A computer running Outlook was working okay and stopped working. OWA for this user works okay.
When I fire up Outlook, I get the message:
The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action.
Then, a dialog pops up to 'Check Name'. If I click Check Name, it says:
The name cannot be resolved. The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action.
If I click Cancel a couple times to exit, it says
Cannot open your default e-mail folders. The file c:\documents and settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook2.ost is not an offline folder file.
Then Outlook closes.
I can ping the exchange server okay, I tried setting the DNS to our internal server on the local PC without success. I've read quite a few threads here, but nothing quite seems to be helping.
