MS Exchange Server being a pig!!

Attempting to connect a new user/machine to a 2003 server with exchange.  The machine is loaded with Windows 8.1 and is connecting to the domain, no problem.  Managed to resolve administrator exchange profile in control panel, but couldn't resolve user although everything checks out ok on the server end?  Then tried the user and wouldn't resolve? After that, tried 'administrator' again and that wouldn't resolve.  Also asked for password but would not accept proper password when put in?

Things I've tried:
Credentials manager: Add user
Check domain
Check server settings
Reset client computer properties on server

I have also made a copy of the old ,ost file to be on the safe side, but not taken a backup of the server.  NB, doing this by remote too.  although I have the ability to restart, logoff, ctrl-alt-del, etc

Many thanks in advance,

Snowy

NB.. There is another pc on the network that uses the same username, but I don't think that should cause any trouble?
