One of my client PC system keep coming up with " Outlook is retrieving data from the Microsoft Exchange server "ABS". You can cancel the request or minimize this message to the Windows taskbar until outlook closes the message automatically" Can anyone explain why that happen? and what can i do.

We get the same message too sometimes. I have seen some posts relating to this being caused by bandwith or name resolution (DNS) issues where it was seeing the mail servers external IP address vs. internal. It's a new "feature" of Outlook Xp which can be disabled by the registry.

Do you have a link to this registry fix? We get it too.

Thanks.

well we have the same problem, we just moved users from exchang 5.5 win2k in a data domain to a production domain running win2k+ex2k-sp3,
the problem we are having is that the users mailboxes were exported to pst files, then pulled in again on the new domain,
they get the error message, but it gives the old exchange server name ( the one running 5.5) not the new exchange server running 2k-sp3

any ideas, or resoultions for this, if it was giving the the new exchange server name, i would understand it,

all outlook users are running outlook xp with sp2

That one's a pain. You have to go to each machine and change, though Outlook properties, what server each user is connected to. On the flip side, you could try creating a static WINS and/or DNS entry for the OLD server name and point it to the NEW server name, and then take your time getting around to the old client machines. Don't know if it would work, but it's worth a shot.

Looks like there are some replication happening either to the content on public folders (address book or content on the PF's).

Just check the preferred GC ( on the same site as the exchange server) at this time and check the replication.

Cheers

I had this same issue as well.

In order to get the client machines to look at the correct server, I found the best thing to do was to delete their existing profile and create a new one with a different name.

As far as the 'Requesting data' doing the Reg hack and as well going into Tools/options/other and clearing the box 'Enable Instant Messaging in Microsoft Outlook' did the trick for me. None of my users have complained since.

Hope this helps all of you!
