outlook process using Task Manager in order to start up Outlook again. When I do Outlook will immediately connect to the server and start downloading messages. This happens whenever my computer goes into sleep mode. I think the duration of sleep mode is related. My host is unable to help me with this problem.
