I am having problems setting up email on outlook 2010. Email is located on a remote exchange 2003.
I have test account using thunderbird and work fine.
The error message is:
Log onto incoming mail server (pop3). Your email server sever rejected your user name. Verify your user name for this account in Account Settings. The server responded -err invalid command.

Are you trying to setup the account as an Exchange account or as a POP3 account?

Are you using the same settings that you did with Thunderbird - i.e. POP server, username, password?

It could be the way your username has been entered

Try DOMAIN\USER\MAILBOX
Try the e-mail address

I found out that it was an 2000 exchange server which does not support outlook 2010.
