I'm the IT-administrator. There is 25 users. All running Windows XP SP3 Professional. We have an exchange server running exchange 2003.
Everybody is connected to network and exchange, except a single user who has issues with exchange. It stopped working this monday, he opened Outlook while we had some brief network issues.
He can access the network, go on the internet, access shared folders on the server etc. But he can not connect to exchange.
If I go to mail -> Exchange accounts -> settings, the settings are:
- Microsoft Exchange-server: beck.becklaw.local (same setting used on all computers)
- User Name: Lars SECRET
When I click the [Check Name] button, to find the user, it says: There is no connection to microsoft exchange. Again, this is the only user with that problem.
HOWEVER, if I type the server name of my domain controller (
becklaw), it can find him.
Also, it works if I type the IP adress of the server in the Microsoft Exchange-server field, which is:
It then finds the user, and replaces Microsoft Exchange-server with:
But it doesn't work, because it says: There is no connection to Microsoft Exchange when I open outlook.
It seems like some sort of DNS mismatch, and I have tried doing
Have anyone of you experience similar issues with one of your users?
