some client PC cannot connect to sbs exchange 2003
Posted on 2009-02-14
We have a standalone server installed with SBS 2003 over a year and everything working fine.
Last week I have set up the exchange and use POP3 connector to download the emails from our ISP and distribute to the associated member mailbox.
Then I need to configurate the Outlook 2007 on 4 client PC by using their own user login and connect to the exchange server.
I have no problem to finished two of the client PC, connect to the exchange server, and send and receive email as expected.
But the other 2 client PC both have the same problem that not able to connect to the exchange server. When I click on the E-mail (outlook 2007) icon, a dialog box pop up (didn't happened to the first two PC) said:
connecting to server.domain.local
OK CANCEL button
I try every user name and password includes administrator but still not accept.
I click cancel to close the dialog box, then a new Microsoft exchange dialog box pop up and said:
Microsoft Exchange Server:
"Clara" (and a check name button on the right)
"Once the names have been checked and are underlined, click OK"
OK CANCEL button
(**Clara is the user of one of the first two PC beed setup sucessfully, not the local login user)
I never click OK because the user mailbox is not right, and I don't want to mess up Clara account (may be).
I click cancel to close the dialog box and a new one comes up again:
Microsoft Office Outlook (Title)
"Cannot open your default e-mail folders.The file C:\Documents and Settings\........\outlook.ost cannot be accessed. You must connect to Microsoft Exchange at least once before you can use your offline folder file."
When I click OK, the outlook closed.
I also try login to those two PC with my account (administrator right), but I got the same result.
P.S. All client PC are XP Pro w/ SP2
