The instance entry in tnsnames.ora is as below. I could connect through
sqlplus /@myprod1
SQL>

MYPROD1 =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = myprodsrv)(PORT = 1521))
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = myprod1)
    )
  )
But user told me he couldn't connect myprod1, and got the following error message.
ERROR:
ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor
The user told me they liked our setting myprod1 with .world in tnsnames.ora. But if I set up SERVICE_NAME=myprod1.world in tnsnames.ora file,  it would fail to connect myprod1.
How to fix it?
Thanks!

User said he could connect from his desktop and he could tnsping the instance. But he couldn't connect the instance from any other server. Anything wrong?

Backup LISTENER.ORA file!!!!!!!

In ...\network\admin open listener.ora

see

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
  (SID_LIST =
    (SID_DESC =
      (SID_NAME = PLSExtProc)
      (ORACLE_HOME = D:\Ora10g)
      (PROGRAM = extproc)
    )
    (SID_DESC =
      (SID_NAME = test)
      (ORACLE_HOME = D:\Ora10g)
    )
  )

Add the entry
    (SID_DESC =
      (SID_NAME = test)
      (ORACLE_HOME = D:\Ora10g)
    )
with regard to the particular Oracle Home and SID Name.

Restart the listener:
c:>lsnrctl stop
c:>lsnctl start


Please change "Exchange Email Server" "with "Oracle database"
