We have Exchange Server 2003 installed on Windows 2003 Server. We are using Outlook 2003.

There is absolutely no problem accessing exchange mailboxes using OWA from either the server itself - or any machine over the internet.

In Outlook2003 that is running on the SERVER we setup a test profile and it connects to the mailbox without a problem.

From ANY OTHER machine using Outlook 2003 or Outlook 2002/XP these clients are unable to connect to the exchange server. When setting up a profile and entering the SERVER NAME and USER NAME and hit CHECK NAME - instead of underlining the program just locks up for a minute or two, then says it can't connect to the server.

Strangely enough, if I try and access the shares on the SERVER (by doing \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\ from RUN on the clients) I can see the availible shares on the server (after entering the correct username/password of course)

I searched the forums and couldn't seem to find any answers that worked - does anyone have any ideas?

I wanted to add that if I create a VPN connection DIRECTLY to the server I can in fact connect - albeit very, very slow. However this is not a reasonable solution to the problem.

Thanks.

Yeah... I've tried the VPN to get your e-mail thing, and apparently it is very slow (depending on your type of connection). Check out the RPC over HTTPs article in this message board:

aphex,

Good day

I have experienced this issue before and found the answer in my name resolution server. DNS or WINS. If you use DNS make sure that you can resolve the servers name internally as in your previous message you said that you could see the share via IP so assume you were not able to se e them via FQDN.

Regards

RM
