Network Problems in Outlook 2010 with 2 different Exchange connections
Posted on 2013-05-20
I've just installed a 2011 SBS server for a client who previously had no server and used hosted exchange for their email. Their domain is still in the middle of transferring from their old provider to a new one so as an interim measure I have set up Outlook on each PC to connect both to the new server and the old hosted Exchange server. My hope was at least that way they don't have to wait for days with no email while the domain transfers.
My problem is however I seem to be having network issues opening folders on the hosted exchange mailboxes and either get spinning blue disk for minutes before the folder opens or I get "Cannot display the folder, cannot access the specified folder location".
I remember that there was a limit to the number of connections Outlook could have open and I'm wondering if my problems are due to this. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get round this please? Using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit PCs.
